    Default Just got these on ebay will they work?

    Hi All,
    I just got these on ebay
    NEW 10 3/16IN. HIGH SPEED STEEL TOOL BITS E856
    REX AA MADE IN USA. PREMIUM HIGH SPEED STEEL. 3/16X21/2.
    I was thinking they would make good gravers?
    I only paid 4.95 + 6.00 shipping for all 10 so i guess if they don't work i will not be out much.
    thanks

    The steel is fine but the size most square graver blanks are is 3/32. I bought some 1/8 and they work ok but it requires more time grinding them. I think you may find the 3/16 too thick if you are using them in GRS or Air-Graver tools.

    Threefinger, I have used lots of 1/8 " but I cut with hammer.Lots more grindin' like the other guys said but virtually no flex when cutting if left a bit long. never tried 3/16" but would work with LOTS of grinding.
