Wildwood Hi Fraggle, and welcome to the forum. Some years ago I had to cut out an elaborate scene in 12mm yellowwood, a local wood that's not very hard. I used a jig-saw with a scroll blade to rough it out, and then a Dremel Trio (which is something like a small router) with an 1/8" solid carbide bit to get more detail - it was very hard going trying to control the direction of the Dremel, and I had to take small bites at a time - I eventually got a reasonable result, but not without a lot of aggravation. 3/4" MDF would have probably broken the solid carbide bit.

Fraggle That's a possibility Andy. Thanks.

AndyL Maybe it's something like one of these Dremel cutting bits, if the router has a 1/8" collet.
But like Pat said, the dust problem is going to be pretty bad.

Fraggle Just from looking at the picture the cut line only looks to be about 1/8" thick. Not 1/4". Just wondering what kind of bit they used.

Quillman Forget it. No way will that little trimmer cut through MDF with any cutter.
A plunge trimmer (compact) will do it in stages but not one pass.
A cutter as skinny as 1/4" will do it in stages, say 4/1/4".
You will have the mess of the century without perfect dust pickup.

Fraggle Yes taking full cut.

Hello, I am trying to figure out what type of router bit can cut out projects in mdf. I will attach a picture that i have found online but can't figure out what type of bit the person is using.
