TCT Router Bits
Each router bit features diamond ground, micro-grain tungsten carbide tipped blades. This tighter micro-grain structure means the blades offer long lasting hardness and superior edge retention. The body of each bit has been turned and then milled with uncompromising precision from a single piece of 4140 high tensile steel to give perfect balance for reduced vibration and therefore smoother cuts. 4140 steel has been chosen because of its toughness, high fatigue strength, and abrasion and impact resistance. The tungsten carbide tips are then brazed onto the bodies using induction to create an extremely strong joint that safely holds under the high stresses that occur when routing. The router bits are suitable for use on softwoods, hardwoods, veneers, laminates and composite materials.

Lapped Mitre Bits
This 2 piece lapped mitre router bit set has been designed to create strong and attractive joints in plywood and MDF but can also be used on softwoods and hardwoods. Conventional lock mitre bits create profiles with delicate fingers that can easily break when working with materials such as plywood and MDF. These lapped mitre bits work well with these materials as they produce a simple self-aligning joint with plenty of surface area for gluing. This set contains a half lap profile and a 45° mitre profile which combine to produce a secure joint that hides the edges of the plywood or MDF. Minimum wood thickness for these bits is 12.7mm and the maximum wood thickness is 19.1mm and they are designed for router table use only. Shanks are 1/2".

Superior Finish and Performance
The shearing angle of the cutting edges ensure they remain in constant contact with the workpiece to allow a smoother, slicing cut which eliminates tear-out and gives a mirror finish. The bits feature right hook angles which further enhances the cut due to the fast removal of chips. These bits feature an anti-kickback design which limits the feed rate of the material being cut to decrease the likelihood of a kickback, meaning each bit conforms to strict German DIN standards to ensure maximum operator safety. ©

Thoroughly impressed

Cheap bits tend to tear the wood & blunt quickly. These on the other hand have kept an ultra sharp edge & given me a beautifully clean cut - no burn marks & very little sanding required, if any at all. Thoroughly impressed.

Rutlands - my go to place for router bits

Tried many brands over the years, but happy to say I now won't go anywhere else for router bits. I've thrown everything at them, including the hardest walnut and ash, and they continue to impress with the quality of finish left behind. If you're serious about routing then investing in quality bits is a must.

Well packaged & presented

Well packaged & presented, and most importantly, with me the next day. As for the results, I'm very pleased so far & have managed to find profiles not offered by other suppliers. Will no doubt be back for more.

Great router bits if you need to create concealed ...

Great router bits if you need to create concealed mitre joints in plywood. The bits allow you create simple profiles that will not break, which are perfectly matching. As usual the quality of Rutlands router bits is suburb.

Lapped mitre set

So far so good. Only used on a couple of projects to date with excellent results but can’t yet comment on longevity. Bit of a learning curve getting them set up. Would give them 5 stars if they came with setup blocks.
