Removing heels from cutters when carving...

Recommended Posts

Modifiying the back of the cutter by removing a portion of the heel does seem to reduce heat build up at the nose of a carving bar but a LOT!

 

You can do this for any size carving bar and any chain. We used a flap disc on a battery angle grinder which seemed to work well.
