Default Best Routing Bit for slots

Hi

Only new to using my Dremil and I need to cut some 25mm wide x 40mm long x 5mm deep slots in some Marine Ply. What would be the best Dremel Router bit to use.

Thanks Stephen

HI - Welcome to the forum
I haven't got a dremel, at least not the dremel rotory tool. I believe they are limited to 1/8" shanks though. That would be a lot of passes, even though the slots are relatively small. Maybe just cut the outline with a straight bit to define the sides and remove the bulk of the waste with a chisel. Marine ply is pretty tough stuff, lotsa resins. I think if you try to do the whole thing with dremel bits you will need to buy them by the case. If you have a mate with a router, a 10 or 12 mm bit would make short work of that.
Good Luck

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Send off for the bit set below or I'm sure you can find the Steelex set in AU.

Hmmm, didn't know that existed, Trust BJ
Anyway, it says you need a router base to go with it so you can get this one while your at it

Cost wise, you may be getting close to a proper router though.
