Our customer was cutting some laminated and veneered materials. Additionally, the customer needed a cutting diameter and shank diameter of 3/8” and a flute lenth of 1”.
Based on their project requirements, we recommended the Onsrud 60-100 compression spiral series, specifically sku number 60-122. This bit is designed for low speed applications and optimum finish on both sides of laminated materials. Since it is a compression bit, the flutes are not in one continuous pattern. Instead, the top half of the flute length is an upcut spiral while the bottom half is a downcut spiral. This causes the chips to compress into the center of the bit, leaving both sides of the material nice and smooth.
