Hougen 12000 2 in Annular Cutter - 15/16 in

Hougen annular cutter are made from hardened M2 high speed steel and are precision ground for excellent performance throughout the cut and long tool life. They require less horsepower and thrust to cut, and last much longer than traditional holemaking methods. 12000 series cutters have a 3/4 in dia double-flatted shank and for extended tool life. 12000 series cutters are resharpenable. Modified end tooth geometry is also available for drilling in stacked plate applications.


  • Cuts holes faster
  • Longer tool life
  • Precision tooth geometry
  • For the widest range of materials
  • Resharpenable
  • Makes large diameter holes efficiently without the mess of chips
  • Hole produces a slug of material that could be used for another job
  • Precision ground and fully fluted provides better chip evacuation, requires less horsepower and offers better performance in deeper holes
  • 3/4 in double flatted shank is very rigid and offers up to 2 times the tool life as compared to quick change tool mounting on competitive products
  • Only a thin area of material touches the outside of the hole which provides for less friction and a better hole finish
  • Patented hougen-edge geometry provides faster, smoother cuts, with less chatter
  • Tapered inner diameter provides a relief area between the slug and cutter to reduce horsepower and improve slug ejection
  • Up to 10 cutting edges distribute the cutting load evenly to maximize feed rates
