The 1/4" down-cutting bit (a.k.a. down bit, down cut bit, downcut bit) is the workhorse of CNC router bits! You will almost always make this the first on your machine. Why?

2 reasons...

  1. The 1/4" down bit removes the bulk of the material in pockets and around letters.
  2. It does all the cutout work for finished projects.

A third reason is, most CNC routers are set up for 1/4" bits, so it is the reasonable go-to for your work. This is why it is standard practice to have two 1/4" down-cutting router bits in the rack.

For these reasons, you want to make sure your 1/4" down cutter is made right & built to last. That's why these are made above industry standards and 100% tungsten carbide.

Carbide is what professional metal machinists use to make complex items like car engines. It stays sharp 50x longer than conventional CNC router bits.

Great bit

Thus is my go-to bit for most projects. Cuts clean and stays sharp.

Great tool, a must have!

If you want to limit tear out & splintering during a cutout, this is the bit to have! The folks at IDC have created a tool data base. Download and use that to set up the feeds and speeds when running this bit and you'll be amazed how nice it cuts.
