SUVA's diamond burs provide reliable cutting action for shaping and carving lapidary minerals and gemstones, glass, opals, porcelain, metals, or other hard materials with your Foredom or Dremel rotary tool.

Kits are available in electroplated and sintered construction. Sintered burs outlast standard electroplated lapidary burs by 5-10 times. When using valuable sintered burs, be sure to maintain and re-shape the cutting heads with a Diamond Re-Shaping Block. You can further extend the life of your diamond burs with the optional use of 412 Slick Lube diamond tool lubricant.

Use these burs before finishing with Diamond Pacific Nova Sanding Points and felt burs charged with your favorite lapidary polish or phenolic burs with diamond paste.

Specifications

All burs are constructed with a shaped diamond head mounted to a 44.5mm HP 3/32"/2.35mm shank fitting standard Dremel, Foredom, or other electric rotary micro motors. Use burs at 8000rpm max. Sizes are stated in approximate head width, widest point x head height.

Burs are color-coded for easy grit identification:

  • Super-coarse (black, 70/80 mesh ISO 544) good for texturing on all kinds of stones and metals. Please note these super-coarse burs are VERY aggressive for bulk removal and rapid pre-forming and are not suitable for detail work.
  • Coarse (green, 100 mesh ISO 534) used for aggressive cutting on quartz materials, porcelain, and alloys.
  • Medium (blue, 170 mesh ISO 524) used for multi-purpose cutting of metals, stones, porcelain and enameling.
  • Fine (red, 325 mesh ISO 514) used for smooth aggressive final shaping, pre-polishing, and metals trimming.
  • Extra-fine (yellow, 600 mesh ISO 504) used for fine finish grinding as pre-polish
  • Please note these colors differ from Inland brand burs
