These razor-sharp, double-faced cutters perfectly synthesize the characteristics and advantages that define quality CMT products. Made of special Fatigue Proof steel and micrograin carbide, our straight bits can withstand even the heaviest work load and still give you a smooth, precise cut every time. You also get exceptional chip ejection to allow cleaner and more constant cutting.
The surface of all CMT bits is protected with our trademark orange non-stick PTFE to help keep the bit from collecting resin, pitch and other residue. Every bit is submitted to strict quality tests to guarantee perfect cutting tolerance, balance and concentricity.
CMT bits allow production on an industrial scale using a variety of plywood, composites and natural woods. Here is a link to an article about making a simple but extremely accurate mortising jig.
Never use worn or damaged cutters and work at the appropriate feed rates without ever forcing the tool. Pay particular attention to the entrance of the cutter in the wood, using one of small diameter. To obtain the best results with small diameters, make the cut in several passes.
