Used in sign-making and detail work, V-bits are great for carving intricate engravings on a wide range of materials. V-bits add depth and dimension where the same result cannot be achieved with a flat bit. Make light work of softer woods with 2 flutes to achieve an exceptional finish and hold that tip for longer on soft metals.
- All wood types - MDF/HDF, soft and hardwoods, plywood
- Plastics - ABS, traffolyte & acrylic/perspex
- Non-ferrous metals - brass, aluminium, copper, bronze
- Aluminium Composite
- Signboard fiberglass and composites
The sharper the angle the more likely you have a chance of chipping the tip. This is less likely on timbers but almost certain on metals. If you do cut on metals, use a bit of cutting fluid/ lubricant to achieve a cleaner finish. V-bits like to be run shallow but can be feed relatively fast.
