    1/4" dia. 1" length usually as most of my jigs are calibrated to a 1/4" bit. I hate math

    1/4" spiral upcut is what I use. If you do a lot of double/triple baffle stuff then find the longest bit you can...

    There a big difference between upcut and downcut? Downcut seems to leave a clean edge on the surface so wouldn't one prefer that especially when making boxes?

    And anyone know where to get 1/4" spiral but 2" or so cutting length? Everywhere I've looked I only see 1-1/4"
