- Veritas T-Slot Router Bit 1/2 inch shank, 16J60.71
- Brand: Veritas | Category: Router Accessories
I love this bit, have owned for about a year now and used on several projects. At $22 Canadian I figure I have saved $60 or $70 on buying t-track for my jigs. The bit will cut a slot full depth straight off but I find it best to hog out most of the waste with a 1/4 or 5/16 bit first and then cut the slot. Tend to leave some furry bits on the top of the slot… easily cleaned up with a few strokes with some sand paper. Living way out in the country it also means I can have t-track anytime I want instead of having to wait for delivery.
I have used it to cut slots in Hardwood, Plywood and MDF, it cuts well in all three, just don’t screw things down too hard it the sheet goods or the edges will crush.
All in all this is a great and useful bit for anyone who make their own jigs or is planning to start.
