Insert spoilboard, surfacing, rabbeting, flycutter, leveler and bed skimming router bits featuring a two-knife design. Engineered with an Amana-exclusive carbide grade for the highest quality of cut, maximum cutting efficiency, and faster material removal process.
These industrial router bits are complete with either two #HMA-12 or two #RCK-344 insert knives, each with four cutting edges that allow users to flip the knife over when one side becomes dull. To cut general purpose material use two (2) #AMA-12 insert knives (not for use on #RC-2242). Amana’s New Radius edge Cutter RC-2242 is best recommended to be used for planning/flattening in surfaces of large solid wood slabs with a handheld router in router sleds.
