Amana Tool 51415 CNC SC Spiral O Single Flute, Plastic Cutting 1/16 D x 1/4 CH x 1/8 SHK x 2 Inch Long Up-Cut Router Bit with Mirror Finish
WARNING! Due to the extremely small diameters involved, bits with smaller diameter of 1/8" are not guaranteed against breakage.
Reduce RPM & Feed Rates (IPM) by 30-50% to prevent tool breakage due to extremely small diameter (D). #51415 is high finish (not mirror finish due to small diameter).
These bits are specifically designed for a variety CNC machining applications and a long list (see below) of materials. Continuous improvements in cutting performance, the unique carbide polishing process, tool design & geometry make these router bits perfect for routing signs and displays. Signmaking (signcrafter) router bits were originally developed in Europe specifically for professional sign makers. Corrugated plastic products, such as Correx boards are used in a variety of applications including boat building, packaging, signage, outdoor advertising, and the production of pet cages. Today, CNC routers have become the tool of choice for sign makers, moving beyond printers and vinyl cutters.
Benefits of Mirror-Finish:
- Industrial quality
- Single flute design
- Super high flute mirror finish results in better cut quality
- Dissipates heat well and prevents melting
- Right hand helix/right hand cut
- Eject chips up or down
- Longer tool life
