The up/down cut staggertooth bit is designed for improved finish to boards faced on both sides.
The staggertooth router bit has 2 single flutes aligned at 180º to each other and unlike standard 2 flute bits the flutes are staggered one above the other. Each flute performs as a ‘single flute’ but the 2 flute arrangement provides the bit with dynamic balance at high speeds.
Designed for fast aggressive production work where performance and higher feed rates are paramount and where finish is of lesser concern - excels in CNC works. The staggertooth will provide proficient chip clearance and fast plunging. Useful for deep slotting and mortising. The economical alternative to twin flute bits and spirals
Hand held routing with the staggertooth may prove slightly unsettling for the first time user of these bits – do not expect the smooth cutting experience that a twin flute bit or spiral bit provides.
Install bearing and lock collar on shank to enable pattern or template routing.
Compatible with CNC, table mounted routers and hand held routing.
All Whiteside’s cutting tips are hand brazed, precision ground and made from American industrial grade micro grain tungsten carbide.
