Perfect plug tool
This is easy to use and works very well. Cut plugs eject easily. I've cut hundreds of plugs, absolutely no issues.

Does the job
I purchased this to make a oak face grain plug to fill a hole a previous owner put in a hardwood floor to run a cable for his tv. It will make plugs all day long. Nice to have the ability to custom match the existing wood grain to make a patch disappear.

The center guide is very effective. After a few practice plugs, the cutter was easy to guide with repeatable goals.

Cuts fine but leaves a dimple.
I used this cutter to make oak plugs for a repair job. The plugs have a dimple in the center. To make this "go away" I put the piece across my jointer before I cut them loose on my table saw. Putting a double layer of blue tape across the stock kept me from chasing the plugs around the shop, if I could find them. Would be nice if I could remove the center pin.

1/2 inch plug cutter
I was disappointed in the rough finish it gave. I ran it on the slow speed on my drill press. I tried it out on pine,oak and cherry. This would be ok for a few plugs. I will keep it and use it for a back up. The 4 cutter is a much better tool

Does this cut tapered plugs?
Diana L H on Apr 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It most certainly DOES cut slightly tapered plugs. I have a can full of them in my shop. I don't think the other responders know what they are talking about.
how long of a plug will this make?
