Whiteside Machine Company began manufacturing router bits for the thriving furniture industry that existed in Hickory, NC. Through word of mouth, hard work and a focus on quality, Whiteside's product line evolved and expanded to supply businesses and hobbyists throughout the United States. Made from high quality steel and tipped with micro-grain carbide, Whiteside's years of experience provides you with a full line of router bits for your workshop.
Spiral router bits were originally designed for the CNC industry as a tool for long-life under intense woking conditions. As spirals became popular with the everyday woodworker and craftsman, an increase in demand was seen throughout the industry. Whiteside offers a variety of spirals in up-cut, down-cut, and compression flute configurations. Whiteside recommends up-cut spirals for best control of your router and ejecting chips up and out of your dado cuts. Down-cuts provide superb control of fraying on the surface nearest the router while preventing the tendency to lift small workpieces. Compression spirals have up and down flutes to maintain the cleanest cut on both the top and bottom of the workpiece. Whiteside increases the life and value of your spiral selection by offering these bits in a solid carbide form.
