Cutting stainless steel on a CNC router can be a challenging task due to the high spindle rpm found on routers. Onsrud Cutter has solved this problem by developing a line of tools, which are capable of running at high spindle speeds while providing good tool life. The combination of unique cutting geometry and coating allows stainless steel to be routed for sign, exhibit, and general sheet applications. The solid carbide tools are available in 1/8, 3/16, 1/4 and 3/8 in diameters and can be run at spindle rpm from 6,000 to 18,000. www.onsrud.com
