HC5122M ('M' = mortise style):

  • 6.35mm (1/4") up cut flute length
  • the tool is designed with shorter up-cut end flutes
  • applying a down shear action to the top surface during shallow cuts
  • great for dado cutting
  • shorter up cut is preferred on slot or mortise cutting; whilst the important upward feed of chip is still maintained, the top surface being cut is engaged by the downward shear from the down cut spiral

Hercules Max Life Spirals:

  • designed to hold up under severe loading
  • engineered for maximum bit life in high wear applications
  • ideal for longer production runs in MDF and Laminates
