Product Overview

This biscuit Router bit cuts a slot 5/32 in. thick x 1/2 in. D for #20 biscuits. The shank is 1/4 in. Biscuit joints provide a fast and easy way to join cabinet parts and furniture components. Simple butt joints often do not provide the necessary strength for common scenarios. Biscuit joints provide added glue surface and extra structural strength where the biscuits are inserted and glued. Even if you don't own a biscuit joiner, you can produce accurate joints with our biscuit joint slot cutting router bits. Select the desired bit based on the biscuit size you wish to use (#0, #10 or #20).
  • Create extremely strong biscuit glue joints
  • Premium C3 micro-grain tungsten carbide blades for a sharper and longer lasting edge
  • For use on table mount and handheld router
  • Silver induction brazing for maximum strength and durability
  • Manufactured with anti-kickback design to help prevent workshop mishaps

If you only need to do a few biscuits this tool works well. Because there is no jig to hold it steady the slots may be a little loose but are still acceptabl. I used it to join pine boards to the edge of plywood to conciel the plys with good results. I would recommend this if you do not want to invest in an expensive biscuit cutter.

I used this to cut biscuit slots for Z-clips that would hold a desktop to the frame of the desk. I only needed to cut 16 slots and did not want to buy a biscuit cutter yet. This was the perfect solution, as other reviewers have said. The biscuit slots were thicker than the Z-clips, but, by carefully adjusting the depth of the router, the clips hit the top of the slots so there was no slack to allow the desktop to feel loose. In other words, it worked perfectly with a careful depth setting. I was cutting the slots into 3/4" cabinet-grade plywood with a very thin birch veneer layer on both sides. On about four of the 16 slots there was some minor tear-out of the veneer layer on the 'exit' side of the cut, but it was not enough to be a problem. Most biscuit slots by definition are cut where you don't see them, in which case this would not be an issue at all. I am glad I chose this option and can easily recommend it.

Didn't use it for it's intended purpose, but it worked very well. In doing some custom deck work, we needed to create a detail on the steps and the router bit came in handy to slot some edges.

Slot cutter worked exactly as described and expected. I don't do much joining and didn't want to spend the $200 to buy a biscuit cutter. This cutter worked so well that I'm trying to think of more projects/uses for it. Highly recommended for people that don't do a lot of joining.

That tool is outstanding. Although it can be used in a portable router, it is much better suited for use in a table router.
