2 Flute COMPRESSION UP DOWN Carbide End Mill

(4 reviews) Write a Review

If an upcut gives you a great bottom finish and a down cut a great top finish, why not have both with a compression cutter! A compression cutter starts with an up cut component usually the length of the diameter (e.g. ⅛” has a ⅛” up cut component and the rest to down cut) so get the full benefit of the cutter, your first plunge must go below that length (e.g. ⅛” or more). Compression cutters like to run a bit faster than other wood cutting bit to get the best finish along the side of your material.

Suitable for

  • Wood (MDF, hardwood)
  • Wood (Ply & softwoods)
  • Melamine White Board

Adam’s Tips

Albeit compression bits are primarily used for slot cutting, you can still profile cut as long as you go past the up cut component. This will give you both a perfect bottom and top finish.

    Used this on Birch Ply and the top and bottom edges were clean. Recommended for sure.
