How to use a Carbide Burr
A user must place the spindle of the burr into a rotational power tool. The tool selected to use burrs with is a die grinder. If you are working with materials such as steel, stainless steel, cast iron, ferrous metals & non-ferrous metals then the user shoudl selected a tungsten carbide burr rather than a HSS burr.
Once the burr is safely placed in the tool the user can then turn the tool on; the burr will then start to rotate. After this the user should contact the burr to the workpiece where the stock removal can be begin.
