Amana Tool 46202-K, Down Cut, 2 Flute, 1/4″ Shank CNC Bit


OK folks, if you are at my store I think you probably trust me and can see some of the authority that I have in the CNC world. With that said, THIS IS IT, this is the best bit I have ever owned. Nothing I have had has even come close and with the exception of one small competitor, this will remain my best bit! That competitor is the same bit (just longer)! That bit is the 46502-K, and that is only because I cut thick boards some times. Works great for:

  • Hard Woods (I like using Hickory)
  • MDF
  • Plywood

Hill Country CNC & Woodworking IS an affiliate marketer for Tools Today but that does not affect my choice of this bit. It is the BEST.

Solid Carbide Spektra™ Extreme Tool Life Coated Spiral Plunge Down-Cut Router Bits with special unique carbide with nACo® nanocomposite coating for longer lifetime in wood, plywood and laminate.


Spiral-flute bits combine a shearing action in cutting with an augering action in chip clearance. The shearing action yields an especially clean accurate cut while the augering action clears chips from the cut.

The ‘Down-Cut’ cuts from the surface down leaving a smooth edge at the surface.

Special unique carbide grade increased clearance geometry and razor-sharp cutting edges with polished flutes provide a superior finish and longer tool life especially in abrasive materials. Great for production settings and excellent for creating grooves and dado cuts in particleboard plywood and laminate. Primarily used on CNC machines and other automatic routers. Can be used with handheld and table-mounted portable routers.

Amana Tool Spektra™ bits feature a nACo® nanocomposite coating with an extreme nanohardness and heat resistance. With a brilliant, distinctively-tinted coloring, nACo provides additional improvements in four critical aspects of router tooling.

  • nACo coating is an micro-thin ceramic coating which enables the tool’s cutting edge to retain crucial sharpness and lubricity. This provides longevity and produces cutting results of the highest quality.
  • Coatings prevents high heat and oxidation which is detrimental to cutting tool performance.
  • Multi-colored hues, while attractive, will dissipate upon use and yet coating will remain fully effective.
  • nACo offers approximately 4,500 Vickers for impressive solid hardness on cutting areas of the tool, for an increase up to 2.5 times compared to uncoated bits.

Excellent for Cutting:

  • Laminate
  • Melamine
  • Melamine Particle Board
  • MDF
  • Veneered Plywood
  • Wood

Note: Blue based color dissipates immediately upon use. nACo® nanocomposite coating will not wear off.
