Solid carbide tools offer long tool life and faster cutting speeds than other substrates, but are more brittle and must be used with rigid toolholding systems
Uncoated tools feature just the base substrate without any additional treatment or coatings and are suitable for a wide range of applications
Round shanks allow use with a wide variety of toolholding systems
When run in a counterclockwise direction (right-hand cut) spiral fluted tools evacuate chips up and out of the cut to reduce clogging
Single flute, 21 degree angle
Soft plastic designed to provide a smooth finish in soft plastic with upward chip removal. Use for HDPE, HIPS, UHMW, ABS, polycarbonate, PE, polystyrene, polypropylene, acetal, acrylic, PET and solid surface.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The title is a bit off because it says the shank is 0.125" when the specs say the shank is 1/4". The photo also shows a cutter with the shank diameter the same as the cutting diameter. It IS, however, 1/4" shank. I use it on a smallish CNC router with a 2hp spindle and it's worked quite well. In soft plastics like ABS I initially had the chip winding around the shank, melting and make a truly horrible cut. I built a new dust shoe to dramatically increase the air velocity around the cutter and with that dust shoe to keep the chips clear this cutter has worked very well.
If you're cutting HDPE this is the bit for you. Excellent finish and chip clearing. I'm still learning feeds and speeds for my router. Right now I run these at about 15,000 RPM and 120 IPM and get very good results. If you've got some other suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Get two! (just in case)
Excellent for cutting/ machining plastics, used on ABS plastic, beautiful job, highly recommended!!!
