I would like to give my 2 cents on a burr that I JUST started using to shape the concaved surfaced of my custom fly fishing nets. I was looking for a faster/easier way than using scrapers, rasps, and sanders. It’s a Carbide Abrasive 1” Sphere Burr by King Arthur. This Sphere Burr fit flex shafts, mini die grinders and air grinders and has a 1/4” shank x 1” diameter. It’s also available in European 6mm shanks.
I use it on the lowest setting of my Rotozip which is 15K rpm. This speeds up my handle shaping time by at least 15-20 minutes each! This was EXACTLY what I was hoping for. The diameter was even perfect. All Hail King Arthur! LOL!
I was really skeptical that it would load up burn, but I was very impressed with its ability to remove wood and FAST! It has not loaded up on me yet and I have roughed out two handles with it: Claro walnut & Maple Burl.
Here is a link to the part. At $24.99 + 8 something for shipping, this was a heckuva deal for me.
