make plugs undereizc. The combination leads to ill-fitting plugs that arc very noticeable in your finished work. Snug Plug cutters are designed to cut slightly tapered plugs; the first of the plug is the stated size (1/4", -Vi6'\ etc.) and then flares out at a 3° included angle. Unlike regular plug cutters, they also shave the plug sides as they cut, producing very smooth plugs. You just tap a plug into a hole until you meet resistance, then cut off the excess. You will then have a plug that fits perfectly, with a nearly invisible line between the plug and the workpiece. These plug cutters are carefully reamed after hardening to ensure perfect concentricity. It is difficult to believe how nice a plugging job you can do until you actually use one. W shanks. Patented.
