Carbide Downcut Inlay Router Bits

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.

There are other options but none as accurate or clean cutting as these bits!

Down & out

I recently broke my 1/32 downcut bit and used various alternatives but nothing compares. These bits are the only way to get really clean inlay cuts - easy to see where you are cutting and to get an accurate profile of your inlay tracing. But they are fragile!

Cuts much better than Dremel bits

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I had a few bit that came with my Dremel tool and they are 6 flutes. They cut way too slow. These 2 flute bits that I bought from stewMac cuts so much faster, and not rough at all!

Sharp!

These bits are fantastic. They cut much smoother and cleaner than the non-carbide bits. They are a little on the expensive side for the size of, but in the end are certainly worth it once the inlay work is completed and the customers are happy.

The bits worked great and completely took care of the "fuzzy edge" problem. Thanks!

The little bit that could!

Purchased the 3/32 and the 3/64 to route inlay pockets for a LP standard rosewood fret board. Couldn't be more pleased. Did a test route with the 3/32 but it was obvious that it would be a little to large for the margins and corners and way to aggressive that close up so I opted too use the 3/64 for everything. That little guy cut through that rosewood like the proverbial hot knife in butter. Also used it to undo two MOP inlays fully set up and while I needed to take this a little slower it did the job well. Absolutely no fuzzy edges just as advertised. While $18 is a little rich for something the size of pencil lead I couldn't find it cheaper elsewhere so what's a guy gonna do.
