Metric half-rounds and metric mortising bits from ultra-shear

Strongsville, OH – Northeast Ohio tool manufacturer, Woodpeckers, recently released their latest Ultra-Shear router bits, 5 solid carbide Metric Spiral Mortising Bits in sizes that perfectly match Festool’s Domino tenons (4, 5, 6, 8 and 10mm) and 5 Metric Half-Round Bits in the same sizes. The half-round bits allow you to make loose tenon stock to fit mortises cut with Festool’s Domino joining machine or mortises cut with the new spiral bits. Now your loose tenon joinery is no longer tied to the ready-made Dominos. You can make stock to fit the wider settings on the Domino or use your router to cut even wider mortises.

The Metric Half-Rounds all have 1/2″ shanks and should be used in a router table. The 3 smaller Metric Spirals have 1/4″ shanks while the 8 and 10mm sizes are 1/2″ shank. All bits are available individually or in matched sets for mortising or tenon shaping.

Woodpeckers President, Richard Hummel had this to say, “While we targeted making tenon stock that looks good in exposed joints, it turns out our customers are equally excited about making larger tenons for more robust joints.”

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 spiral router bits and a wide variety of helpful shop products. Their facility houses a vast array of computer-controlled mills, lathes and grinders and employs over 100 skilled American workers.
