This dovetail bit is 15.9mm (5/8”) in diameter with a 14° cutting angle. It is perfect for half blind dovetails in timber 19mm (3/4") to 32mm (1-1/4") thick. Thinner timbers will require the 818-142-11B bit with the same angle, but a much shallower cut (which leaves the bearing still in contact with the jig).

Shop tips: The first initial cut should be made to remove the bulk of the waste, with a second pass made to ensure all the intended material is removed. Many jigs work in a way that the bit cannot be seen as the cut is being made, so it is easy to miss material. Before removing the workpiece, check to make sure the cut has been completed.

Due to the profile of the bit, it is captive within the material, so is under a great deal of stress, especially when doing sliding dovetails. To reduce the amount of stress, removing a bulk of the waste using a straight bit or even saw blade on a tablesaw will reduce the amount of material that the router bit needs to remove.

Safety tips: As the bit is captive within the timber, it needs to slide into and out of the timber in the same way. It should not be lifted out of a cut until it is free of the workpiece and jig, and only when the router has come to a complete stop.

Use with our CT-DTJ300 blind dovetail jig as well as our older models, WDV-1N and WDV-2.
