We offer our set of three Snug-Plug cutters (1/4", 3/8", 1/2") with either our single-edge or our double-edge flush-cutting saw at a discount.
It is always difficult to fit plugs perfectly; any slight runout in the drill-press quill can make holes oversize, while also making plugs undersize. Snug-Plug cutters form slightly tapered plugs; the first 1/8” of the plug is the stated size, and the rest flares at a 3° angle. Unlike regular plug cutters, they shave the plug sides as they cut, making very smooth plugs. Just tap a plug into a hole until you meet resistance, then trim the excess. The plug fits perfectly, with a nearly invisible line between plug and workpiece. The cutters are carefully reamed after hardening for perfect concentricity. 3/8” shanks. Patented. Resharpening instructions included.
The saws have thin, flexible blades that can be pressed flat against a surface, cutting the projection flush without marking the work. The Japanese tooth-pattern blade cuts aggressively on the pull stroke. The single-edge detail saw (26 tpi) has teeth with no set and can be used in a right- or left-handed orientation. With no tendency to drift in a cut, it can also be used for other fine-cutting applications. The double-edge style (22 tpi) cuts from either side; it has teeth set to one side only. Each saw is about 11 1/2” long with a 4 3/4” blade.
Either of these sets will quickly become indispensable in the shop.
