New to the world of using Carbide Burrs ???? Here’s a couple of basic guidelines.

­General Use

~ Adjust speeds as needed for optimum performance. Use slower speeds for harder materials. Use higher speeds for cutting with smaller diameter burrs.

~ Do not run above maximum speeds. This can cause premature wear and damage to burr teeth.

~ Do not run below minimum speeds. This can cause chipping.

~ All other tools and collets should be in good condition.

~ Not for use in portable drill motors.

~ Apply constant pressure while cutting.


General Recommendations for Solid Carbide Burr Speeds

Diameter      Recommended RPM

1/16                  60,000 – 90,000

1/8                    45,000 – 50,000

3/16                  35,000 – 40,000

¼                     30,000 – 35,000

Use the right Burr for the right job !!!!!
