 Prepare for Wood Finishing with Saburr Carbide Rotary Tools from The ToolPost

The ToolPost is a supplier of top quality tools and equipment for woodturning, wood carving and woodworking which it delivers around the world. The extensive selection of power carving accessories available from The ToolPost online store at includes the Saburr Carbide Rotary Tools. These excellent cutting tools harness the technology which makes a carbide burr one of the most effective ways to quickly remove wood, resulting in tools which provide superior performance.

The Saburr Carbide Rotary Tool helps prepare for wood finishing by leaving a fine and smooth surface that is difficult to achieve with regular cutting tools. The carbide technology has been successfully applied to create a cutter with distinct points that are evenly distributed, which helps the tool to cut quickly and in a precise, controlled movement without clogging or snagging. Not only are these versatile rotary tools highly effective for cutting wood, but also for cutting through a whole host of materials (graphite, acrylic, epoxies, rubber, plastics, ice, fibreglass, soap stone, alabaster and even bone) leaving a smooth surface in every instance. Saburr Carbide Rotary Tools are not recommended for use on metals and ceramics, however. It is always advisable to wear eye protection when using power tools such as these burrs.

These tools have an impressive 'tick-list': they provide rapid stock removal; they are non-loading (resist clogging); boast a smooth operation while being more aggressive; are versatile and longer lasting. The range of Saburr Carbide Rotary Tools available at The ToolPost includes mounted points in a choice of shank sizes, cutting discs to mount on mini angle grinders (such as the Proxxon and Arbortech types), or on rotary carver hand-pieces, and sanding drums complete with mounting arbors. All of the tools in the range are available in a choice of grit grades to provide the requisite rate of timber removal and surface finish, bringing them to the top of the must-have list of many a woodturning and woodcarving aficionado.
