Ever wondered how chipbreaker tooling works?

Why are they good for cutting plywoods & solid timber?
As a tool rotates and its cutting edge impacts a workpiece, material is sheared off from a part, creating chips.
When that cutting process is interrupted, as is the case with breaks in the cutting portion of the tool, chips become smaller in length and are thus easier to evacuate. Inefficient chip evacuation can lead to chip recutting and heat build up.
This chipbreaker slots also help to shear the fibres and prevent grain pullout in products like plywood.
Because the chipbreakers are offset flute-to-flute, a proper, flat surface finish is achieved as each flute cleans up any excess material left behind from previously passed flutes.
