Timberline 100-17 Carbide Tipped Straight Plunge Economy 1/4 D x 1/2 CH x 1/4 Inch SHK Router Bit
Each Timberline® router bit utilizes only the finest steel and micro-grain carbide; our cnc multi-axis sharpening technology creates a shear angle and radial relief on every form bit. Timberline® router bits feature the latest in anti-kickback design technology; this important feature limits the cutting depth which ensures that our bits are safer for your use.
In choosing a straight bit for any application, always select one with the shortest cutting edges and the shortest overall length that will reach the required cut depth. Excessive length intensifies deflection and vibration, which degrade cut quality and lead to tool breakage. Use a two-flute bit where fine finish is paramount. Two flutes balance the bit, eliminating vibration that degrades the cut finish. Two cuts per revolution yield a smooth surface, but feed rate is slightly reduced.
