Cleaning diamond burrs?

3 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has some tips on cleaning the sawdust out of some of my diamond burrs? I know if they were carbide, I could just burn it out, but unsure given whatever adhesive holds the diamond chips in if can do that, or solvent, or...?

Thanks!

They make a diamond bur cleaning stone. Might want to check one out. Just do a google search. They will clean out the burs without prematurely dulling them.

I just put my burrs in my Dremel and crank the RPMs all the way up. I then put the burr to a piece of hardwood like maple and hold it there until it smokes (literally). Turn it off and let it cool down for a couple of seconds. Brush it with a stiff toothbrush and you're ready to go again.
