The small pointed taper carbide bur is a versatile tool that allows you to access hard-to-reach and angled areas, making it perfect for creating feather barbules and hair. With its high durability, these long-lasting bits are nearly as durable as carbide-point bits.

The tool can be used to produce a relatively smooth surface on woods, and is available in fluted and cross-cut styles. Large bits with ¼”-diameter shafts are useful for roughing out carvings, while smaller bits can be used to add detail.

Plus, the bur can cut through wood, acrylic, plaster, and fiberglass, so you can tackle a range of projects with ease.

Whether you're a seasoned woodworker or just starting out, the small pointed taper carbide bur is an excellent addition to your toolbox.

The Small Pointed Taper Carbide Bur may sound like a mouthful, but the precision and accuracy it offers is worth getting excited about. With a tapered design, this bur reaches hard-to-reach areas with ease, making it a top choice for dental procedures and intricate metalwork.

Its small 3.1mm diameter at the base allows for intricate detail work, while the 2.3mm tip ensures a precise finish. With a length of 14.3mm and a 3/32 shank size, the bur is durable and easy to maneuver in tight spaces.

Whether you're a carver, dentist or a skilled metalsmith, the Small Pointed Taper Carbide Bur is a must-have tool in your arsenal.

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.
