Tormach Fab Lab: Working with Slitting Saws

Don’t forget about slitting saws when you have a part that calls for a deep slot. With a slitting saw, slots with a large depth-to-width ratio can be made both faster and straighter than with a long and skinny endmill.

There are two slitting saw arbor sizes available in our TTS toolholder lineup: 1″ and 1/2″. These are keyless arbors, so they will work with both keyed and keyless slitting saws. We also have a selection of HSS slitting saws to fit these arbors.
