Peanut Cutter with 1/2" Shank


The PEANUT® slot is required for all PEANUT connectors.

The PEANUT Cutter creates a keyhole slot which has an undercut, the Peanut Component inserts into the slot and slides along the undercut to clamp two panels together. The PEANUT cutter is a T-shaped cutter with a domed head and produces the PEANUT slots.

The cutter is precisely machined from 1/2” solid carbide rods and cannot be resharpened. To create an 8mm or 12mm PEANUT Cutter, the 1/2” PEANUT cutter goes through a second operation to grind the shank down to size. For machines or routers which are unable to use the current PEANUT Cutter shank sizes, we recommend purchasing a collet.
