Big Kaiser’s C-Centering Cutter is a multifunction cutter capable of spot drilling, centering and chamfering. The indexable cutter uses a specialized insert that can start a hole from a solid piece, according to the company. It can perform spot drilling and 90-degree chamfering at the same time, or it can strictly be used for hole chamfering.

During spot drilling, the insert nose radius can be chipped with general cutters since the center has a peripheral speed of zero. The cutter’s coolant hole cools the cutting edge, which reaches high temperatures during spot drilling, and aids in chip evacuation.
