The Freud 16 560 1/2″ Mortising Bit delivers clean, precise, splinter-free mortises in plywood, veneer, solid wood, or almost any composite material. Most of these bits feature a down shear design that helps eliminate splintering by pushing wood fibers down during the cut. Ideal for mortising hinges and hardware or cutting grooves and dadoes. These bits are designed with deep center gullets for maximum material removal without chip loading. Use in any CNC or portable router.
