Ultra-Smooth Cut 1" Surfacing Bit For CNC Router Spoilboard & Slab Flattenning, 1/4 Shank
This ultra-smooth cutting 1 inch surfacing bit is built for higher performance than the standard 3-flute 1" surfacing bit you commonly find. Used in your CNC router to surface or flatten your CNC router spoilboard, as well as slab flattening, the modified cutting angles and added 4th flute result in longer life, higher feed rates and, most importantly, superior smoothness.
Made for standard home-based routers
1" diameter, 1/4" shank, carbide tipped

This 1-inch ultra-smooth cut surfacing bit 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.
This particular surfacing bit is a redesign of the traditional surfacing bits you'll find for CNC routers to give you much better performance.
The forward cutting angle is decreased so you can achieve much higher feed rates
The grind angle for both the front and the bottom of the surfacing bit is shallower to increase the life of the bit.
Most important, a 4th flute has been added to achieve a superior smooth cut on the CNC wood project piece.
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.
Your projects will out even.
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" 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.
It cuts good but it burns the hardwood. Softwood is ok.
The 1 inch surfacing bit did everything I was looking for. Great bit and the service was exceptional. You guys make doing business fun!

Haven’t used it you but looks great.
Excellent quality, Excellent smoothness, eats and works like a champ! Makes quick work of flattening with outstanding results! Love IDC Woodcraft bits and the customer service is Awesome! If you haven't tried them.. make them your next set of bits!
Best surfacing bit that I have ever had, have several IDC bits now and once you go to IDC you don't get anything else!
