1/2 x 3-1/2” Solid Carbide Flat (SQ) End Mill with a .375 (3/8″) cutting tip and a 1-1/4 inch length of cut.
Our spiral upcut bits provide a shear cutting edge that leaves a smoother cut than standard router bits. Up cut spiral design provides the best control with hand or table routing. When creating dado’s this design brings chips up and out of the cut. Perfect for milling plastic, wood and aluminum.
This bit works really well on the Pantorouter!
These tools are coated with a proprietary high performance *Astra coating* that allows higher speed & feed rates as well as extended tool life & increased lubricity in abrasive material.
What is an UpCut bit?
UpCut bits allow for rapid cuts since the tool clears the chips away from the material. While Ideal for cutting thicker materials, this type of tool is not recommended for thinner or softer materials. They are more likely to tear the top surface with the cutting edges because they’re pulling the wood fibers up while cutting. When cutting laminated materials, such as plywood with a thin top veneer, that can matter a lot. This type of bit is used whenever the best finish is needed on the bottom side of a part.
