Frequently Asked Questions
Is this router bit compatible with Origin?
Yes, this bit will fit the ¼” collet that is supplied with Origin.
How deep can I cut in one pass?
As a general rule of thumb for cutting wood, it’s best to never cut deeper than the diameter of the bit. So for a ¼” bit, you should not cut deeper than ¼” in a single pass. Because every material is different, it’s best to perform test cuts to find the ideal pass depth and cut specs when working with a new material.
What is the best spindle speed, feed rate, and plunge rate for this router bit?
Will this bit leave tear-out on my material surface?
The up-spiral design pulls material up and out of your cuts. This can leave a little fuzz on the top edge of your material but this is easily removed with a quick rough-up with fine grit sandpaper. Adjacent spoilboards are always recommended when making cuts beyond the edge of your material to reduce tear-out.
How can I maintain my bits?
Resin, sap, and adhesives will build up on your cutter edge over time. This generates more friction on your bit and accelerates edge degradation. Keep your bits clean with a small brass brush, citrus cleaner and a rag.
