Carbide Downcut Inlay Router Bits

About This Item

The best for inlay work and more!
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 Adapter Collet.

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

What type of bit do I need?
In our shops we use both, depending on the job and the type of wood we're working on.

Downcut Bits cut a very clean top edge of the rout with some fuzz around the bottom. These are perfect for jobs like cutting purflings and soundhole rosettes on softer woods like spruce and mahogany. We also use them for cutting inlay routs where you want a clean top edge with less possibility of grain tear out.

For the cleanest flat-bottom rout, use Upcut bits.

Get all the bits you need
We have a set of all 5 Downcut bits to add to your precision routing arsenal, and a set of all 10 upcut and downcut bits so you’ll be prepared for any job and any type of wood.

Very nice router bit. Good clean cut. Still has nice edge after a week of intense purfling sessions.

Proper use of 1/32” router bits

By

Verified Buyer


I broke a 1/32” router bit while making grooves for some stringing I’m doing on a side table leg. I went to the StewMac website and saw a video on the proper use of the 1/32” Bit. I had another bit to use but thought it would be wise to order a few more just in case I broke my last bit. But after watching the video and using the suggestions made I was able to finish all my stringing without breaking my last bit. Thanks for your help. Tom

Well priced set of router bits.

By

Verified Buyer


These look good and will work well in my estimation, I have lots of them and this set is of course a spare set, that will be used from time to time, so an immediate review on the quality of the steel will be pending.
