Ofk500 question
« on: August 14, 2019, 08:15 AM »
I am looking at buying the ofk500 laminate trimmer and I’m struggling to find information about the cutter shank size the machine takes.

Is it 1/4” or 8mm?

Thanks

In Europe it is 8 mm.

It is neither of them. It uses proprietary cutters. It even doesn’t have a collet. Bits are fastened with a screw on the end of the bit.

Regards.
