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

Product description could have the dimensions outlined. I tought i ordere 2mm wide bit but now looking at specs states R2.0 so its probably 4mm
A Fabulous bit - but it doesn’t come in a variety of colours. Fast delivery makes it a pleasure to deal with this crew.
Delivered quick - works a treat
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.
Thanks to Adams great advice, this is now my go to bit! Love it.
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.
An A1 rated and affordable product.
You cant beat these bits, great. and they hold their edge well.
This ball nose bit is excellent for finishing cut, minimal sanding required, I do recommend this bit.
