Used in sign-making and detail work, V-bits are great for carving intricate design in detail on a wide range of materials. V-bits add depth and dimension where the same result cannot be achieved with a flat bit. These are a 1 flute cutter so the finish on softer material will leave a slight burr.
- Plastics (ABS, acrylic, HPDE etc.)
- Soft Metals
A V bit is a great alternative to a small diameter straight cutter in engraving very fine detail. Use a smaller degree bit with a finer tip to achieve width of cuts smaller than 0.5mm. It is advisable to test on some scrap your carve to dial in the desired result.
