Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BSK 1/4 in. x 1 in. Carbide up spiral router bit
This bit has cut over 30' in cherry wood so far and has performed without burning and left a smooth finish. The bit is easy to guide and does not chatter.

I do a lot of detail work and this thing cuts beautifully, easy to control, clean cut and doesn't seem to stop cutting perfectly. I love this product and all of the diablo cutting tools.

Had previously drilled holes for several
Mortises when i purchased this bit. Used it to clean out the holes. Worked great with no burning. Will wait to see how it works on my plunge router.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ElizabethGreene Works for CNC Milling Acrylic
I am using this to Mill Acrylic (Plexiglass) in a CNC mill with compressed air cooling. It works for edge and plunge cutting and does not chatter like a straight cutter. The upswept spiral moves the swarf out of the slots so it doesn't melt back together.
I would purchase this again, and I would like to purchase it in smaller diameters too.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Carpenter Diablo 1/4 in. x 1 in. Carbide Up Spiral
The solid carbide bit is very brittle. Much more versatile if the bit were carbide tipped steel. I bought 3 just in case for a project, and immediately snapped two off...then had to make many repetative cuts to make the last one work for the job...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ssilvestri Great Bit for Mortising!
I purchased this bit at my local Home Depot. Was starting a project building a bookcase with floating mortise and tenon joints. As with every other Freud product that I purchased in the past, this particular bit did not disappoint. Extremely sharp and excellent cutting ability. Made many mortises, cherry, and plywood. I would purchase this again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillOhio Works great - great price.
About half the price of my usual online woodworking supplier. Worked extremely well for putting several long, shallow mortises in pine.
