The ⅛” polished O-flute bit is a great go-to bit for making shallow cuts in a wide variety of acrylics and non-ferrous metals. The polished flute prevents nasty chip build-up that can compromise cut quality and decrease cutter longevity, and the shorter profile contributes to overall durability. Great for cuts up to ¼” in depth.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, this bit will fit the ¼” collet that is supplied with Origin.
As a general rule of thumb for cutting wood, it’s best to never cut deeper than the diameter of the bit. So for a ¼” bit, you should not cut deeper than ¼” in a single pass. Because every material is different, it’s best to perform test cuts to find the ideal pass depth and cut specs when working with a new material.
This depends on the material you are cutting. You can find more information on recommended settings for Origin based on material types in this article: material recommendations.
The up-spiral design pulls material up and out of your cuts. This can leave a little fuzz on the top edge of your material but this is easily removed with a quick rough-up with fine grit sandpaper. Adjacent spoilboards are always recommended when making cuts beyond the edge of your material to reduce tear-out.
Resin, sap, and adhesives will build up on your cutter edge over time. This generates more friction on your bit and accelerates edge degradation. Keep your bits clean with a small brass brush, citrus cleaner and a rag.
