We have been cutting laid up HPL on particleboard panels on our CNC router for about a year and a half now. We used to have no problem cutting with a WKW 3/8" 2 flute down cut. The last couple of months we keep getting a nick in the bit right at the laminate line after every panel we cut. We have tried several other bits with no success. Is there a bit out there that will give us the cut and durability we are looking for?

From contributor A:
We use a 3/8" diamond cutter to cut laminate. It cost around $300 a pop but it last 6 or 7 months cutting laminate every day. I'm not sure were we get these from, but I will find out and post it soon.
