Good quality 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, for longer.
HSS burrs will start to soften at higher temperatures so carbide is always a better choice for long-term performance.
Use for long production runs
High stock removal
Ideal for using on many hard materials
Ideal for Deburring, finishing, carving, shaping, and smoothing welds, molds, dies, and forgings
Always ensure your burr shank is well inserted into your collet and clamped down tightly
Keep pressure light and keep the bur moving, focusing on the highest material first
Ensure your work is secured tightly to your workbench
Don’t snag or jam your burr into your work
Wear eye protection as a minimum, but better still use a full shield for your face
