Tips for use:

  • use a 2.5 mm drill bit for the pilot holes keeping the desired hole angle as the final result
  • use the cutter on both sides, outside and inside, to avoid tearing the wood being careful to maintain the same inclination to match the cuts
  • if you feel the need you can lubricate the cutting edges with solid soap like Marseille
  • periodically you can sharpen the cutting edges with shaped Japanese waterstones like King Stone 711201 or 711204 in various grits
  • PRACTICE ON SPRUCE SLABS WITH THE SAME THICKNESS OF THE PLATES BEFORE USE
