Cutter and rotary tool quality: To get the best results and longest tool life be sure to choose a good rotary tool and buy the best cutters you can. Cheap rotary tools use either a bulky chuck system or a cheap 4-jaw collet. Bits will not run true in these collets or chucks, resulting in bit run-out that causes vibration and greatly reduces the bits cutting ability, accuracy and life. All of our rotary tools use precision 3-jaw collets (or an actual Jacobs chuck in the #30 Foredom handpiece), resulting in a true-running bit that cuts efficiently, accurately and runs smoothly. All of the bits that we carry are very high quality, true-running bits that will last well when properly used and cared for. Remember - you get what you pay for, so there will always be a trade-off when you see a lower-priced bit. It is a good rule of thumb that the most expensive bits we sell are the most economical in the long run. Diamond burs cost less per running hour than rubies, and solid carbide stump burs are a lot less expensive per running hour than HS steel stump burs.
