Shank Size

All bits with a cutting diameter greater than 1/4″(6.35mm) are made with 1/2″(12.7mm) shanks. The extra stiffness reduces vibration and
chatter. The 1/4″(6.35mm) louver bit also
a 1/2″(12.7mm) shank because of the
added forces with cross grain routing. Bits
with a
cutting diameter of 1/4″(6.35mm) or less have 1/4″(6.35mm) shanks.


8-piece Mortise & Tenon Jig Bit set includes: bits 162 (1/16″), 164C (1/8″), 166C (3/16″), 168C (1/4″), 170-500C (5/16″), 173-500C (3/8″), 177C (7/16″) and 180CL (1/2″).
