    Hello guys,

    Need Your help for Spoiboard Cutter bit for my C beam.
    The spoilboard is not level and I decided to cut it (MDF) to make it level

    Trying to find the appropriate tool (Cutter bit) for shank 1/4", but everything is super crazy expensive.

    Can somebody advise where to buy may be not top class, but yet acceptable on quality Spoilboard cutter to cut my MDF spoilboard and make it flat.
    SHANK 1/4" or 1/8"

    Thank You in advance
    David

    Micro Fly Cutter

    You'll have to sharpen the cutting bit though, no idea how...

    You're just milling mdf so there is no need to use anything that extreme. Most just use a bottom cleaning router bit. There are plenty out there to choose from in all price ranges so you just need to pick one that meets your price/quality/durability/router speed requirements. Not sure what you have for a spindle but you'll need pick a diameter that works with it. I would suggest avoiding the urge to grab the largest diameter you can find as there is the potential for flexure with a 1/4" shaft. 1" will probably suit your needs.

    I second the "bottom cleaner" end mill. I use a 7/8" (22.225mm) at 2000mm/min with very light passes. I try to remove as little as possible. I would never go over .4mm per pass, but I dont shave more than .5mm unless I really screw something up. After the first pass, the second lighter pass just helps clean up.

    I'd probably drop down to 3/4" (19.05mm) when it comes time to replace. They are dirt cheap at less than $8 (as far as I can remember) and I've had two for years.

    I picked up a 1" cutter at Woodcraft for about 30 bucks and change. It is a Whiteside 1/4" shank.
