Hougen Manufacturing has released a new annular cutter kit, The RotaLoc Plus Master Kit.

This kit contains 14 different sizes of Hougen RotaLoc Plus cutters in the most popular sizes. Diameters included in the kit are: 11.11, 12.7, 14.3, 15.9, 17.5, 19, 20.6, 22.2, 23.8, 25.4, 27, 28.5, 31.7 and 38 mm (7/16, 1/2, 9/16, 5/8, 11/16, 3/4, 13/16, 7/8, 15/16, 1, 1-1/16, 1-1/8, 1-1/4 and 1-3/8 in.). Two pilots are also included in the kit and all the tools are individually protected in a high quality plastic case to safeguard cutting edges from collisions and damage.

RotaLoc Plus annular cutters are made from M42 HSS and are precision ground for hole making in materials up to 25 mm (1 in.) thick. They feature a bayonet style shank so cutter sizes can quickly be changed in seconds without the use of tools. Stack cut geometry is used on the cutting teeth which allows them to drill through single plate but also two or more pieces of steel at one time. The RotaLoc Plus cutters can be resharpened multiple times, with each time reducing the cost per hole.

The RotaLoc Plus Master kit complements the low profile HMD130 magnetic drill but the cutters can also be used on standard magnetic drills with an optional adapter.
