Tango Series 1/2" x 1-5/8" x 4 Upshear Rougher

Tango Series Solid Carbide 3 Flute Low Helix Upshear Rougher Tool

Materials: Solid wood, wood composite, plastic and composite materials

Application: The TU500.1625.33 roughing tool is designed for high speed cut out, slotting, sizing and profiling operations on single and multi-axis routers.  The 1/2" diameter x 1-5/8" length of cut makes for a very robust tool for axial depths of cut up to 3.25x tool diameter.  A low shear angle and fine pitch rougher profile minimizes part movement and material tear out making this tool an excellent choice for profile routing and pre-sizing materials up to 1-5/8" thick.  It is NOT recommended for part cut out applications when cutting thinner materials or for shallow axial depths of cut in slot, face or pocket routing applications.  We recommend part numbers TU375.1000.31, TU500.1000.31 and TU500.1375.32 which have shorter lengths for these applications.
