Hey guys, does anyone know if a 6mm shank can be used in a 1/4” collet? I recently bought an Auriou rasp, and I like it so much I decided I’d also like to have a powered version, so I wanna get one of their rotary rasps to use in my die grinder.
Problem is they seem to only come with 6mm shanks and my grinder (obviously) has a 1/4” collet. The difference is only .01378, but I guess this might be significant enough to pose a problem…definitely don’t want this thing flying out of the grinder while spinning.
If the answer to that question is “probably not,” does anyone know where I can find a 6mm collet that will fit my die grinder? I’ve looked but couldn’t find.
Does anyone have recommendations for another brand of HIGH quality carving burrs/rotary rasps (with 1/4” shanks)? I have a couple Kutzall burrs…they’re okay…would like to try something else.
