I have the DCS551 Cut-Out tool. It came with two different cutting bits, but the instruction manual makes no mention of the bits, or what each bit is to be used for. One bit is longer than the other and, has a diffeent cutting surface. Do you have any informaion on this?

whats the shallowest depth you can get with this

Asked by: kyle
Hello Kyle Thank you for your contact. We apologize for any trouble or inconvenience in finding information. For best results, adjust the guide using the knob to allow the bit to protrude about 1/8&quot; (3 mm) past the material to be cut. Best Regards Sherri C DEWALT
