The CMR multitasking tool, part of the Carmex Tiny Tool line, enables users to bore, turn, face and chamfer with a single tool. The tool’s cutting geometry enables machining without the need for a pilot hole, saving the time and expense of that operation as well as the tooling required. The CMR continually evacuates chips through a vertical coolant hole during machining; a spiral flute design also aids chip removal. The tool’s submicron and BMK-grade carbide and its PVD triple-layer coating improve finish and yield longer tool life, according to Carmex.
