fantastic value on high quality router bits. These bits are
competitively priced while offering high performance and long
performance features include:
you are not 100% satisfied with these bits, send them back for
and K20 grade carbide for clean cutting action.
sharpening with 600 - 800 grit diamond wheels.
balanced for smooth operation.
anti-stick coating to reduce pitch and resin buildup.
It's easy to prevent mishaps if you take a few simple precautions.
1) Rockler recommends using 1/2'' shank router bits whenever possible.
1/2'' shanks provide better stability with less vibration to produce a smoother
cut and longer cutter life.
2) Make multiple light passes rather than one heavy cut.
3) Install your router bit so that 90% of the shank is inside the
collet. Here's a rule of thumb: fully insert the bit, then pull it back
1/16 to 1/8 of an inch.
4) Use a router table whenever possible.
5) When using large diameter bits, reduce the RPM of your router.
Then test your set-up on scrap lumber.
6) Always follow your router manufacturer's recommendations.

One thing to note on this bit. You must use a separate straight bit to cut a grove and then use this bit to cut the T. I thought this bit would cut it all at once but that is not the case.

When I got the product it was something I found to be the wrong size and something that wouldn't work with the project I was doing. Not the fault of the item just the size of the item. Will still order from Rockler if there is something else I find I need that they have.

I was able to make my feather boards adjustable in two directions on my MDF table saw fence,and plan to do the same to my router table fence.Once the 3/8 slot was cut to depth the "T" slot was a snap.

You do have to make two passes: the first pass with a 3/8" straight cutter and then use this bit for the second cut. Otherwise it would be too much material to try and remove with just one pass and it might burn the bit. I would NOT recommend free-handing the cuts.

Works as advertised. I use my dado set for the 3/8 channel first and then clean up with this bit. Very sharp like my other Rockler bits.

We used this T-Slot bit on two NYW router tables. One on MDF and the other on laminate faced particle board.
It worked very well on both.

Versatile, customizable, essential--for all routing, jigs, and other router needs when in a pinch. I used it to make an index rotatin gauge with incremental stops especially tor a fluting bit to make a column to fit in front of an entertainment center.
