It’s a cinch

Make your life easier with the Tusk Carbide Burr.

Make your life easier with the Tusk Carbide Burr.
Toolmaking, metalwork, model engineering, or general deburring is a cinch with the double-cut design, which allows for rapid stock removal in harder materials.
Left-hand flutes reduce pulling action, giving better operator control so you can be confident on the job. The Tusk Carbide Burr also makes operations cleaner, so it’s a win-win all round.
Available in 6, 8, 10, and 12mm shanks in a number of shapes, and sold separately or in a convenient 10-piece pack for RRP $220.

Man of metal

Metal is Bill Martel’s passion. He realises his own dreams in metal and those of his customers out of a very large “shed” in Plimmerton, the engine room of his business, Metalmorphic.
During 17 years of high-precision work, he and his team have made all sorts of furniture, balustrades, ornamental light shades, and more, even a 17th-century wrought iron sundial, four metres in diameter, which they “cut up into little pieces” and reassembled to correspond with the southern hemisphere.

Introducing the new TUSK Ceramic Strip Disc

The fibres are embedded with coarse grade silicon carbide ensuring aggressive removal of surface applications such as rust, corrosion, epoxy resin, and paint without loading or damaging the metal surface leaving a fine finish.

Making a die nut

A die nut is created with interrupted sections of thread around its internal diameter. Die nuts are simply screwed onto the threaded part. As they are wound down, they cut away any of the screw thread that is bruised (bent over) or out of line. A die nut cuts irregularities and scrapes off the dirt from the thread it is being used on so needs cutting edges, which are formed by the cut-away places.
