The 1/4″ down-cutting bit (a.k.a. down bit, down cut bit, downcut bit) is the workhorse of CNC router bits! You will almost always make this the first on your machine. Why?
- The 1/4″ down bit removes the bulk of the material in pockets and around letters.
- It does all the cutout work for finished projects.
A third reason is, most CNC routers are set up for 1/4″ bits, so it is the reasonable go-to for your work. This is why it is standard practice to have two 1/4″ down-cutting router bits in the rack.
For these reasons, you want to make sure your 1/4″ down cutter is made right & built to last. That’s why these are made above industry standards and 100% tungsten carbide.
Carbide is what professional metal machinists use to make complex items like car engines. It stays sharp 50x longer than conventional CNC router bits.
