Dimar's Double Flute Down Shear Carbide Tipped Mortising bit is recommended for creating mortises on a door or locksets. This bit was designed for high production work with maximum chip clearance for fast feed rates. Down shear bits are a good choice for cutting shallow grooves or dados with visible edges.
The slower feed speed allows a bit more time to evacuate chips which will help avoid excessive tool stress or friction.
A proper mortising bit, as shown, should have a large gullet between the two flutes.
Its cutting geometry is calculated to produce an exceptionally clean cut with crisp edges.
Perfect for vertical and gradual plunging.
Cuts most hardwoods, and softwoods.
Use on CNC, Hand-held routers, and table-mounted portable routers.
