Porter Cable Straight & Mortising
About Porter-Cable Straight and Mortising Bits
Router bits create a hollow area (called a rout) in wood, plastic, or other hard material. They’re a specialized component because the type of rout created depends on the style of the bit used.
Straight and mortising bits are two common types. A straight bit cuts directly down to form a groove or hollow. A mortising bit cuts corners into wood to allow a mortise and tenon joint. You’ll find these bits used most often in woodworking, although they can also cut into plastic.
Porter-Cable offers a full selection of straight and mortising router bits. For over 100 years, they’ve remained an industry leader with an eye on precision and innovation.
