I am using this for string inlay. For that purpose, it works great. I am only cutting 3/32" deep, so I don't anticipate any problem with the tip breaking. So far, so good.

This is a good, durable bit. I am routing plastic with it. It's good for that and was durable. It lasted until I hit it accidentally with another tool. I am buying more.

Hi - I have been using these 1/16" bits for routing scroll saw patterns on a CNC gantry router that I built myself. These are very durable and last quite a long time. Great product!!!!

I used a CNC router to engrave my grandsons name onto a memory box I made him for Christmas. The Freud bit cut through the waves and flecks of quartersawn white oak with out any tearing or chipping on any edge. Perfect results.

Style Name: 3/32-Inch Diameter by 3/8-Inch Double Flute Straight Router Bit with 1/4-Inch Shank Verified Purchase
I ordered this bit for a defined purpose, namely, setting commonly-available sheet glass from a big-box store into the oak sides of a display case my father and I have been constructing to house some of his scale models. This was the fifth case we had built, and up to this point we had been using a .125" single-flute bit (the only thing available in town near correct size) and just putting up with the large amount of play between the glass thickness and the groove width. Shims were required to prevent rattle when the case was assembled, and we wished to avoid that on the fifth case.

I was somewhat apprehensive when I ordered this bit, the intended groove depth was very nearly the full depth of the cutter (3/8"), and as a multiple of cutter diameter is fully 4D deep. That seemed quite extreme to me, and I was very worried about the bit's durability in use. As it turns out, my concerns were entirely unfounded. This solid-carbide, Freud Industrial bit sliced through the oak like BUTTER. I made my deepest cuts in two passes, approximately 3/16" deep per pass, and I could hardly even feel the bit in the cut, the action was so smooth. The case required a finished length of 176" of cut, about a quarter of that 3/8" deep, and the rest about 1/4" deep. At the end of the project, inspection under a 30X scope showed no sign of damage to the bit what-so-ever. Tips were still crisp, edges were still sharp, no sign of heating, etc. This bit will be good for many more uses.

I will definitely be looking at the Freud line of bits additionally, this one performed far above even my most optimistic predictions.

I bought a piece of 1/4" birch plywood from the big orange hardware store for the center panel of a door on an entertainment center I am building. When I went to route out a slot in the styles and rails of the door for this center panel, I was surprised to find out that my undersized router bit (7/32") was far too large. What I discovered was that the Home Depot 1/4" plywood is actually labeled as 5.2mm and this 5.2mm ply is actually right on 5mm thick. This metric router bit created the perfect size slot for my center panel and saved me from having to buy a different thickness plywood at a more expensive wood store. Can't beat the price from Amazon either.

I've built a cnc router table for hobby projects. I power the cutting device with a Porter Cable router. I bought this bit and another from Freud to cut MDF parts and solid-wood gifts. This bit has performed perfectly in solid-oak, mdf, and even nylon sheets! I recommend this bit quite highly!

I did have issues with the first one. I'm not certain whether or not it was damaged in shipping, or broken on my end, but the first of these broke. For the record, I have no complaints given that 1/16" is a very, very small bit!

a good choice for a router bit that I use for routing inlays on wood. The quality is good, the item was received quickly and I would recommend it to others wishing to purchase this size bit.
