About 1/4″ Brazed Tip Carbide Tools
Carbide tools have a small piece of tough carbide brazed to the tip of a softer steel shank. These tools are recommended for cutting hard or abrasive materials. Carbide tools can retain their hardness at temperatures up to approximately 1700°. This permits a higher cutting speed and faster feed rates.
They are typically harder to sharpen than their HSS counterparts. A silicon carbide or diamond grinding wheel must be used. The shape of carbide tools is also more critical than the shape of high-speed steel cutters, but their cutting ability on tough or abrasive materials makes them very popular. If you are cutting a material that quickly dulls your HSS cutters, you will find carbide tools might be just what you need.
NOTE: A tool is named by the direction from which the chip leaves the tool; so a left-hand tool has its cutting edge on the right and the chip peels off to the left.
The improper use of machine tools and their accessories can result in serious injury. Before using this tool, thoroughly read the instructions and make sure you understand its proper and safe use.
Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
