Our production quality spiral bits combine effective chip removal with a continuous shearing action cut not obtained from a standard straight bit. You'll get smoother cutting action with better results. All bits are two-flute, solid carbide. USA
Up-cut Bits provide faster cutting while they pull chips up and out of the work or towards the router. They are excellent bits to use when cutting material in a table mounted router. They hold the work piece to the router. Ideal for mortise and tenon, grooving, slotting or routing deep blind holes.
Down-cut Bits cut slower and push chips away from the router to eliminate top surface splintering. Use for pattern cutting or when going completely through the board as it allows clear vision of the cutting line. Ideal for fine finish work such as veneers, laminates, inlays and repairs because they prevent upper edge tear outs. Use Down-cuts for trimming and sizing.
Spiral Flush Trim Bits have double bearing guides and a specially designed glue reservoir that eliminates glue buildup on ball bearings, resulting in a smoother cut and improved production results. Bits last up to 3 times longer than standard flush trim bits. Bearings will not stop or burn the material.
