Watch as Tyson puts his sign making skills into action with Amana Tool®’s 1/8” and 1/4” diameter Solid Carbide Spektra™ Extreme Tool Life Coated Down-Cut Router Bits. He cuts the classic Route 66 Sign into 1" thick laminated melamine on his Carbide 3D CNC machine.

Tyson says: "My first application of Oramask applied on a piece of white melamine and now here are a few clips of it being cut with these Amana CNC router bit, and it leaves perfectly crisp edges." Amana Tool Spektra™ bits feature a nACo® nanocomposite coating with an extreme nanohardness and heat resistance. With a brilliant, distinctively-tinted coloring, nACo provides additional improvements in critical aspects of router tooling which results in extreme tool longevity and cuts of the highest quality.
