How do you clean bits?


(Tony Dyer) #1

Just curious what you guys use to clean your bits after each use? I currently only cut poplar, pine, oak, and MDF with V-bits and flat carbide double flute end mills. Perhaps something none abrasive, like a brush? Or a solvent maybe? I’d like to get as much life out of these expensive little boogers as possible! Thanks

I use Trend Blade and Bit cleaner , soak for a little while and scrub with an acid brush if needed.

Denatured Alcohol may also work if you don’t have a lot of buildup.

Works almost instantly.
