Slot-Cutting Router Bits

DeckWise® Slot Cutting Bit

4-Wing Slot Cutter Bits

DeckWise® Router Bits have been specifically designed to create a perfectly symmetrical groove to accept our invisible terrace fixings. The 4-wing design provides a smooth cut for creating slots and grooves in decking material including exotic hardwoods, thermally treated softwoods, and composites. Two sizes are available and fit most common router devices.

Step 3: Cut Slots in Deck Board

Place the baseplate on the edge of the board so the router bit is in position. Turn on router and grasp the router with both hands. Do not allow the bit to come in contact with the wood until the router is up to full speed. Moving from left to right, plunge the cutting bit in the side of the deck board above each joist and cut.

Step 2: Align Deck Board

Attach the fence guide to the router table to keep deck board straight. Clamp featherboards to the table and the fence to keep the decking snug against the fence and to help resist kickback.

Step 3: Groove Deck Board

Turn on router. Hold deck board firmly against the fence and push past the bit moving from right to left. Use push sticks or pads to keep your hands away from the bit. Turn off the router when entire board is grooved.

Tip: To avoid burn marks from the router bit, feed the board at a steady rate without stopping. The rate of feed depends on the bit and type of hardwood.

Step 4: Fit Fixing in Deck Board Groove

The DeckWise® invisible terrace fixing should slide into the groove with the legs flush against the deck board. Make sure the top of the clip is level in the groove.

Symmetrical Grooves

The symmetrical groove profile allows boards to be reversed and/or flipped to put the best side up. Whether using pre-grooved deck boards or cutting groove slots on the job, the DeckWise® Hidden Deck Fastener Clip fits perfectly within the edge groove and allows just the right amount of tolerance for an easy installation.
