Slot Cutter Size
« on: February 01, 2017, 04:57:13 am »
If my side panels are 12mm thick.
Is it feasable to cut a slot in it for T-Moulding?
Or will it be too weak then?

The image of the T-Moulding I think I need is below.
I presume I need a half inch T-Moulding.
It says 1/16 slot needs to be cut.
So do I need to get a 1.5mm slot cutter bit for my router?

Whatthewhat?

12 mm (1/2) is pretty thin for side panels.  Is this for a full-size cabinet or a bar topper?

It is for a bartop cabinet

I cut slots in my bartops, 1/2" material.  I would recommend finding a 1/16" slot cutter, as 1.5mm is a little too small and the barb may cause your material to crack.

Yeah a 1/16" slot cutter is what I was thinking of using
