Item #

Rating:
80% of 100

This straight bit set includes four of the most useful cut diameters of this popular router bit type: 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", and 3/4". They are well suited for joining case goods using dados, grooves and rabbets. Bits are designed to produce up to a 1" cut depth, so they can also be used to cut mortises. These precision balanced router bits are made from top grade carbide and have a baked-on anti-stick coating to reduce pitch and resin buildup. They are suitable for use with a handheld or table-mounted router.

Bits are 1/4" shank.

(1) 1/4" x 1" Straight Bit

(1) 3/8" x 1" Straight Bit

(1) 1/2" x 1" Straight Bit

(1) 3/4" x 1" Straight Bit

Great product
I hadn't used a router for several years, having had poor experiences with the steel cutters available back then (about 35 years ago). The cutters I've used since have completely changed my attitude regarding routers. I now use my router regularly - almost exclusively with Rockler cutters!

They're OK. Discolored some after a couple of minutes in a shallow dado and burned the side of the cut, but seems basically okay.

What do you expect?

These bits dulled quickly in soft clean wood.
Recently bought this set for a tool storage project. Used pine and was terribly disappointed how quickly these bits dulled in such soft wood. Spend a little more and get a quality bit.

I currently have Rhino Gold bit set and most of the straight cut pieces are blunt or damaged(Burnt).<br />This was a good price even with the exchange rate from AUD to USD.

Will this 3/4 cutter cut square slots 3/4 " deep. Building wine rack?
dave b on Aug 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can do that but I wouldn't cut it 3/4" deep with just one pass. The heat build-up with deeper cuts would likely result in the cutter getting a coating which will affect its cutting ability.
