Here’s a powerful combination of CNC router bits for you. This set of the "Hog" and the "Beast" roughing bits for CNC routers, is designed to conquer material removal in record time on your CNC woodworking projects. Say goodbye to long carve times and hello to lightning-fast results with this dynamic duo.

The sole purpose of this set is speed, making them the undisputed champs when it comes to efficiently removing material from your CNC router woodworking projects.

 Let's start with the aptly nicknamed "Beast," a hyper-speed CNC router bit with a 1/4" shank from IDC Woodcraft. This roughing bit is the ultimate solution for rapid material removal. While it falls into the roughing bit category, don't underestimate its capabilities. The "Beast" will blow your mind with its unparalleled speed and efficiency.

 Featuring an impressive 3/4" depth of cut per pass, a 100ipm feed rate, and an 80% step-over, the "Beast" is designed to excel in delivering lightning-fast material removal. In fact, it can handle feed rates as high as 800 inches per minute on very hard wood with floor-model machines.

 Built with a thicker core and a shorter flute length, the "Beast" CNC router bit is engineered to withstand rigorous workloads. Its durability ensures it can handle the heavy lifting, allowing your other CNC router bits to focus on delivering clean cuts and intricate details. 

And now, with the addition of the "Hog" roughing bit, you have the ultimate combination set at your disposal. The "Hog" features a 1 1/2" flute length, making it ideal for tackling deeper carves the “Beast” can’t reach, such as deep bowls and guitar bodies.

Together, the "Beast" and the "Hog" form an unstoppable team that will transform your CNC woodworking project run time.

Don't let material removal slow you down. Unleash the power of the "Beast" and the "Hog" on your CNC woodworking projects and experience the significant time savings firsthand. With this bundle, you'll always have a backup, ensuring uninterrupted progress in your work. Upgrade your CNC routing game today with the "Hog" and the "Beast" roughing bits.

Why would you want these bits? Not just for speed when roughing out your material, but also to save wear and tear on your clean-cutting bits, like your up-ct, down-cut and compression endmills. Let the “Beast” and “Hog” do the material removal, and the others do the delicate clean-up to make your CNC project look its best!

Any products I have ever purchased from IDC are all top notch and I recommend them for all CNC machines.

pretty good

A day after I received my Beast and hog, I was using the hog at 1/8 " depth of cut around 80 IPM. My spindle lost power but the machine kept going and shattered the beast, in pine. I sent a message to IDC via their "Contact Us" on the website asking if they could help me get a replacement but haven't heard back from them. I submitted the same request for help today and still haven't received and reply. The only thing I received from them is this request to submit a review so here we are :-). I know it wasn't their fault but some kind of reply would have been appreciated

Beast Hog

Hi! Have not used the Beast / Hog bit yet but the Badger I bought at the same time works great. I am sure the Hog will be just as good.

Indestructible bits!

I got these as a Christmas present and had used them a few times but recently I was doing a project in some old Mahoghany wood. I upcycle old wood from tables and normally I find all the connectors and pieces in the wood before I cut. Well, I made 2 big mistakes but this didn't stop these bits at all.
The first mistake was that I had screwed the piece of wood to my CNC bed with drywall screws. Well as it was roughing out the wood, the pattern cuts extra around the 3D carve and I heard the distinct bit going through metal and I ran over to look and the bit just kept going perfectly like it was going through hot butter. It sheared off the head of the screw smoothly. So I thought I was out of the woods. Well, since this was a leaf of a table, it had 2 brass inserts that I didn't see, well the HOG ate through it so smoothly, I was scared to look at the bit when it was done. The bit looks brand new and no damage at all and I was afraid that I was going to have to buy another bit after this project.

These are the best bits I have ever seen and used! I am a customer for life!
