How it Works
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.
Cuts approximately 6,500+ slots in MFC*
Available in 3 different shank sizes
Compatible with all solid wood PEANUT connectors
Recommended Max RPM 14,000 (CNC application)
Made from solid carbide
Compatible with CNC and router
The PEANUT® cutter is a T-shaped cutter with a domed head and produces the PEANUT® slots.
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.
