Cyclone Dust Control Nut

Dusty Workpiece

Dusty Workpiece

The Cyclone Dust Extraction Nut is designed to more efficiently remove MDF and particle board dust in nested router operations, leading to improved finish quality, tool performance and ultimately, an improved work environment for the operator.  The Cyclone creates an upward draft to help direct the dust into the collection system and away from the tool and material.   The cyclone works best when using the shortest possible cut length to perform the cutting task so that the shroud stays close to the table to improve the vacuum.   How well it works depends on a synergy between your cutting application, efficiency/setup of your dust collection unit and the Cyclone performance.

The Cyclone is designed to work with any tool holder that accepts ER32, ER40 or RDO35 (SYOZ25) standard collets. Tool holders include HSK63F, HSK63E, SK30 or ISO30. The Cyclone can be installed in minutes! Simply remove the collet nut and collet, insert the collet into the Cyclone and secure it the tool holder. The Cyclone works best with tool diameters of 3/8″ and 1/2″. Manufactured from lightweight alloy, balanced to G2.5 and rated for RPM’s up to 20,000.

Interested in the Cyclone, please email or give us a call at 800-544-8436 to discuss if the Cyclone is the right tool for the job.  We offer a demo unit to test and make sure it performs to your satisfaction.

20mm Alternate Shear Insert Router Bit – Solid Carbide Replacement!

We are excited to introduce our new 20MM Alternate Shear Insert Router Bit (Part No. 22006). This 2-flute, 20 mm (0.787) diameter router bit is available in a 30 mm (1.180”) cutting length and an alternating shear cutting action. Though not recommended for machining double sided materials, this insert router bit is ideal for perimeter & grooving applications of raw composite (MDF & Particle Board) materials, solid woods and difficult to machine products such as Phenolic and especially solid surface (Avonite, Corian, Wilsonart, Formica & Swanstone).

3/4" Alternate Shear Insert Tool - PN 22006

3/4″ Alternate Shear Insert Tool – PN 22006

The face-mounted inserts enable a large gullet area which effectively and efficiently evacuates the material chips and aids in the heat dissipation. This is particularly important when machining heat setting materials such as Phenolic and Solid Surface materials. Standard double sided inserts are utilized and depending on the material being machined,  are available in two different carbide grades.  Reduce your tooling inventory and tooling cost substantially while improving efficiencies with a tool that offers a constant cutting diameter, economical inserts, rigid tool body construction and excellent finish results! 

Alternate Shear Pattern - PN 22006

Alternate Shear Pattern – PN 22006

When it comes to machining thicker materials and when a larger diameter is acceptable, the series No. 22006 alternate shear insert router bit is an ideal alternative to a 3/4″ solid carbide compression bit.

6245 Series Grooving/Surfacing Cutter – Bottom

The 6245 Series Insert Surface Planer is designed for use in a variety of applications in addition to surface planing.  The unique insert design makes this a great tool for rebating, jointing  and grooving up to 35mm in addition to surfacing in solid wood, panels and composites.  With two reversible tips cutting on the periphery and two center tips for plunge and bottom cutting, routing a large gullet area becomes easy as the body design provides optimal chip removal.  For axial plunge cutting operations exceeding 10mm, the spindle speed should be reduced to 12,000 RPM.

Reduce your tooling inventory and tooling cost substantially while improving efficiencies with a tool that offers a constant cutting diameter, economical inserts, rigid tool body construction and provides an excellent finish result!
