Rated 5 out of 5Â by DaNose CNC'ing it Good Stylee!
I bought this bit for use on a CNC router to cut a variety of material, but initially, MDF. I had read a previous review saying it would cause vibration as it's single flute but I thought I'd give it a go regardless.
I'm glad I did. With the correct spindle speed (6600rpm in this case), feed rate (1000mm/min) and a depth of cut of approx half the diameter, I didn't get any vibration, just bits of MDF leaving behind lovely clean edges where I wanted! It was great to see it just working. It ate 6mm MDF with no issues whatsoever.
Given how much more specialist CNC bits cost, I'll probably get some more of these instead.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DrillItQuick 18.1 actually about 13
I assumed that the 18.1mm was the length of the cutting edge ie the max depth of cut. Actually it is about 13mm. So my intention to cut 18mm MDF sadly turned to dust. I can only cut 12mm MDF.
Also don't use this in a CNC machine. Having a single flute causes dreadful vibration

bit of a mixed up review here,ive no doubt this is a good tool but just a warning if you are thinking of buying online for collection or delivery,the dimensions shown lead you to having a 51.8 cutting depth,but tool lenght will probably only cut 20mm,overall lenght is probably 51.8 mm

Requested a 1/4" router tool. Received a 1/8"cutting tool with 6.35 shank. Better too small than too big. Did the job I bought it for.
