The Straight Shaft Single Flute Insert Fly Cutter with a 1/2″ straight shank.
This fly cutter offers several advantages over the standard high-speed steel fly cutter. Inserted carbide tips will last much longer without sharpening, plus they provide an excellent finish on hard-to-machine materials like cold-rolled and stainless steel. The cutter path is 1-1/8″ (28.6mm) wide. The cutter shape allows it to cut a straight shoulder on a part; something that cannot be done with the standard fly cutter. Once you use this tool, you will understand why 80% or more of the metal removed in modern machine shops is removed with carbide insert tools.
The cutter comes with one 2-edged carbide insert, a Torx attachment screw, a drawbolt, and washer, plus a T-15 Torx wrench. Additional inserts are available through Sherline as P/N 7622.
