Default Re: Mortise Pal

The drill bit is actually an end mill ground similiar to the domino bits.



The lateral load will be on the bushing and not the drills bearings.

How good of a job does it do? Only someone who tries it can answer that. Mr. Lucas is doing a review on his site.

I won't be selling my Domino to buy one.Just thought it could be something that was more affordable and much slower.

This discussion reminds me of some of the things originally said about the Domi. A lot of assumptions and not a lot of substance.

Radial load support. Check.

Edge cutters. Check.

Only remaining (theoretical) objection: How does such a cutter do when running at 1/8 the speed of most other cutters doing a similar job?

I'll be interested to see what John Lucas comes up wth.

Looking at the cutting tool it appears the last 1/16 inch or so has the face ground flat. That would make sense as there is no point and the cut action shown was very shallow multiple passes. I was wrong about the point doing the cutting since there is no point. The face is flat so that the tool will not self feed downward while cutting. But, this compromises the shearing action of a normal endmill and it is not possible to se if there is clearance on the diameter.

You are right, John will have to give us a professional opinion.
