These Amana bits will produce clean, smooth cut edges in acrylic and other plastic materials.
Cut Diameter: 1/4"
Cut Length: 3/4"
Overall Length: 2 1/2"
Flute Type: Upcut
The bits are made according to strict tolerances from an exclusive high-quality carbide grade and polished to a mirror finish using Amana's unique process.
The upward spiral geometry will eject chips up out of the cut where they can be collected by a suitable extraction system.
Amana cutters are renowned for their quality and durability.
Use for: Profile cutting in all rigid plastics. Can also be used on woods, foams, and laminates
