Carving, Engraving and Routing Carving, Engraving and Routing
These 3/32" shank cutters work well for engraving the detail in wood, fiberglass, plastic and soft material.
High Speed Cutters
These 1/8" shank cutters are used for shaping, hollowing, grooving, slotting, inletting and making tapered holes in soft metal, wood and plastic. Keep in mind that the actual cutting action is coming from the sides of the cutter. The point or tip is not designed to cut well and therefore will not provide optimum performance. When working on wood, the cutter will follow the grain, so a steady hand is important.
Diamond Wheel Points
These 3/32" shank wheel points work well for fine detail work on wood, jade, ceramic, glass, hardened steel, semi-precious stones and other hard material. These accessories are impregnated with diamond particles.
All router bits are 1/8" shank. They work well for inlaying, and mortising in wood and other soft materials. They are constructed of high speed steel.
