Shank Diameter

Shank Diameter
  Diameter of shanks.
Large diameter cutter shanks are inherently stronger and therefore less susceptible to side deflection. Having a larger surface area, they provide a better grip in the collet, making them less prone to release and turning. Whenever economically possible, always use the largest shank diameter available for a specific cutter. It also follows that deeper cuts can be made in relation to the router power available. Shanks should also be of the correct hardness to prevent scoring, a problem that often becomes apparent with poor quality cutters.
