Quality Router Bits Can Stand up to a Tough Job
When working on a project, it’s important to know about the router bits that you are working with as well as the material you are routing with them. For example, wood router bits aren’t just made out of any steel; they are made from the finest carbides and steels that will allow them to last for the longest amount of time possible while producing high quality work. Plastic router bits, on the other hand, are mad from solid carbide and are carbide tipped, which ensures a high level of productivity and creates the best possible finish every time.
When it comes to creating wood router bits, high speed steel is used because it performs very well when used in hand routing applications, which needs a tough core that will prevent against tool breakage. And since hand tools are one of the most common method for wood routing, it’s important that the router bits are able to with stand plenty of pressure, ensuring safety for the user. Wood router bits are usually carbide tips, and because of this are able to be used for routing on both composite and hard woods.
Like the wood router bits, plastic router bits are also made out of high speed steel. The wood router bits are used on acrylic countertops, where they are used at the time of installation to make sure everything looks correct. Because the router bits are made out of the high speed steal, the versatile material allows the router bits to be used on hard materials like aluminum. Like the wood router bits, plastic router bits are carbide tipped, and are used against abrasive and composite plastics. This allows the router bits to be able to stand up to tough jobs, even if it means they are limited by their shape every once in a while.
