Tips & Tricks Issue 80: Deburring tool

Deburring tool 

Sometimes a tool from one craft works well for another. I’ve found that a hand deburring tool, used to clean up rough edges in metalwork, has great applications in the woodshop. The tool’s sharp cutter rotates freely in its handle and cuts a small chamfer on edges and corners. In metalworking, it’s used to remove burrs caused by the cutting tool, and can serve essentially the same purpose in woodworking, removing exit tearout from mortises or holes, and quickly scraping away rough edges on shop plastics and metals. Hand deburring tools can be purchased online from places like mscdirect.com or amazon.com.  n
