View Full Version : Quieter Router bits for Jasper Jig?

10-30-2013, 11:30 AM
I was wondering if they make less noisy router bits. It is super loud when I'm cutting a circle. I heard Whiteside router bits make less noise? Jigsaw is quiet but I'd rather use the Jasper Jig. Any suggestions?

noise is more related to the sharpness of the bit. if you notice that when you get a new bit it's usually quieter than your old bit. sounds like you just need a new bit. the higher end bits are usually more sharp than their cheaper counterparts.

spiral upbitRight on. Spiral upcut bit.

Other than that, your bearings could be shot, that's usually pretty loud.

x3 on spiral upcut bit and do 1/8" passes. Router speed might be too high, either way wear hearing protection as the high pitched noise isn't good for your ears...
