The BI00811X will work for all types of car as it has the longest reach of all.

If using the 811F on R Type cars you have to use two cutting strategies one to rough some material away before finishing otherwise the cut depth can exceed the flute length of the cutter.

We have now standardised the cutter.

It is 3" long and has the longer cutting flutes.
