Freud's solid carbide 1/4" two-flute down spiral router bit is ideal for smooth, chip-free routing where chip removal is not a problem. The downward spiral forces the chips down into the groove, eliminating the tendency for wood fibres to chip out the face. Ideal for grooves and dadoes in single-sided veneers and laminates. Cuts composite materials such as plywood, hardwoods and softwoods. Can be used with CNC and other automatic routers, as well as hand-held and table-mounted portable routers. The router bit has an Anti-kickback design for safety. Each router bit is computer balanced for vibration-free operation and covered by Freud's limited lifetime warranty.
