The Various Shapes of Carbide Burrs and How To Use Them

Do Not Apply Too Much Pressure
As with all drill bits and burrs, let the burr do the work and apply only a little pressure otherwise the cutting edges of the flutes will chip away or become smooth too quickly, reducing the life of your burr.
Barrel Shape Mini Carbide Bur are Harder Than HSS Burrs
Our Carbide Burrs are machine ground from a specially chosen grade of carbide. Due to the extreme hardness of the Tungsten Carbide they can be used on much more demanding jobs than HSS (High Speed Steel).
Carbide Burrs also perform better at higher temperatures than HSS so you can run them hotter, and for longer.
HSS burrs will start to soften at higher temperatures so carbide is always a better choice for long term performance.
What Are The Advantages of Tungsten Carbide Burrs?
Use for long production runs
High stock removal
Ideal for using on many hard and tough materials
Ideal for Deburring, finishing, carving, shaping and smoothing
Keep The Carbide Burr On The Move
When using your carbide burr try not to keep it still for too long as this will prevent the burr from digging and jabbing into your material causing unsightly marks and roughness.
End on an ‘up’ stroke for a smoother finish to your work.
