The single-angle cutter contains side-cutting teeth on the flat side of the
cutter. The angle of the right or left cutter edge is usually 30, 45, or
60. Double-angle cutters have included the angles of 45, 60, and 90.
SINGLE-ANGLE MILLING CUTTERS.
Concave and convex milling
cutters (figure 30 on the following page) are formed tooth cutters shaped to
produce concave and convex contours of one-half circle or less. The size of
the cutter is specified by the diameter of the circular form the cutter
Corner-rounding Milling Cutter. The corner-rounding milling cutter
(figure 30) is a formed tooth cutter used for milling rounded corners on
workpieces up to and including one-quarter of a circle.
The size of a
cutter is specified by the radius of the circular form the cutter produces,
as with concave and convex cutters.
