A stagger-tooth bit has two cutting edges, each only half the flute length, located 180 deg apart, one high, one low. The result is a tool that combines the speed and chip clearance of a one-flute bit with the strength and balance of a two-flute bit.
This "opposite-shear" configuration features a down-shear edge and an up-shear edge. On a through-cut, it shears down on both surfaces at the same time.
It is excellent for working double-sided melamine, plywood, laminates, and veneers, as well as solid-surface materials.
