    Hello all…

    I just need a bit of help to choose the right bit for my Festool hand router

    the materials I need to rebate are 5 & 3 mm thickness of Acrylic and I need to rebate by 1 & 2mm deep and 1 & 2mm into from the edges

    what would be the best router bit to use for that purpose, please?

    Also, I need a basic router table if you have any recommendation for that as well!

    I’d appreciate your help and advice

    Hi Mohsen

    We have the Festool, but not a Festool router, but do have a CNC router.
    I would say a flat head router bit if you are just trying to create a “step” type rebate on the acrylic.

    You would use the guide to do this, rather than a bit with the wheel tip on it.
