A spiral down cut has blades which forces chips down back into your material. This has benefits of providing a perfect top finish to any wood type especially plys and top finishes. Made of a very high tungsten carbide material, down cut bits are the a weapon of choice in anyone's arsenal. Opposite to a spiral up cut, a down cut will give you a perfect top finish but a burred bottom finish if cutting all the way through. These bits therefore are most effective for engraving & lettering rather than cutting all the way through.

Suitable for

  • Wood (MDF, hardwood, ply & softwoods)

Adam’s Tips

Just like a straight flute, a down cut creates a lot of dust as opposed to chips so make sure you have appropriate ventilation or dust extraction when cutting. On the plus side, the dust gets stuck and packed back into the slot you have made and keeps your cut item in place. This has the advantage of not having to use tabs or tape to hold your material down although can add time back in with the need to deburr the bottom edge.

    endmill bits

    Posted by martin dekker on 15th Apr 2021

    The 6mm bit is fine although delivery took way to long. I have also purchased 1.5mm endmill bits from you which didn't last long and snapped within days of using them.

    Amazing Top Finish

    Posted by Cam Penrose on 4th Apr 2021

    Still not over with just how good the top finish is. The 2mm 1/8" bit is my go-to for reducing as much detail work as possible in hardwoods, and the bit just loves it. 10/10

    This bit must have cut 10 kilometres in the last two days- and it’s got many more miles left in it.

    Surprisingly good for a cheap bit. Cut over 400 minutes of 12mm plywood projects so far without drama.
