GodBlessTexas Posted June 28, 2006 Report Share Posted June 28, 2006 In the past, I've used my father-in-laws power tools and whatever bits he had, but now that I have my own router (Hitachi M12VC), I'm interested in what bits are useful for guitar building and what brands are worth the money. In doing some research, I found this article from Fine Woodworking that did a router bit shootout. Granted, it is somewhat limited since they only used 1/2-in.-dia., 1/2-in. shank, double-fluted carbide-tipped straight bits, but it is at least something. I was shocked at the showing done by the Jesada bit, as that's one of the names I knew as high dollar (and supposedly high quality). So, what are some good workhorse bit styles for guitar work, and what manufacturers are you guys using? Also, what types of experience do people have with the bit manufacturers listed? Anything that goes against the article? Thanks in advance. GBT Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
