vertical shear bits
« on: June 29, 2020, 10:31:16 AM »
I've used a vertical shear bit quite a bit and really like the finish it produces and the fact it will remove a thou at a time.
 I came across this discussion of it which goes into quite a bit of detail.
 The use of a vertical shear bit for fine boring really caught my eye as something that could be rather handy.

I haven't read all the referenced material yet, but I will.
It looks like an excellent tool to have in the kit.
Thanks for passing it on.
