The company’s Super O line of polished O-flute tools can be used on many types of materials. A polished open flute design not only allows for easier chip formation and evacuation, but also provides a sharper cutting edge that delivers a better edge finish, the company says. Special point geometry contributes to improved bottom finish and plunging capabilities. Tools are available in upcut and downcut versions from 1/16" through 3/8" diameters.
