Freud® Carbide Up-Spiral Router Bits - 1/2" Shank

Item #
GRP18734
Rating:
94% of 100
Upward spiral is perfect for ejecting chips from mortises. It's also the ideal bit for pattern routing because when using a guide bushing the best face goes down and templates are attached to the top side. 1/2" shank.

Application: Cutting mortises and routing deep blind holes

  • Freud's solid carbide up spiral bits combine effective chip removal with a cut that can't be matched by standard straight bits. Ideal for production settings.
  • Excellent for grooves and dadoes in all composite materials, plywoods, hardwoods and softwoods.
  • Use on CNC and other automatic routers as well as hand-held and table-mounted portable routers.

Spectacular performance.
I had to rout 30 8" circles in MDF for a fund raiser. (table decorations.) I tried a straight bit. Overheated and very slow This worked wonderfully. Clean cuts. No overheating. Edges didn't even require touch-up sanding.

Good bit that makes clean cuts
It performed well when cutting 1.5" deep mortices in hard maple. Chip removal was good and left clean cuts.

extremely happy
cuts like a hot knife! couldn't be happier. I cut a large diameter hole through 1 3/4" maple butcher block. After 3 passes the surface was as smooth as glass.

Great results, smooth precise cuts..
Using the Rockler Router Table Box Joint Jig and the 1/2 Carbide up Spiral router bit made my second attempt at making box joints a very enjoyable experience.

My first attempt was a $14.95 router bit that made disastrous shattering cuts, leaving the piece of wood looking nothing like a box joint but a toothless pumpkin smile.

This bit is worth every cent.

What is the overall length of the 1/2" D x 2" H x 1/2" Shank Freud #75-109?
Mark H on Nov 21, 2017
Which do I use in a router table an up cut or down cut spiral bit mainly for cutting mortises?
James E M on Mar 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends on what you are trying to do. If its critical to have a real smooth edge to the cut, use a down spiral bit. If its important to clean out the cut as you work, an up spiral bit.
