This 1-1/2 inch surfacing bit, designed for super-smooth cuts, is used in your CNC router to surface or flatten your CNC router spoilboard (also called a spoiler board, or waste board), as well as slab flattening, and prepping your CNC router project surfaces. The surfacing bit for CNC routers is a super-important bit to have.

The IDC Woodcraft 1.5 inch surfacing bit works with all brand CNC machines with a 1/4" collet.

What makes the 1-1/2" surfacing different? Typical surfacing bits for CNC routers are 1" diameter. They work fine. However, they do take longer to do your surfacing work. With the 1-1/2 inch surfacing bit, and a stepover of 90%, the surface work can be done in half the time, and you'll have a much smoother finish due to the broad cutting area.

What's more significant is the 4-flute design. Most surfacing bits only have three flutes. This allows for better finishes with faster cutting speeds. And more flutes means extended tool life, as well.

This video shows this bit in action. Itis shown a few minutes into he video.

You'll find the surfacing bit is a necessary bit almost immediately after you get your CNC router. This is because most spoil boards (a.k.a waste board or spoiler board) are not parallel to the router motion. So you need a flattening bit to resurface it.

Receiving your new CNC router is exciting. One of the first tasks you will want to do is level up your spoilboard for 2 reasons.

  1. Your projects will cut even.
  2. You won't cut into your spoilboard at high spots.

Spoilboard resurfacing is actually a very common thing that has to be done with new CNC routers, as well and reconditioning the surface after it has been cut into many times.

This 1.5" diameter surfacing bit is made specifically for hobby and semi-professional CNC'ers. It is made to get effective clean-up on your spoilboard in one pass at high feed rates.

Used for flattening spoilboard on new Onefinity

This bit is amazing! After tramming my Makita Router, I put the bit on and went to work flattening the spoilboard. It was incredible how smooth the board came out. Now I have a big apple wood slab I'm looking forward to flattening. I will definitely take it slow on that one. One word of caution: If you have a Suckit Dust Boot, don't forget to remove it before homing the Z axis! The first thing you'll here is plastic cracking. Trust me, you won't like it.

Surfacing bit

This bit is awesome. I have a 1 inch 3 flute that I thought did a nice job surfacing wood but this 1 1/2 inch 4 flute makes the job easier and much smoother. Love it

Good - but left edge marks every pass-

I was hoping for super smooth… I still have edges showing after step over… I would also prefer a 1/2” shank.
