When cutting soft metals like aluminium & brass, there is nothing easier to use and more suitable than a high grade 1 flute up cut. An 1 flute has the best chip ejection and heat dissipation which avoids jamming due to the gummy nature of soft materials. An 1 flute also has the capability to operate effectively with widely varied feeds and speeds as compared to 2 & 3 flute when slotting. For peripheral cutting, a 2 or 3 flute for soft metals is ideal for the side & bottom finish.

Suitable for

  • Soft Metals (Aluminium & Brass)
  • Plastics (ABS, acrylic, HPDE etc)
  • Aluminium Composite Materials

Adam’s Tips

You will get a different finish on the side of your material depending if you use a climb or conventional cut. Do some test cuts and check which side comes out the best and adjust your toolpath accordingly. These bits are great on plastics as they are really tough but do not have a sharp edge. You will be able to run these bits faster on plastic compared to a 1 flute (for plastics) bit but depending on the finish you require, might only be suitable for cutting all the way through.

    Just used it today for cutting aluminium composite panel and at this stage it works well with a very smooth cut and good chip removal.

    Perfect cutting in Brass

    Posted by Jorden Baker on 26th Apr 2021

    I had been struggling for so long to try and cut small brass gears and pinions. Not being able to afford a lathe, these 1 Flute cutters have been amazing. They have opened up all sorts of new possibilities for me. Great quality at a great price.

    Best Bang for Buck Bits.

    I've been using Adams bits exclusively for the past 9 months. Best Bang for Buck by far. Dimensionally stable bits with zero run out. Highly recommended.

    Router End Mill

    Posted by Philip on 22nd Feb 2021

    I machine aluminium using a CNC router and was paying upwards of $60 for each solid carbide, single flute end mill. Adam's bits do the same job for a quarter of the price and have saved me a lot of money over the past four years.

    I've been cutting with them for a number of weeks now and have had no issues, broke a few bits, but that was due to machine issues

    Single flute up cut bit for Aluminium

    Posted by Murray Macpherson on 28th Oct 2020

    I tried some single flute bits from Adam's bits on polycarbonate which is my preferred plastic for CNC work. Very impressed with how clean the result was. These single flute bits will be my go to bits from now on!
