Whiteside SC71 is an engraving bit designed for small CNC machines. It features a 30-degree cutting profile, a 1/32" flat point tip and a 1/4" shank, and is perfect for engraving and sign-making. In 1970, the Whiteside Machine Company began manufacturing special parts and making repairs for the furniture industry in Hickory, NC. As the company's reputation grew, they expended their operations to include product offerings for businesses and hobbists, including high-quality router bits. Today, Whiteside router bits are the undisputed favorite among woodworkers.
