Amana Tool Straight Plunge Carbide-Tipped Router Bits

Edge of Arlington offers free shipping in the United States when you choose flat rate shipping.

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 degrades cut quality and leads to tool breakage.

A single-flute bit should be used where cut speed is more important than cut finish. Making one cut per revolution is faster than making two or three. Improved chip clearance is possible with a single flute configuration. The result: fast cuts.

Use a two-flute bit where a 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.

Open flute design promotes rapid chip clearance, necessary for high feed rates.
