Open tool adapters for insertion of cutting tools using this simple to operate hand tool. Simply press the device handles together and a wedge like pin gently opens the spring-loaded adapter, allowing insertion of the cutting tool.
The number of cutting flutes in the tool determine how much material can be removed per rotation. For high speed, bulk material removal, single and double flute are recommended. Higher flutes will produce finer finishes, but may require a lower RPM than single flute mills.Flutes
Nominal cutting diameter of the tool
Shank diameter where the tool is in contact with the holder. D2 diameter can be too large for some machine spindles and smaller diameters may need an adapter to be used with spindles.
D3= Toric cut diameter is the relief made above the cutting flutes on the neck to allow a tool to have longer reach when milling deeper features. Also known as extended reach.(D3)
L1 is the total length of the tool from tip to base.Length
L2 is the length of the usable cutting edge of the tool. This is only the flutes. Also known as flute length. This determines the amount (depth) of material that can be removed per pass.Cutting Depth
L3= This is the overall reach a tool can be used. Flute plus any relief made by reducing the diameter in D3. AKA known as reachReach
Radius of the cutting tip/nose.Edge Radius
A= angle of a cutting edge. Drills, engraving tools and countersink tools aka point angle.A
