A complete cutter set for producing matchline or T G & V boarding. Available with either 4mm or 6mm tongue. Each set contains arbor, 2 x 2 wing cutters and a bearing. The slotter cutter produces the groove half of the joint and when reversed the bearing produces the tongue. This cutter can be used freehand but we would recommend using in a router table where possible. 1/2" shank. Supplied in storage case.
|Shank Diameter||1/2" (12.7 mm)|
|X||15 mm or 18 mm|

Not usefulThis bit seemed to be quite a useful tool but I have struggled to make it work! There is a lack of help or guidance with how to use it (although it should be pretty straight forward) and set it up so after a day of trying to justify the cost that I paid for the cutter my conclusion is not good. You cannot adjust the bearing to make the tongue cut after you have cut the groove as it doesn't work, the profile is wrong and the cutters are only 2 wing and not three wing as suggested. The bearing is too large and won't allow for a simple one pass stroke. The little shims that pack between the cutters are too tight and get really wedged on once you have used the cutter and a real pain to try and get back off. I will be approaching Axminster for a refund so that I can get a better option which I have found else where.
