Good quality & great value

" Good quality & great value cutter. Cuts cleanly and quickly with virtually no burring.
These are my first choice to purchase every time I'm cutting worktop joints.

Great cutter
16 Jun 2015
By
, Leicester
" These erbauer router cutters are fantastic value, I've done two kitchen joints in laminate, and then four cuts in a solid oak top,the cutter it's self is still cutting great,no problems at all, a trend cutter costing twice as much is not worth purchasing when you get this kind of performance from the erbauer range "

Good value, excellent quality
15 Jan 2015
By
, Stockport
" At this price there's no point in getting router bits resharpened. Excellent value for under a tenner, but well made and long lasting staying sharp for a good long while - not what you'd expect at this price.
Good performance with minimal burning or overheating, will do 40mm in two passes if you're heavy handed, or take your time with half a dozen passes and get beautiful results with zero - and I mean ZERO - chipping of the laminate.

Does the Job
15 Jun 2014
By
, Near Stafford
" 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.

Cutting worktop joints
3 Sep 2011
By
, Essex
" 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.

Resonably Priced Router Cutter
27 May 2016
By
, Lincoln
" I bought this cutter because of the price difference between it and the Trend equivalent - bit of a risk as I know that Trend products are, usually, good quality tools. So far I have no complaints with this cutter but, to date, I have not used it as much as intended. Time will tell on its durability and reliability. "

" A budget cutter, but needed it for machining a kitchen worktop. Took it in its stride, with a lovely clean cut and no chipping of the laminate. Can't say how long it will keep its edge, but working fine at the moment. "

Budget Quality
2 May 2015
By
, Lydd
" Good quality for this price. Its not worth resharpening bits when you can buy these.
Used this for cutting oak worktops and managed quite a few with no loss of performance before hitting a metal fixing which managed to break the fine adjuster on the router, only took a small chunk out of the bit.

worth every penny

" I was put of buying this product by it's price, but after purchasing it I do not know how I managed without it. It edges thick boards and worktops with ease and saves making several passes at varying router depths. I have not rated it's reliability accuratly as I have not used enough as yet! "

Rubish Cutters
11 Nov 2014
By
, Watford
" 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! "

" Used this cutter for one 5mm deep cut to Maia kitchen worktop. Couldn’t 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. "
