Product Details

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.

Drawer Lock Bits
Drawer lock bits are chosen for their speed and simplicity when joining drawer fronts to sides. These bits create an incredibly strong joint with increased surface area for glue application. The wedge-shaped tenons produced will self-align the workpieces for strong, perfectly fitting and attractive joints. To create a drawer lock joint, cut the drawer front flat on the router table with the outside facing upwards. The drawer side is then cut vertically, with the inside facing the fence. Minimum wood thickness for these bits is 12mm. For router table use only.

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. Each router bit features a lifetime warranty, if any bit fails due to a materials or manufacturing defect it will be replaced free of charge. ©

Mr Edgar

This router bit sped up my drawer assembly process, it was very easy to work with. I made my own set up jig which to help even further

David Wiggles

The bit is good quality and works as expected to create strong and secure joints with a neat finish. I only purchased the smaller size because my drawers were not very big, if I ever have a project that requires larger drawers I will be sure to buy the larger bit from Rutlands

Mark Webster

I have the TR430, which has been excellent for making drawers with 10mm or larger thicknesses. It needs a few goes to get a perfect fit, so make sure you have plenty of scraps of the same thickness. Once set, it is a very quick, accurate and strong way to build drawers. I made two chests of drawers with this bit, with 8 drawers in total and it took no more than an hour on the router table to get all the joints cut. The quality of the router bit is excellent , with no noticeable decline in performance during my use. Highly recommended.
