Great bit, great value.
I needed a slot cutter for my first attempt at making doors for some very basic built-in cabinets. I looked at the box stores for bits and what limited selection they had was very expensive. I also looked online and most of the bits looked like the quality might be suspect or they were more than I wanted to spend. At Rockler both the price and quality fit what I was looking for. The bit worked great and now I have four cabinet doors ready for hinges.

Quite Impressed
I purchased the FREUD "Slotting Cutter router bit for a project I was doing for one of my granddaughters. I was impressed how easy it was to handle & use not to mention the clean slot in some old barn wood. I give it a five out of five.

Great Product
Product worked as expected. Ball bearing rolls smoothly over the surface for extreme control and precise cut. I would recommend this tool.

Is the depth of cut adjustable?
Ken G on Jun 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sorry to say, but it is a fixed depth. Depth of cut is about 9/16"
How long is the shank?
Jim W on Jan 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 2.375" top to bottom OD about 1.300" top down to the cutter.
is this bit one of a pair for making tongue and groove cuts?
Steve A on Jan 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Used more for just slot cuts. I believe there are paired router bits to do just that, tongue and groove.
What is the bit made of ?
