Grooving Tools

Grooving tools cut special grooves in timber and are essential for the installation of split ring timber connectors. The groves created by the tool are half the depth or the split rings and match their beveled shape. Grooving tools can be used with either a drill press or a ¾” heavy duty portable drill. The tool consists of two parts, the cutter head and the pilot.  The pilot is inserted into the previously drilled hole which properly aligns the cutting blades and creates a concentric groove around the bolt hole.
