This versatile cutter does a staggering amount of work. It can rout dadoes and rabbets, cut grooves for inlays, rout mortises (both for hinges and tenons), flatten or shape panels, rout specially shaped holes and cleanly cut round holes, and shape and duplicate parts with a template. Plus, you'll get a lot of life out of it. It's manufactured using the finest grade K20 tungsten carbide, which is silver brass welded for the strongest possible bone. We use a 600 grit diamond wheel on the final sharpening to produce the sharpest possible edge for a clean cut and long life.
