Various burs are used in the windshield repair business. So, how do you select the right bur for the job and get the most mileage out of that bur?
The first enemy of bur service life is heat. Because the drilling head on these tools is small, it does not take much friction to build up a considerable amount of heat in the metal. If you’ve ever mistakenly touched one after using it you know what I mean. They can get hot! Drilling at a high speed or for a prolonged period of time both contribute to heat build. The larger the drilling head of the bur the better it will be able to withstand the effects of heat which is what makes the Tapered Carbide Bur a good all-around choice.
