Amana Tool has introduced a solid-carbide, double-ball- bearing, flush-trim router bit for trimming plastic and laminate materials.
Developed in response to customer demand for a small bit that can easily maneuver in tight corners and intricate designs, the two-flute router bit features a mirror finish polish with a razor sharp cutting edge for producing clean, smooth cuts in plastics, according to the company.
Amana also says its double-ball-bearing design provides smoother action around the contours of a template due to increased stability.
“The bits are made according to strict tolerances from solid carbide and polished to a mirror finish using Amana’s unique process. The double-ball-bearing, flush-trim bit is designed as a compliment to Amana’s CNC solid-carbide spiral ‘O’ flute router bits for plastic materials,” according to a company statement.
The flush-trim bit, item No. 51436, is available in a 1/4” diameter at a base price of $43.
