STAR-M No. 5010A HSS Small Circle Cutter


STAR-M No. 5010A HSS Small Circle Cutter

This circle cutter offers two immediate benefits:

  1. You do not need to set the two cutters separately. Loosen the two star knobs and turn the two knurled screws to move the two cutter holders to the desired position. The cutter holders run on a screw thread. This provides a very much simpler and faster method for setting the desired hole diameter than is possible with conventional circle cutters. Once you have set the cutters to the right position you simply tighten the two star knobs again. The two cutter holders will wobble slightly even after tightening the star knobs, but this does not affect the accuracy. The play on the thread is necessary to eliminate the risk of damage.
  2. This is the handiest circle cutter we have on offer. The modest dimensions make it far easier to handle than the larger models. If you do not need to cut holes bigger than 75 mm in diameter this circle cutter is the best solution. It is optimal for switch boxes with a diameter of 68 mm. The compact design means you can set the drilling machine to a higher speed.

Cuts precise circles with a diameter of up to 75 mm in wood, wooden composites, particle board and plasterboard. Blades with inside and outside chamfers for clean and splinter-free hole edges. Supplied with allen key.
Boring diameter infinitely adjustable from 25 to 75 mm
Maximum drilling depth 28 mm from one side
Maximum drilling depth 56 mm from two sides
Speed max. 1500 min-1
We recommend that you start at a much lower speed and then gradually increase the speed until you reach the ideal speed for your material.
Shank 10 mm
