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.

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!!!!

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'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!

I use these bits for router inlays done in wood. Work very well and are nice and sharp out of the box. I tend to make more sawdust than finished product but these bits are excellent quality and hold up well thanks to being carbide. Slice through hard maple, ebony and any other hardwood I've put them to with no issues. I use this size for the "larger" sections of material removal and the smaller 1/16" for detail work; both hold up fine and work exactly as they should.

Style Name: 20mm Diameter by 3/4-Inch Double Flute Straight Router Bit with 1/4-Inch Shank Verified Purchase
I clamped a 1/8" pegboard covering my table for pattern, a 1/8" pegboard piece screwed to my router for jig and left 1/4" on the bit shaft. I drilled all the holes in my 3/4" plywood table top with no problems.

I used 8 wooden dowels to line up the holes of the 2 pegboards and clamped the boards tight before drilling.

The holes are perfectly square and I can trust them to work with my stuff. The holes are not 96mm apart like on my festool table but for my purpose it's fine.

The bit is quite dirty but cleaned well and even if it was trash I'd still be quite happy to finally get a festool top on my big workbench.
