HIGH-SPEED STEEL (HSS) 25mm BROACH CUTTERS
Broach cutters are another term for sluggers or annular cutters. They are a type of rotary cutting tool that has become extremely popular for cutting precision holes. Use with a magnetic drill or a morse taper adapter if available on a lathe. Broach cutter products are available in High-Speed Steel (HSS) or Tungsten Carbide Tipped (TCT) for even greater longevity.
The products are used in various industries including metal fabrication, engineering, and mechanical workshops. Just about any industry that has a requirement to drill holes. They are popular as the efficiency of using a broach cutter as opposed to a twist drill becomes more widely known. Not only are broach cutters becoming more popular, they are considerably less effort to use than a portable drill. With a twist drill bit, you are removing all of the metal from the material at the size of the bit. With broach cutters you are removing only the circumference of the hole, therefore less effort is required.
After drilling, a slug or solid core remains in the center of the material which is less mess and easily removed.
BROACH CUTTER IN USE
A broach cutter pin is essential equipment too, it ensures the magnetic drill is able to drill holes accurately and consistently. Working as a guide for the cutter also serves as a pathway for the cutting fluid.
Good quality broach cutters are particularly helpful when you are tasked to drill on difficult angles or even upside down. The magnetic base of the drill is particularly useful combined with the leverage of the handle.
Buy local products made from high-speed steel if possible as these are usually more durable and deliver the best results. Ensure you use a 25mm broach cutter pin for alignment and fluid flow to suit your 25mm broach cutters.
