These are the Best Bit's I have tried for Shading.

(I used them on the Last 5 Shaded Carves)

They Are Cheap, but Powerful.... Goes through Foam like Butter...

(This Years Gemmy's Have Shitty Paint, I would not use these on those kins)
Every bit was getting Caked up on the Gemmy.

Funkins - No Issue at all with these Bits.


Only $3.99 + 0.59 Shipping. (order a Few Sets)
They are Shipped From China.... (I got them just over a week)

I wonder if humidity has an effect on bits loading up with paint?

I live in the high mountain desert where humidity is non-existent and I don't experience loading at all.

I cleaned this Thread Up, the Thread Topic is On the Recommended Bits,
That I Personally tested and Recommended.

So I removed the Post about Paint, Other Bits, etc...
If Anyone wants to Recommend Something Different Start a new Thread.

Over the Years this Site Has Taught 1000's of people How to Carve, and what Tools to Use.

So now these Bits - Have the Thumbs Up :thumb_up: From (3) Master Carvers

St0ney, Doh and Ken !

I ordered a couple sets and got them last week. They are excellent! Almost too good, I almost went too deep when I started.

I use electrical tape to establish depth of cut by wrapping the shank.
