Decent router bit's for kitchen worktop cutout

Postby Meccarroll » Thu Aug 23, 2018 6:19 pm

Hi all, just wondered which router bit you would suggest for kitchen worktop mitres? Don't do a lot of this myself but have been asked to do some for a friend so wondered which brand is best to buy. I have heard the bit's don't last too long but not sure myself so how many cuts (joint's) should I expect from one cutter?

Cheers.

I've got a versofix cutter from Wealden Tools which is initially expensive but in the long term is probably more cost effective. I think it is recommended to use a new cutter for every couple of mitres.

Same as Steve and I like buying from Wealden tools as they are fairly local to me and give a decent service.

Many thank's for the replies chaps, as mentioned, they seem a bit expensive at first glance but I expect would work out a practical buy for long term use. Thank you for the advice, much appreciated.
