This tip is shaped like a spear. It is flattened and comes to a central point. Both rounded sides are sharpened, giving you twice as much time before you have to hone the edge. Push-pull is one of its great features for line burning. The 5-A is the shortest of the spear tips. It can be used in tight areas.
Note: Replaceable Tips require the use of a Replaceable Tip Handpiece, 146540, available separately.
Replaceable Tip Handpieces offer a less expensive way to have several tip styles. While more economical, they require slightly more care and maintenance, and can result in "lost time" when changing tips. This new model handpiece is an improvement over the old "sliplock" style in that it runs much cooler and the solid, silver brazed tips make better contact electrically in the handpiece. Old and new style tips are not interchangeable in their respective handpieces. Complete with cord and jack plug to fit all Detail Master units.
Fixed Tip Handpieces, unlike replaceable tip handpieces, do not lose efficiency due to oxidation build up in the removable connectors, and there is no need to wait for a "cool down" to change tip styles.
