The mortising bit is designed to make shallow cuts; an ideal option for hinge mortising, running dados and milling the ‘shoulder’ and ‘cheek’ of tenons. The time taken to mill larger areas can be efficiently reduced by choosing bits with larger cutting diameters (D); however the plunging ability becomes less proficient with the larger cutting diameter. The additional width & depth of the gullet between the cutting edges of this bit provides improved chip clearance and less chip loading.
Please peruse Whiteside’s “Screw Type Helix Mortise” bits for mortising options with downshear.
