Tenon Cutters and Sawtooth Bits

We carry a full range of tenon cutters from the twin blade industrial models which will put a 60 degree shoulder on the tenon to the single blade model which will put a radiused shoulder on the tenon. Tenon cutters are useful for spindle and railing work and for furniture manufacturing.


DESIGN. BUILD. USE. The heat treated T6 aluminum body with rolled threads to retain the blade is very light and durable. The easy to use leveling bubble and depth setting assure perfect tenons every time.

The TTG tenon maker cuts a 60 degree shoulder tenon in record time. For those of you who are tired of wrestling with a radius shoulder cutter or simply want the best go no further. Some of our customers cut up to 400 tenons a day with this cutter and are amazed at the 18% tungsten blade life.

This CNC machined tool is made to exacting standards to assist you in building beautiful log furniture and railings that you can be truly proud of.


Finally a multi-tenon cutter that really works. We offer two multi-cutters that each will quickly cut three different sizes of tenon. Start with the larger diameter, and if you want a different smaller size, simply drop in the collar and secure it. Move the blade into place and the unit is ready to use. Cut a perfect 60 degree shoulder every time.

Features and Benefits

  • Machined from tough T6 heat treated aluminum for durability
  • Single replaceable & sharpenable blade
  • Tenon length controlled by moving shaft in or out, and set screw lock
  • 1/2" chuck end on a 3/4" keyed shaft
  • Levelling bubble

Our industrial tenon cutters are self-centering and feature twin carbon steel blades which enable them to quickly produce an appealing and professional looking tenon with a 60 degree shoulder. We carry two different brands each with their own features and benefits. For maximum efficiency and safety, the drill used should have a maximum RPM of 500. For tenons 2” and larger, a ¾” drill is recommended. A countersink is also available to flare out the hole drilled for the tenon allowing it to accept the tapered shoulder of the tenon. This allows for a stronger and tighter shoulder fit especially on rails.


Features and Benefits:

  • Machined from high grade industrial aluminum for strength and durability.
  • Twin high carbon steel blades for quick cutting action.
  • Blades replaceable and sharpenable.
  • Shaft acts as a stop with set screw for consistently same length each time.
  • Blades butt against shoulder for easy set.
  • Built in level.
  • Choice of ½” or ¾” shaft.

The taper countersink (#B) is used to flare out the front of the hole drilled out for the tenon. This allows the fitting of the tenon and the shoulder thus creating a stronger fit especially on rails.
