This kit includes:
1/32” upcut fishtail bit – This fine-detail bit is an excellent choice for carving intricate details on softer materials.
1/16” upcut fishtail bit – A great middle-of-the-road choice for complex designs requiring more detail than ⅛” bits but a quicker carve time than 1/32” bits.
1/8” 2-flute straight cut bit – Straight bits have vertical flutes that don’t pull the material up or down. They are ideal for cutting materials that splinter easily, like plywood.
1/8” spiral upcut bit – Upcut bits pull chips up and away from the material. They leave a rougher finish at the top, but a smooth finish at the bottom of a pocket.
