Good Morning, all!
So I just recently had a project where I was cutting .050" deep with a .06" upcut bit. I have been slightly cheap/stubborn in not getting more bits that are downcut (I have already spent a bunch of various size bits, all upcut). Well, this project made me frustrated enough with having the burrs around the whole edge that I decided I’m getting more bits to get proper results…
So, doing some searching, I found these on Amazon:
Perfect, a variety pack that’s inexpensive! However, I really wanted downcut bits with the thinking that they will have better results in eliminating the burrs. Does anyone have experience of using both downcut and straight flute? Wondering if the results will be the same, or if downcut will produce a little better results?
Also hoping to hear suggestions on if anyone has found either inexpensive downcut bits I can get separately or in a nice variety pack, like what I had linked… just in downcut?
I am looking for sizes of 1/32, 1/16, 1/8, and 1/4" (Metric equivalents are fine, ex. 1.5mm for 1/16")
Also do not want single flute, preferably 2-flute.
Thanks in advance, everyone!
