Q:can you use this to trim or cut plexiglass?
by|May 31, 2021
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  I tried cutting 1/4" Plexiglass with a router to use it as a template and gave up. The bit melts through the Plexiglass and the plastic then wrapped around the bit. Perhaps I moved the router too slowly. Then there were little shards of plastic left on the workbench. These had to be removed to avoid scratching up other work pieces. There must be a better way to cut it but I haven't found it yet. I don't know what bit would make a difference, these being no worse than any other. I have tried cutting Plexiglass on a table saw and band saw and they're okay as long as you need only straight cuts, but it gets real messy with the hot shards (eye protection!). My best results are cutting it using a special tip that fits in a soldering gun or some wood burning tools. Otherwise, these bits perform adequately in wood for any straight bit with its known 1/4" shank limitations. In general, I prefer using 1/2" shanks whenever possible. If your collet choice is only 1/4", these bits will perform. Just make sure that the bit is very tight in the collet and limit the cutting depth to no more than 1/4" per pass with 1/8" even safer.

    Q:Can they be used as dado bits?

    Answer This Question

    A:  You certainly can't use them in a table saw like you would a dado, but you could certainly use them in a router to cut a dado. To cut a very deep dado you might to make several passes.

    A:  Yes, but: These are 1/4" shank bits. If they aren't very, very tight in the collet, then they can migrate out and destroy your work piece. 1/2" shank bits have 4 times the collet surface area and will better tend to stay in the router. In addition, if the bits get a little dull, this is more likely to happen and they can also snap off from the shank. Whenever possible, you will want to use 1/2" shanks. In a pinch, these bits will do.

            A:  Thank you Mge for your inquiry. The RYOBI A25RS51 are designed with a 1/4" shank, we recommend verifying compatibility with your router manufacturer to avoid coverage issues. ~Best Regards, Ashley

            by|Jul 22, 2020

              A:  These bits have the standard 1/4-inch shaft. They will work fine in any router with a collet that accepts 1/4-inch bit shafts (which includes most routers). Even my biggest router which is made for 1/2-inch shaft bits also has an adapter to allow me to use bits with the smaller shafts.These work fine in all three of my routers, none of which are Ryobi brand.

              Was cutting 1/4” slot in poplar using my router table got through four slots and the bit broke inside the chuck. Wasn’t heavy demand work. So if you are looking for inexpensive bits for small projects these may work.

                Absolute garbage
                They are not sharp. I just tried using 2 of them on a piece of white ash, they tore it up. Not in a good way. Dont be tempted by their cheap price. The roundover bit set didnt not exhibit the same issues.

                    I gave this item a 4/5 because after using it twice, the 5/8" bit broke. A portion of the cutting head sheared off while router a 1/4" deep hole in oak. Maybe this was too much for this bit, the 1/2" worked well for the same application. I've used the 5/16" bit (which is the reason I got this kit) to route dado grooves for drawer bottoms in Mahogany and it worked great. The 1/2" bit worked well for routing dado's into oak. The 5/8" bit worked to route a circle into oak (3/4" deep circle with 1/4" passes to achieve final depth) but it failed when I used it to route dado's later on. Overall this is a good kit and a good value. I normally buy Diablo bits but didn't feel like spending the money at the time. I figured I could get the 5/16" bit for what I needed with four extra bits for the price of one diablo, but I broke one already so I guess you get what you pay for.
