Snug plugs: fit plugs perfectly with Veritas' Tapered Wood Snug Plug Cutters
It's always difficult to fit plugs perfectly; any slight run-out in your drill press quill can make the holes oversize. Unfortunately, this run-out will also make plugs undersize. The combination leads to ill-fitting plugs that are very noticeable in your finished work. Snug-Plug cutters are designed to cut slightly tapered plugs; the first 3.2mm of the plug is the stated size and then flares out at a 3° included angle.
While some plug cutters become mishapen or have poorly designed tapered edges, Veritas' Tapered Wood Snug Plug Cutters maintain Veritas' tradition of quality and excellent performance, they're resharpenable and flare out at an ideal angle, meaning your plugs will always fit snugly.
- First 1/8" of plug is stated size (1/4", 5/16", etc.), then flares out at 3° included angle
- 3/8" round shank
- Cutters carefully reamed after hardening to ensure perfect concentricity
- Re-sharpening instructions included
Available in metric and imperial sets, as well as the 3 most common sizes
Unlike regular plug cutters, they also shave the plug sides as they cut, producing very smooth plugs. You just tap a plug into a hole until you meet resistance, then cut off the excess. You will then have a plug that fits perfectly, with a nearly invisible line between the plug and the work piece.
These plug cutters are carefully reamed after hardening to ensure perfect concentricity. It is difficult to believe how nice a plugging job you can do until you actually use one.
