This range of Festool spiral cutters in HSS is suitable for many applications. Spiral cutters offer a superior finish with higher possible feed rates due to excellent chip clearance. Twin flutes ground around the body of a spiral bit help eliminate vibration by spreading the cutting action over a longer edge. With their drill-like points, spiral upcut bits are also better for plunge cuts, decreasing the likelihood of burning the work.

SuperbIt strikes me that I may be a bit sad to get enthusiastic over a router bit. But I am! I got the 10mm diameter bit. I have quite a few router bits but this is the first solid carbide spiral bit I have purchased. My primary reason for getting this bit was for making floating tenon joints but thought I would testify by making a router bowl out of oak. The cutting speed and finish is just better than any other bit I own. The bits are not cheap but they are worth it!!!
