If you’ve experienced long carve times with your 1/8” bits, or even had them break because they cannot handle the workload, then get ready for this wicked little bit called the “BADGER

The BADGER has been called “The little bit with a BIG BITE”  by our fellow creators who tested it. For a 1/8” CNC router bit, no other 1/8” bit can match its aggressiveness and blazing speed for removing material from your CNC router project.

With a 1/8 shank and 1/8” cut diameter, the BADGER falls into the roughing bit category. The BADGER is not designed to deliver clean cuts. Its sole purpose is speed, and it excels at it!

Featuring a staggering 1/4" depth of cut per pass, 80ipm plunge rate, 70% step-over, and a whopping 130 inches per minute cut rate, the BADGER is undisputed when it comes to rapid material removal from your CNC router woodworking projects.

Comparing to other 1/8” endmills, the BADGER can remove material 10X faster than standard 1/8” endmills

Getting a roughing bit like the BADGER is not just about time savings. It is also about saving your other 1/8” bits for the finishing touch-up AND prolonging the life of them.

By using the BADGER as your workhorse for major material removal, you'll extend the lifespan of your regular CNC router bits. Let them handle the finishing touches while the BADGER handles the heavy lifting when a lot of material needs to be removed in fine details…like Aztec calendars.

The Badger

Good morning Garrett, I have bought 2 badger bits so far the first one that I broke was my fault for sure pretty hard not. The one that I just got from you I was using for some rough cutting for a 3D model, so this time I went into the bit settings and set the cut depth to .10 instead of the .25 it is set at, I then set the step over at 10% of bit. I watched the machine cut through 3/4 of the project went in to eat dinner came back out and the bit was broke but project done. I took it as it must have been almost complete when it broke. Just a little frustrated do to the fact that I am new at this. I am going to order another badger bit third time is a charm. Any tips or tricks for me? Oh the wood that I was roughing out is pine 2x10.

Feed the Badger!

The Badger chews through a roughing pass like a rat on a cheeto! Hardwoods cannot stand up to it. The Badger has excelled with the challenges I "fed" it.

If you're on the fence, then pull the trigger. You will not be disappointed!

Sorry, I've not had anytime to use any of the last order of roughing tool bits. Busy with health issues with my wife.
