CW3: 3/8" Fine Detail Carbide Cutting Wheel
This small 3/8” (9 mm) dia. Carbide cutting wheel is much smaller than the CW1 (1” / 25mm) and CW5 (1.5” / 38mm) and slightly larger than the 3/16” / 4.8mm) CW2. Like the smaller CW2, it is most useful for cutting and grooving in tight spaces on models, wood carvings large and small. The gritted face of this wheel, can be used for low-relief carving and smaller details.
Applications include modeling or decoys and woodcarving scrolls and the fine decorations in gourd carvings. Use the CW3 carbide burr for cutting, shaping and lo-relief detail work, in wood carvings, model ships, panel details and motor and servo fitting in RC aircraft etc.
The burr shape is based on feedback from professional modelers, woodcarvers and gourd artists.
