Default Best MDF bit

In your experience, what are the best bits for a smooth finish for MDF doors. Currently trying to start making some shaker doors and everything turned out pretty decent except the center rastoring. It is very fibrous feeling, kind of like felt. Anyway I can improve this? Trying to add to my tool box of knowledge from you experienced guys.

MDF also comes in Door Grade or HDF, when we did this we ordered White Back (melamine one side)

It is far more dense and fuzzing is minimal

One of the best bits to machine MDF is the 3 flute slow spiral by Southeast Tool

Here is the Link

You will be able to speed up your feed rate due to the 3rd cutting edge and the slow spiral will keep a clean cut without packing the dust in to the void as solid as a typical down cut bit.

If you need to place an order and do not have your CAMaster discount code just let me know.
