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.

Expensive, but worth it!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The sticker shock of these bits might frighten people off, but they are the highest quality bits I have yet found. Used carefully, they will easily last longer than anything else I've tried, and stay sharp seemingly forever, leaving no fuzzy edges, ever.

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!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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.
