  • Deburring set

    I have a Shaviv deburring tool. It did not last long since it's all plastic. The shaft where you insert the blade got very loose quickly.
    While it lasted I actually used it a lot.

    Enco has a Shaviv deburring set on sale now for $70.

    It looks like a good all around set. The handle and blade holders are metal so it should last.

    Do you guys think this tool worth investing $70?

    I have all Noga deburring tools and use them all pretty frequently. It is much easier in my opinion to debur using the hand tools. I know I paid more over all than $70 for mine but that is mainly since I have a multitude of holders that I can just pick up and use rather than change attachments using a single holder. The price seems fair to me considering what it will do for you.

      For less than $6.00, why not just replace the blade holder? http://www.use-enco.com/CGI/INPDFF?PMPAGE=245&PMCTLG=00 The description you linked to says, plastic handle, plastic blade holders. If it included a second handle, the set could do double duty. I prefer and have several handles, which I keep outfitted with various blades and deburring countersinks.

          Id recommend getting some of the higher end holders like the mango ones, they are really nice to use, and you can tell using them the first time that the handle is not gonna loosen up any time soon:

          I think they are compatable with that $70 kits inserts btw, So you could buy the kit and some spare handles. You'll want to just have some handy without exchangeing handles..

          PS: the mango handles can also store blades etc in the handle, And that insert can be set very close or very extended, as needed/desired, They also make 0 length inserts for the basic deburring blade types.

              Note the L postfix denotes left handed blades very useful for deburring up to the other side of material..

                I never thought about it much. I figured since they swiveled and appeared to be ground equally on both sides they worked for both. I have to come up with creative way of my own to use the right-handed version since I always use them with my thumb and "pull cut". Pushing doesn't work as well for me so I have to turn the piece over to finish the rest of the same edge in a pull motion.

                  IIRC the ones ground on both sides are intended for cast iron and maybe brass and will indeed work both ways. For steel, plastic, aluminum, etc you should use the assymetrical ones with a little nib on one side (which makes them handed). At least, that's what I was told back when I was a deburring monkey in a machine shop all through highschool and college and it seemed to be based in truth.

                  Actually, it looks like the different shapes/uses/directions are listed on this PDF from Royal: http://www.royalprod.com/content/fil...s/00%20110.pdf
