Wondering why the 3/16" down cutting endmill is such a big deal with CNC router owners? There's one huge reason...

The 3/16" bit is often called The Silver Bullet of CNC router bits. That's because it's used to do both 1/8" and 1/4" work, saving the need for 2 different size bits. It eliminates irritating bit changes for many CNC router projects that would normally use both.

However, this bit IS the silver bullet of 3/16" CNC router bits. You see, it has 3 distinct modifications that give it an advantage in your woodworking over the standard 3/16" router bits.

→ The increased spiral turn reduces shear forces at any given point on the cutting edges. That increases the bit life dramatically.

→ the 'knife' edge is has a sharper angle that allows it to shear material away like a super-sharp knife through a sirloin steak (think about what 5-star chefs use).

→ The 1-inch flute length (25mm) gets you deep into your project, just as you would with a 1/4" bit.

Cleaner cuts, longer bit life, deeper cut ability, and fewer bit change-outs! With these benefits, you'll end up using this bit for most of your projects.

You'll make this your main workhorse bit in no time.

As usual with IDC bits, it is made of 100% tungsten carbide. Carbide is what professional metal machinists use to make complex items like car engines. It stays sharp 50x longer than conventional CNC router bits.

Great service and product

Everything came as expected and cutters work smoothly. Was also impressed with the personal touch of a snack pack of MM's in my package made my day. Service and help is great.

3/16 Down Cutting Endmill with 1/4 inch shank and 1/8 inch Badger

Both of these tools arrived quickly and are both awesome bits. The 3/16 is just about perfect for many cuts, very durable. The badger is incredible, and leaves much cleaner cuts than I had expected. Great job IDC guys and gals.

Great end mill for hole cutting on new waste board
