There is only really one bit that you would want to attempt on plastics and that is the 1 flute up cut. Also know and single or “O” flute, the one toothed up cutter allows for maximum chip ejection compared to any other bit and generates the least amount of heat. The combination of the two means that when cutting plastics, you avoid the nasty occurrence of “chip rewelding” where plastic upon cutting heats up to the point it solidifies behind the cutter, rather than ejecting nicely. As these bits are purposely aggressive, using these bits on laminated woods like ply or softwoods would tear up your material and leave a heavily burred finished.

Suitable for

  • Plastics (ABS, acrylic, HPDE etc.)
  • Wood (MDF, hardwood)
  • Aluminium

Adam’s Tips

To reduce rewelding, ensure your bit doesn’t heat up by driving your feed rate high and router RPM low.

    Using a 6mm and a 12mm in HDPE Results are amazing to say the least. Follow Adam’s advice slow the speed and up the feed and they hog like a dream. Highly recommend!!

    Using this bit on acrylic sheet is great, it gives a really good finish even down to detail shapes and parts, I'm using a cutting speed of 300mm/min for the 2mm bit, highly recommend this bit.
