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.

To read more about what a spoilboard is, read this article or watch this video about surfacing bit feeds and speeds, or this video about how a surfacing flattening bit can be used.

A 1.5” Surfacing Beast!

I am loving the 1.5” surfacing bit! I have the 1”, but needed to start getting these jobs done a bit quicker. Upgrading to the 1.5” surfacing bit was a big step. I also purchased “The Beast” bit IDC released a while back…WOW!!!

Cutter quickly makes work surface flat!

An absolute necessity, a CNC operation should have this surfacing bit handy, at all times. It has multiple uses, from flattening your spoil board, to providing a good, flat surface an a workplace, making your carve program, or delicate detail, much more precise because you start with a trued surface that is absolutely flat and smooth. I have several in my cutter drawer and you should too!

1.5" Surfacing bit

The 1.5" IDC surfacing bit was fantastic and performed as perfectly as advertised. It is so quiet and the finish was a smooth as a babies butt. I highly recommend this bit.
