Sharp corners on the supporting body of the knife are prohibited, preventing injury to the user in areas where there is no knife. Each tool has a maximum safe speed; calculated by a computer program, that takes into account Read more

FARMINGDALE, NY- Amana Tool, manufacturers of industrial-quality tungsten carbide woodworking tools, today announced its In-Tech™ line of replaceable carbide insert knife router bits that bring industrial woodworking technology to portable router machines. The series comprises nine router bits that feature industrial-quality replaceable carbide knives instead of standard brazed carbide tips.

The In-Tech replaceable knives are made of a harder sub-micro grade carbide than those used on standard brazed router bits. This higher grade of carbide significantly increases the life of the router bit and makes the bits ideal for use in harder types of materials such as MDF and chipboard. By replacing Read more
