Specialty Router Bits for Flute Makers

Premium Router Bits

After making a lot of Native American Styled flutes over the past years we have gone through a lot of different tools to get the job done.  One of most critical parts of your flute is the interior components which are made up of the Flute Bore, the Slow Air Chamber and the Blow Hole.  For those of you who use a router to complete these parts of your flute you will want to use the best router bits you can in order to have clean true channels.

We have achieved the best results using the Katana Premium Router Bits in the crafting of our flutes.  We like them so much that we now carry them for our customers.  We stock ready to ship the most common sizes flute makers are using.  For the flute bore we use on a daily basis 3/4″, 7/8″ and 1″ Core Box bits. The standard for carving the blowhole is a 3/8″ round nose bit and for those who craft their Windway or Focusing Channels into the body of the flute we like the straight plunge Cut bits.

In our shop we use these bits every day for boring the interior portion of the flute body prior to glue up. These bits have markings on the shaft of the bit for safety.  As long as you set the bit to at least the first or second mark your bit should be secure in your router. These bits stay sharp for a very long time as long as you make sure there are no metal items in your wood.

The shank sizes on these bits are generally 1/2″ thick which greatly reduces vibration in your router.  All prices are +Shipping at checkout.  If you have questions please call or send us an email.
