    WTB approx 3" flycutter that takes replacement inserts.

    WTB approx 3" flycutter that takes replacement inserts.

    Looking for one I can use for wood on my router plane.

    Around 3-4" dia. Needs to fit Bridgeport R8 collets.

    What do you have?

    I used one of these a lot on my vertical mill and was always happy. Use a M43 bit and really speed it up:

    Got to have a good rake on the tool or it's going to foul as it cannot get ride of the removed stock which is usually stringy.

    Instead of mundane terms like "rake" - you should make your statements in reference to the "angle of keeness."

    It'll sound way cooler

    I know what you mean. Used to use terms like positive, and negative too when referring to "rake" but had to stop. My wife would overhear me mention that word and out to the tool shed she'd go fetching me a "rake" for the leaves.....

    You are very correct however in the explanation and to a lover of the "Machinery's Handbook" series, it's explained well.

    If the budget allows the tooling can be found or made easily. However using carbide inserts in wood with the cutters spaced 90 degrees apart is probably not what you are after in a finished product. Chip and tearout loading are going to impact your desired finish.
