PEANUT® Cutter

  • Available in 3 different shank sizes:

> 1/2 inch​

> 12 mm

> 8 mm

  • Required for all PEANUT® components

  • Made from solid carbide

  • Max RPM 14,000 (CNC application)

The PEANUT® cutter is a T-shaped cutter with a domed head and produces the PEANUT® slots. The PEANUT® cutter creates a keyhole slot which has an undercut, the PEANUT Component inserts into the slot and slides along the undercut to clamp two panels together.

The PEANUT® slot is required for all PEANUT® connectors. The cutter is precisely machined from 1/2” solid carbide rods and cannot be resharpened. To create an 8mm or 12mm PEANUT Cutter, the 1/2” PEANUT® cutter goes through a second operation to grind the shank down to size.

 

For machines or routers which are unable to use the current PEANUT Cutter shank sizes, we recommend purchasing a collet.
