Using Spiral Bits In a Table
When using spiral bits in a table cutting box joints with a jig or just simple slots which type is best? Up cut or down cut, or will either work as well as the other? I want to order 3 different sizes, but really don't have the funds to order all 3 of each kind. I am going to order the Woodhaven Box Joint Jig today and at the same time order the bits also. Having said that as a way to conserve my funds will a straight bit work to cut the box joints? I understand they won't cut as well as a spiral bit, but if I can get by for a few weeks with my straight bits I will do so.
As usual all input is appreciated,
