The 3/16" compression endmill bit is a unique bit for CNC routers. It allows you to cut out your project while leaving both the top and bottom edges of your project clean (eliminates tear-out).
Cut diameter: 3/16", Shank: 1/4", Length: 2.375"
Flutes: 2, Flute length: 1"
Up-shear length: 0.15"
Material: 100% carbide
This premium 3/16" compression bit (also known as an up-down bit) is unique for a compression bit. It has the strength of a 1/4" yet can get almost the detail of a 1/8" compression bit.
Compression bits allow you to cut out your CNC project while leaving both the top and bottom edges of your project clean (eliminates tear-out).
The 3/16" compression bit can cut the entire depth of 3/4" material in one pass.
Compression bits are commonly used in place of the up-cutting endmills and the down-cutting endmills. They are excellent for use when cutting out plywood, and other lumber at full depth on your CNC woodworking projects.
I know Garrett has another bit he calls “the Beast“ but this bit is my personal beast! I’m currently on my third with two more as back up. I use this to carve figurines for an artisan, who then paints them. So far I have carved well in excess of 2000 figurines for her. This bit goes on and on and on, I’m simply amazed at how long it stays sharp and at the speed I can cut through 3/4 inch MDF. With its slightly smaller size, I generate less waste and less sawdust than I would with a 1/4 inch bit. That is a win!
This is my "go-to" bit for 90% of my projects!
