  • 3 Fluted Flame Shaped Burr Bits

    I found these on Pinterest when looking for Wood carving Patterns . They have little Videos thru out the Pages and when I saw the Demo I thought I would give it a try . Used it today on Mahogany and it cut thru easy and Deep without any effort . They have 3 Flutes and not like the other ones that have many Flutes and get plugged up . Cost me a little less than $ 25.00 for the 3 Sizes . It takes from 2 -6 Weeks to receive , I think it's worth the wait . It takes a lot to impress me when it comes to Tools , these little Buggers do that . The Mere Fact that I'm posting about it tells it all . Oh! 1-IMG_0001.JPG the Shank is 1/8 " Merle

      Hi Joe , do your Tools have 3 Flutes , if so who made them ? They do really cut . You can actually Carve with them . Merle

        Thanks for the tip, Merle. I agree with JoePaulButler, wear your gloves! I chewed up a finger with a Kutzall bit a while back and it’s no fun. These look effective but a little scary.

          Yes, they do. They are ±3/16", 5/32, 1/8, & 7/64. Merle, not sure where I got them from, heck I have to leave a trail of chips from my studio to the bathroom, to find it . But I saw them advertised on the internet. & yes I said a trail of wood chip
          I use them more for roughing out, then go back with a knife and clean up. Maybe after using them for a while I'll try to do more refined work

            Hi Joe , yep they do remove the Wood but still easy to control . I'll find out more when I finish my Project because it has a lot of areas to be used on . Merle

                After watching that video, that very shrill noise is enough to keep me from trying these. It is akin to fingernails on a chalkboard to my ears. I'll stick with my chisels and the occasional use of a Saburrtooth bit to bail me out of the occasional spot where a chisel or (more likely) my lack of skill gets me in a jam.

                      Merle,

                      Thanks for bring these to our attention thinking they could help with roughing out. Had never seen them before.

                        Hi Ed, used it on Mahogany this Morning and went very well . I even tried Carving with it and as you said good for Roughing out even though the Finish isn't Bad . I used the Larger Bit , will use the Small ones later for Detailing . The Price makes it inviting to try . Merle

                          I got to poking around on eBay you can get these in sets 3,4,5,6 or 8mm.
