Product Description
The beautifully crafted dovetail joint is a classic that appeals to both professionals and novices alike. Admired for its attractiveness in box and exposed joint projects, the dovetail is remarkably strong and functional. CMT dovetail bits are designed to fit all popular jigs including Leigh, Keller, JoinTECH and Omnijig systems. You are sure to find the bit you are looking for in our vast selection of cutting sizes and angles. Check the overall length of the bit before placing an order to be sure you get the size you need - CMT makes bits specifically to fit on jigs and routers that require a longer shank length.

Shop tips: two passes are recommended when routing dovetails with a template. Check that the dovetails have been cut through completely and smoothly before removing the workpiece. For even easier routing and less stress on your dovetail bit, run the first pass with a straight bit. Use a dovetail on your router table equipped with a fence to achieve difficult chamfer angles.

Safety tips: if a dovetail bit jams while working, adjust the position of the bit in the collet and make sure the cutting depth is correct. Do not lift the router out of the template.

 

CMT carbide tipped router bits produce flawless profiles due to the following features:

SUPERIOR HIGH STRENGTH STEEL BODIES: CMT uses only high-quality, solid bar stock sourced from Switzerland, which provides exceptional resistance to fatigue and abrasion. Larger diameter bodies are heat forged before turning into precise bit bodies. This extra step produces a radial grain orientation which offers large diameter bits extra strength and durability. All machining fully automated ensuring the shanks and bodies are accurate and perfectly balanced.

ANTI-KICKBACK DESIGN: This design controls the depth of cut and minimizes the chance of kickback, reducing your risk of injury.

SINTERHIP HI-DENSITY INDUSTRIAL CHROME CARBIDE: CMT uses specially formulating chrome carbide specially designed to cut wood and laminates. A new process called SinterHIP (Hot Isostatic Pressing), helps prevent material failure and increases cutting life.

TRI-METAL BRAZING: CMTs silver-copper-silver brazing “sandwich” provides a tight bond between the steel and the carbide, with a shock absorbing effect to protect the carbide tips when cutting harder woods and reduces the chance of failed welds.

NON-STICK ORANGE SHIELD COATING®: Prevents bit from heating up, reduces pitch build-up, protects against corrosion, and provides a longer bit life.

MULTI-AXIS GRINDING CREATES A MIRROR FINISH LASTING 3X LONGER: Sharpening is done to extreme precision on multi-axis CNC machines. Each bevel and angle are ground or sharpened to the micron, to produce a cutting edge that is both razor sharp, yet extremely durable.
