Create slots, grooves and rabbets in materials from 3,2mm (1/8") to 18mm (23/32") in depth by using the adjustable CMT three wing slot cutter set. See chart below for details on spacing and correct cutter combinations. Ideal for biscuit joints and milling perfect tongue and groove joints. Sets include:
- 4 carbide tipped cutters 3,2mm (1/8"), 4mm (5/32"), 4,8mm (3/16"), 6,4mm (1/4").
- A 12mm (15/32") or 12,7mm (1/2") arbor.
- A 22mm (7/8") ball bearing for a cutting depth up to 12,7mm (1/2").
- 17 shims in different sizes.
Safety tips: Never use the slot cutter set without shims between the cutters.
The distance between the cutters can vary from 1mm (1/32") to 1,7mm (1/16"). A shim must also be positioned between the ball bearing and the cutters.
Shop tips: the 791.711.00 bearings kit allows for 6,35 (1/4") and 9,5mm (3/8") cutting depth.
Notice: the carbide edges of the cutters should never touch; arrange the shims
as illustrated below. Use only the thicknesses provided in the set. Be sure all cutters are assembled in the proper right rotational direction below. Looking down the arbor the cutters will turn clockwise.
