Erbauer Straight Router Cutter Â½" Shank 12.7 x 50.8mm
I purchased two of these cutters to cut 12mm deep rebates in softwood. I tried them both and I could not understand why the cutter was slipping and cutting the rebates deeper than I wanted. Also the router was sparking and sounded under load. I decided to purchase a Trend cutter. No problem with that the rebates were the right depth and the router stopped sparking. Do youself a favour dont bother with these!

Does the Job
Bathroom/Kitchen worktops are tough on router bits, best to use once and be sure of a good cut..
This bit cuts well and makes a great joint, using again and expecting to get the same result for another worktop is potentially asking for problems.

Erbauer Straight Router Cutter
Used this cutter for one 5mm deep cut to Maia kitchen worktop. Couldnât do any more with it. Luckily I had Trend cutter in my toolbar and I managed complete the job, which involved few worktop joints. Will never use this brand again.

Cutting worktop joints
Perfectly adequate for use with worktop jigs.
As with any worktop cutter, bear in mind that you can only reliably use it to cut 1, or at most 2, joints before the cutting edges get too dull.
That's why its not cheap to get a tradesman to cut the joints for you.
