These tools are coated with a proprietary high performance *Astra coating* that allows higher speed & feed rates as well as 2x the extended tool life & increased lubricity in abrasive material

Jonathan's Hot Take:

This 60 degree V-Bit is really good at deep engravings because it has a narrower cutting edge when compared to a 90/45 degree engraving bit.

These bits provide the HIGHEST VALUE because the Astra Coating makes them last at least 2-4x longer than uncoated bits. This is one of those times that spending a little more upfront saves you a lot of money down the line.

Spiral bits perform 100x better and 100x longer than straight bits. I recommend staying away from straight bits in general, because they dull so much faster and their aggressive cutting profile can be much less safe.

What are Engraving V-Bit/V-Groove Bits?

V-bits produce a “V” shaped pass and are used for engraving, particularly for engraving letters and making signs. The small angles and tips provided on these V-shaped engraving bits produce narrow cuts and small, delicate engraving of lettering and lines.
