The cutters are available with two different shank styles. The standard two-flat shank is said to fit most magnetic drills and can be used with drill presses and machining centers with an appropriate spindle adapter. The newer cutters have Fusion Groove Innovation shanks for use in magnetic drills with tool-less arbors. The cutters also feature two 90-degree set screw flats to fit magnetic drills with standard arbors. A special surface treatment enhances toughness and durability, and gives the cutters a distinct “copperhead” color. Cutters are available individually or in kits.
