A slotting and grooving router bit is a cutting tool used in woodworking to create a groove or slot on a workpiece. The cutter has a flat bottom cutting surface that allows it to remove material in a straight line, creating a precise and consistent cut.
Slotting and grooving router bits come in a variety of sizes and shapes, with different widths and depths of cut. They can be used to create grooves for inserting panels or decorative accents on cabinet doors or other woodworking projects. They can also be used for joinery, such as creating slots for biscuit or spline joints.
When using a slotting and grooving router bit, it's important to take proper safety precautions, such as wearing eye and ear protection and using a secure surface to hold the workpiece. It's also important to use the proper technique to ensure that the cut is consistent and even along the entire length of the workpiece. Taking multiple passes with the router and adjusting the depth of cut can help achieve a clean and precise cut. A featherboard can also help keep the workpiece securely in place while cutting.
