Plug Cutters

Plug Cutters are for creating plugs to cover up and conceal screw heads. When drilling screw holes with carbide tipped countersink bits, it creates a deeper hole that enables a screw head to be inserted below the surface. Allowing plugs to be inserted into the piece and then sanded down creating a flat and clean surface. They are also commonly for use in filling any counterbored holes that you have made. Using these products allows you to use the same timber materials throughout a project, making them easily disguisable. It also eliminates overconsumption of wood filler. In short, these products cut a tapered hole enabling a snug fit. They do not have a centre spur, so it is best to use them in a drill press. Available from Swiftfix in brands Famag and Heller.
