What Bit would you use for jointing I've seen the tip for today I did jointing with a 1/2" shank 1 1/2" straight bit is that good or is there a better way to joint the wood with a better bit besides a straight or spiral bit just wondering. :eek:

You can expect better cuts from bits that have a shear cutting edge such as the spiral bit or down shear flush trim bits. The cutter have a "twist" to the cutting edge.

I use straight bits myself as the spiral ones over here are a tad pricey for me but I concur with reible as to the shear cutting edge.
