Bitsetter Useable Bits

Hi Guys,
I am looking at purchasing a Bitsetter, I have been using the G-Code splitter and i’m allways somewhere around 0.4mm out when Zeroing my Z between the V-bit and Flat endmill. I have a bitzero but obviously this is no use with Amana’s replaceable blade V-Bits.

Can someone tell me exactly what bits wont work with a Bitsetter before I invest the money on importing it to the UK, shipping etc.
Thanks in Advance,

I think the only bits I’ve seen that might have issues are the wasteboard flattening bits. Since there’s a recess in the middle of the bit where the bit zero should take a measurement.
V bit should work fine as it will depress the button in the center of the endmill.

Hope that helps.


My only concern is that with the bit blades being replaceable I dont want to first use it and it snap the blade :stuck_out_tongue: it would be upsetting xD.
Hopefully someone that’s used the bit with it will comment.
Thanks for your info though buddy :slight_smile:

You won’t have any issue with those bits. The contact with the bit setter is gentle and won’t damage the blades, in my experience.

Thanks for the reply, im waiting on them coming back in stock now, there is a company in the UK with 1 in stock but they refuse to reply to emails and facebook messages so im scared to give them my money xD

Thanks for that, I have an amana surfacing bit that a design like that would work great for however surfacing isnt much of a worry to me, i’ll take off whats needed to get the thing smooth and good to go :stuck_out_tongue:
the V bits are my main concern but hopefully will work fine for me and not destroy my bits :stuck_out_tongue:

I haven’t had any trouble using the replaceable amana vbits. It’s usually my fault when I break and edge/tip, never the Bitsetter.
