Carbide Downcut Inlay Router Bits

About This Item

The best for inlay work and saddle slotting!
Solid carbide lasts far longer than steel, and reverse spiral flutes cut downward for cleaner, "no fuzz" edges in routed cavities.

To use our 1/8"-shank bits in your laminate trimmer's 1/4" collet, see our #5246 Adapter Collet.

Length 1-1/2" (38.10mm)
Shank diameter 1/8" (3.18mm)

Use the larger bits for removing wood in the middle of your inlay work, and save the fine bits for the fine details. The fine detail bits are fragile, for routing intricate details only.

Excellent, clean cutting bits.

By

Verified Buyer


Very pleased with the way these bits cut. From routing the rosette to inlay on the fingerboard these bits help me get very clean smooth cuts.

use carefully, smoothly and with precision! the bit cuts nicely but be sure to run at high speed, preferably around 25k-30k rpm. slower speeds cause it to catch, surge and wander even with a firm grip.

It's hard to review router bits when technically it is about an expendable item similar to drill bits; there are good ones, better ones, and the really good ones you make an effort to take care of them like good tools, which these are.

These router bits are the same type that remind me of the downcut bits I used on my CNC machining center years ago. Take care of them and they will work very well for you.
