2 Flute TAPERED Ball Nose Carbide Mill (for 3D Carving)

$14.95 - $24.95
(11 reviews)

The most versatile bit you need to have in your set is the tapered ball nose. Capable of engraving wood, plastics, soft metals and even steel, these are a high quality bit and withstand a beating even with a R0.25mm tip. Some uses of this bit include cutting PCB tracks, engraving lettering in ABS or even steel plates, 3D carving of aluminum or brass and much more.

Suitable for

  • Plastics (ABS, acrylic, HPDE etc.)
  • Wood
  • Steel
  • Soft Metals (use an appropriate coolant)
  • Ferrous metals (use an appropriate lubricant)

Adam’s Tips

Avoid a deep depth of cut to improve the finish of your material and increase the feed rate to make up for lost time. Also, use a coolant when cutting soft metals and lubricant when cutting ferrous metals to ensure the cleanest finish.

    Amazing quality of cut, delivering laser like precision on fine engravings. Will be buying more to keep stock on the shelf as this is now part of my essential tooling.

    No more roughing

    Fantastic for single pass bass reliefs, no need for roughing with the deep cut that it is able to give. Superior finish, virtually no sanding once job is completed.

    These were just as ordered. Cut well and keep a good edge and are very well suited to my cnc 3d work. Price is excellent in comparison with other similar items on the market and the contact and after sales service is good.
