    Milling Corian countertops

    I have to do some custom work on some corian counter top material, how well does this stuff cut? Need any special blades for a bandsaw to cut? How about router bits, anything special to use?

    Thanks in advance

    Tom Corian works well , use regular sharp carbide blades and router bits and you will have no trouble at all. It is a plastic so your bandsaw will do just fine

    I agree with Charles. I'll add that it creates a lot of dust and swarf.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    I've used a triple chip grind blade made for plastics and laminate on my saw cutting Corian with no problems. Ditto on the carbide router bits. Works great. Jim.
