Tungsten carbide tips are brazed onto a steel body of TCT router bits. These blades are designed to cut various materials such as natural wood, MDF, plywood, and chipboard. The cutting angles and clearance are designed to leave a perfect finish after the cut or shape the material. Cutters that are over 15.9 millimetres in diameter are made to conform to the European EN847-1/2 safety standard.
The optimum speed that a router bit should be fed into wood will be not so fast that the motor slows down when and not so slow that burn marks are left on the face of the wood after it's been cut. Practice judging the speed by listening to the sound of the motor.
When using a hand-held woodworking router, the direction that you feed the cutter into the wood must always be against the rotation of the cutter to prevent the wood being snatched. This will also ensure that the cutting action pulls the sidefence or the guide bearing into the wood rather than it moving away.
