Description

It is always difficult to fit plugs perfectly; any slight runout in your drill-press quill can make the holes oversize. Unfortunately, this runout will also make plugs undersize. The combination leads to ill-fitting plugs that are very noticeable in your finished work.

Snug-Plug® cutters are designed to cut slightly tapered plugs; the first 1/8" of the plug is the stated size (1/4", 5/16", etc.) and then flares out at a 3° included angle.

Unlike regular plug cutters, they also shave the plug sides as they cut, producing very smooth plugs. You just tap a plug into a hole until you meet resistance, then cut off the excess. You will then have a plug that fits perfectly, with a nearly invisible line between the plug and the workpiece.

These plug cutters are carefully reamed after hardening to ensure perfect concentricity. It is difficult to believe how nice a plugging job you can do until you actually use one. 3/8" shanks.

Patented. Resharpening instructions included.

The best plug cutters

If your building fine or even not so fine furniture a good quality plug is a must if your cutting plugs as a contrasting accent or to cover screw holes. The best plug cutters are designed to cut a tapered plug so when you glue it in, it produces a nice tight fit, as these cutters do. Even more essential if your trying to match grain pattern and wood color. I've used these cutters for years and they have performed supremely. These are hardened as well for long life.
