Default diamond burrs!!!!

I found these on ebay Sept26th, ordered them and they came yesterday
I bought the 120 grit. Used a couple for a few hours yesterday and so far they seem like pretty good quality.
I like the bigger size, 1/4" shaft and bigger head size. Sure saved on a lot of hand sanding.
His diamond burrs come in all different grits- 32 to 600, which is pretty cool!
I thought the price was decent too.
He has 1/8" shaft size also and they come in various grits too..
There are probably some shapes I won't use as often, but that's fine with me.

L.P.- your welcome!

Bob- the seller has a couple of pages. here's the link for the 1/8" shaft.

Charlie, thank you, that is a good buy! The thing about these is they come in so many grit sizes. 36- 600 grit. I have quite a few of harbor freight and like them, but seems like they are mainly 120 to 150 grit. The ebay ones make a nice compliment to the harbor freight ones.

Bob, in the upper left hand corner of ebay where it says "top seller" or something like that, it has- see other items, that will put you where you can see the rest of his stuff.
