Wether you are carving bonsai trees or any form of wood with power tools you are going to need a range of tools. Any carving project has a large number of facets and sadly it's not possible for one cutting tool to do it all. Our new solid carbide T-Kerf™ burrs have proven to be a supremely useful tool for external shaping, sculpting, surface texturing, grooving and cleaning and will cut pretty much anything. Having a fine helical cut tooth design means T-Kerf burrs are very easy to use with absolutely no grabbing or kick back and a nice controllable cutting action that leaves a supremely smooth fluff free finish. T-Kerf burrs cut nicely either with the grain or across it, however in common with lots of tools they do not cut down onto end grain in most circumstances. We recommend a fairly slow running speed 8-14,000 RPM being ideal, higher speeds cause the tools to get hot which in turn causes clogging. Used at these fairly low speeds the burrs will cut most materials from soft sappy green wood to old seasoned hardwood and even metals like cast iron, brass, copper and aluminium without clogging. If you are looking for an easy to use cutter for sculpting, shaping and texturing without risk of losing a finger then T-Kerf carving burrs are exactly what you need.
T-Kerf burrs are available in either small shaft (3.2mm) to fit Dremel type hobby tools or larger 6mm shaft to fit die grinders. Because of the tools nice smooth cut rate they are ideal for running in flexible shaft machines like Foredom. The tools are also available in a range of head diameters from 12 to 25mm and widths from 2mm to 5mm.
