This is the smallest tip that has a sharpened blade made on a 45º angle, with a point and a heel. It is used for intricate detail on head feathers. It is the tip most preferred by Laurie Lundell, champion carver, for the beautiful heads she carves and burns. The "heel" is essential for creating the softness in the head for which Laurie is famous. It is a good tip for making tight turns and for touching up burning errors. Song bird carvers find it particularly useful for burning those small errors.
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.
