How to? recess bolt slots in fiber skids?

I built a set of 1" thick nylon skids (shoes) for a Ariens last year and am now making another pair for another that has wider bolt slots. Before I cut the slots then man-handled a wider wood bit in drill press to get a recess for bolts to ride in.. Is their a accual bit or tool for cutting recesses in slots for the nuts to be recessed in? Got to be better way than wood bit! Thanks

How about an appropriate diameter router bit on a router table?

Maybe a Forstner bit? Either that or a router bit. If you're simply drilling a recess Forstner is the way to go.

Yes! That is right but it depend on what you accomplish.

Are you just making a simple counter bore? If so, the Fostner bit is perfect and simple.

Or

are you trying to drag the counter bore along a through slot. If so you need the router bit and something to act like a router table.


Take a picture of a good example of what you are trying to make and post it.

if you want to counter sink the length of the slot I would suggest a router bit or end mill.
