Hi Tim
What ever the job calls for
The one I like the best is the
1/2" Spiral


1. to be the stronger or leading element or force.
2. to have numerical superiority or advantage: The radicals predominate in the new legislature.
3. to surpass others in authority or influence; be preeminent: He predominated in the political scene.
4. to have or exert controlling power (often fol. by over): Good sense predominated over the impulse to fight.
5. to appear more noticeable or imposing than something else:

If there is an option, I prefer 1/2 in shank router bits.
