I enjoy doing woodworking. I also do some router work for which this bit is excellent when using my superb DeWalt Compact Cordless Trim Router. NOTE: The listing is for either similar bearing top same size Upcut or Downcut bits; this one is clearly marked as a compression bit on the tube & that is what it is... I'm not sure why the mixup but I'm happy with this one!
This is an individually cased solid Tungsten Carbide (TC) bearing topped trim bit with a 1/4th in. Diameter & Shank Spiral Compression Bit. A compression bit is specially designed to prevent tearout at BOTH top and bottom of a wood workpiece for smoother finished surfaces. It needs a bit less feed speed but is great for template following especially when routing laminated wood paneling or thin plywood.
This bit is NOT suitable for plunging as the end is a guide bearing. It is for precise trim work. Though the cutting length is limited to 3/4 inch this bit is an essential one for me as I like routing and woodwork.
I Recommend this SpeTool Compression Cut 1/4 Shank Carbide Flush Trim Router Bit 3/4 inch Cutting Length Spiral Router Bit Woodwork CNC Machining 3D. Excellent unique style router trim bit for me.
I hope youve found the information and my review helpful.
