Ultra-shear carbide headed, big bowl router bits

1/2″ Shank 3-Flute Deep Reach Bowl Bits in 4 Different Corner Radii Available; 1″ Cutting Diameter.

Strongsville, OH – Northeast Ohio tool manufacturer, Woodpeckers, recently announced its new range of 1″ cutting diameter bowl bits. These new Ultra-Shear bits achieve 50% more cuts per inch (with their 3-flute design) and have at least a 1/2″ reach advantage over most other brands of bowl bits (2-7/8″ overall). They’re available with corner radii of 1/8″, 3/16″, 1/4″ and 5/16″.

Woodpeckers president, Richard Hummel told us, ” Serving bowls, divided charcuterie boards, and holiday candy dishes are just some of the hundreds of projects you can make. “How” you make them is up to you. The bits are equipped with pattern-following bearings, but if you want to use them in a CNC, the bearings come off in seconds.”

Ultra-Shear borrowed a technique from metal-cutting tool companies to merge solid carbide spiral cutting efficiency with steel shank economy. Their “Carbide Head” bits have a solid carbide blank brazed to a steel shank. After the head is brazed on, the 3-flute spiral cutting pattern is ground to shape, just like a solid carbide spiral. The result is spiral cutting performance at prices that compete with carbide tipped bits.

Woodpeckers has focused on the needs of hobbyist woodworkers since 1988 and began manufacturing the majority of their offerings in 1993. The company makes precision layout tools, router tables and lifts, innovative clamping tools, carbide-tipped woodturning tools, carbide router bits and a wide variety of helpful shop products. Their facility houses a vast array of computer-controlled mills and lathes and employs over 100 skilled American workers.
