 Maintaining Your Bur

Maintaining your burs is essential to ensure they remain sharp, efficient and work optimally. One of the easiest things you can do to maintain your burs is to store them safely in a holder or box.

This prevents them from knocking into one another and becoming damaged. When using your burs, apply just enough pressure to get the job done without burning the bits. Overheating them can cause them to become brittle and snap.

Cleaning your carbide-point bits with a brass brush will prevent them from  clogging, while a wet white whetstick can be used to clean diamond bits. A neoprene rubber bar works wonders in removing dust from ruby bits, stones, and sanding discs.

Lastly, a diamond hone or dressing stone can reshape and clean stones for optimal performance. With a little care and attention, your burs will last longer and perform better, saving you time and money in the long run.
