5200 - Low Helix Upcut Roughers


Vortex Series 5200 - Low Helix, Upcut, Rougher, Router Bits

Low Helix, Upcut, Rougher, Spiral Router Bits - (3 Flute), Solid Carbide - Vortex . These three flute roughing tools are designed for high feed rates on CNC routers and are used when surface finish is not important in dense materials such as hardwoods, particle board and plywood. The low helix design produces less lifting effect than standard upshear spiral bits.

These tools are very successful in CNC applications where the roughing bit makes the first cut, followed by a second cut using a profile type tool. This tool will produce a "rippled" edge cut and is extremely quiet and smooth cutting, even in heavy cuts and high feed rates.

Made in AmericaVortex Tool Company router bits, boring bits and CNC tooling are proudly made in the USA.
