Shop with Confidence. Our GUARANTEE.

The standard Mica-File bit (#P12-1781) features a specially designed combination angled flush trimmer with a slight beveled edge. This unique bit eliminates the need for hand filing of both vertical and horizontal laminated mica.

Mica-File bit (#P12-1783) features a non-stick Teflon cased square bearing that stops the outside of the bearing from spinning when it touches the laminate thereby eliminating burning.

All bits will fit into any laminate trimmer or smaller router. These bits may look strange, but they work great! All bits two flute, carbide tipped, with bearing guide.

Router Safety Tips:

  • Always wear eye and ear protection.
  • Always use properly sharpened bits.
  • Never use bits that are dull or damaged.
  • Shank must be completely inserted into collet and then backed-off approximately 1/16".
  • Don't "bottom-out" bit in collet.
  • Never partially insert bit into collet. Minimum 1" of shank needs to be in collet.
  • Tighten bit securely and recheck periodically for possible slippage or "run-out" due to wear.
  • Keep collet clean and replace if worn.
  • Never start the router with the bit in contact with wood.
  • Always feed your work or router in the proper direction against the bit rotation.
  • Don't force feed the bit or overload your router, Feed at a constant moving speed to avoid burning the wood.
  • Do not face tool's discharge when operating.
  • Always unplug router when changing bits or making adjustments.
  • Use a router table and fence whenever possible.
  • Make sure your work piece is properly secured and use push blocks, sticks and featherboards whenever possible.
  • Keep all your bits, bearings and assemblies clean, lubricated, and securely fastened. To avoid damage, store them properly in a pouch, box or tray.
  • The bigger the bit, the lower RPM recommended (see chart).
