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.

Worth it

Building my first guitar, I hesitated on the price, then bought just two sizes. They cut so fast and cleanly they are worth every penny.

They produce a very clean cut whether used for inlay or bridge slots. A must have item.

1/16 is what I ordered and used in my dremel. Very nice cutting and clean on the bottom for inlay work.

Not only do they work great for inlaying, but I use them for detail carving... best I've found!

I originally bought these bits to cut acoustic guitar bridge slots. Since then I've used them in dozens of other woodworking projects. They are strong for their size (I haven't broken one yet even in tough woods like Wenge) and they stay sharp!



Here's a Wenge, Padauk, and Purpleheart box I'm working on. The inlays are all brass.

Pricey? Yep, but a must. They will break before they dull.

I've used a number of different inlay bits over the years and these are far and away the best I've used. Well worth the money and very nice. The clean cut and precision have me hooked!

I love these bits, even though I'm not a stringed instrument maker, stewmac is my go-to source for these. I make high-end jewelry boxes with lots of inlay, and these bits are the best I've found anywhere for use in inlay work. I also wish ,like someone else has already commented on, that these bits were also available in 1/64'' cutting dimension.

A specialty tool that is worth its weight in gold

I love these bits, i use them for just about everything - slotting acoustic bridges to inlay and bindings. Durable and very well machined. Being so thin you would think they would break real easy, but actually they are as tough as router bits in a micro design. The downcut helps to keep the work area clean so you can see as you are cutting. A definite 10 in my book
