Item Details

For use with Hougen® Portable Magnetic Drills and many competitive models on materials up to 325 BHN. They are made of M2 TiN Coated high speed steel and are precision ground for excellent performance throughout the cut and long tool life. They require less horsepower and thrust to cut, and last much longer than traditional holemaking methods. "12,000-Series" cutters have a 3/4" diameter double-flatted shank. Modified end tooth geometry is also available for drilling in stacked plate applications. For extended tool life and lower cost per hole "12,000-Series" Cutters are resharpenable.


  • M2 TiN Coated high speed steel material
  • "12,000-Series" cutters with a TiN Coating increases tool life, reduces friction, and operates at cooler temperatures. For materials up to 325 BHN (34.5 HRC) or gummy materials.
  • Precision ground & fully fluted provides better chip evacuation, requires less horsepower & offers better performance in deeper holes
  • 3/4" double flatted shank is very rigid & offers up to 2 times the tool life as compared to quick change tool mounting on competitive products
  • Only a thin area of material touches the outside of the hole which provides for less friction and a better hole finish
  • Patented hougen-edge geometry provides faster, smoother cuts, with less chatter
  • Tapered inner diameter provides a relief area between the slug & cutter to reduce horsepower & improve slug ejection
  • Up to 10 cutting edges distribute the cutting load evenly to maximize feed rates
  • The slug offers a higher scrap value than loose chips
