Offered by Star SU, Star Cutter’s single-flute gundrills machine straight, deep holes in one pass in virtually any material. High-pressure coolant delivered through the tool keeps the cutting edges lubricated so chips can be evacuated down the flute channel. Gundrills are available in various lengths with diameters ranging from 0.078" to 0.75" (2 to 19 mm). Custom large-diameter tools are also available.
