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.

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!
Wow, it truly is a beast when it comes to quick deep clearances. Better than a hot knife thru butter!
Lives up to its name
This baby chews some wood!!!
I have only used the HOG so far...I used it for surfacing 0.05" off 10" diameter wooden slices. It did an awesome...they just needed about 30 seconds of 80 grit afterwards to smooth with any tooling signs.
