    You will only get about two joints per cutter (4 cuts) less if you buy cheap cutters.

    I use a cutter with replaceable tips, the tips are double sided so you get 8 cuts for less than £10.

    Wealden do a very good next day delivery and the prices include VAT & Del.

    use a good quality jigsaw wherevever you can[one that cuts strait in worktops]or a circular saw to remove down to 3mm from the line then finnish with your router cutter
