For straight plugging operations, nothing works better in the 1/4" to 1/2" sizes than our carbon steel Snug Plug® cutters, but for larger plugs or for cutting tenons, these are the best you can get. Not only are they made to very tight tolerances and will therefore cut accurate tenons and plugs, but we spent nearly two years in a design and test process to get the cleanest possible finish and the least heat build-up while cutting.
Available in all carbon steel as well as a version with carbide tips on the cutting spurs and rakers. The high-carbon steel cutters are fine in softwoods, but care has to be taken in hardwoods to avoid overheating. The carbide-tipped cutters are the best choice for general-purpose drilling as they excel in hardwood or heavy use.
The convenience of being able to cut tenons and plugs up to 3" in diameter makes these bits indispensable.
Plugs 1" long or shorter automatically side eject. Total available depth of cut is 2". Cutters up to 1" dia. have 1/2" round shanks, above 1", 1/2" hex.
For use only in a drill press. Patented.
Available individually and in sets of four or six cutters. Set of four includes sizes 3/8", 1/2", 3/4" & 1". Set of six is boxed and includes sizes 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8" & 1".
The High-Carbon Steel Cutters are no longer available.
