After you saw or drill a piece of plastic or metal, how do you remove sharp burrs or ease sharp edges? A lot of users turn to hand files, grinding tools, or sanding tools, which will get the job done, but deburring tools are often quicker and easier to use.
Shaviv’s Mango II deburring tool set comes with a handle, blade holder extension, and a variety of deburring blades. The Mango II M-style blade holder can be used with industry-standard “B” and “E” style blades as well.
- B10: best for steel and aluminum
- B20: best for brass and cast iron
- B30: best for tubing and sheet metal
- E100: best for steel and aluminum
- E111: similar to E100, but with thinner nose; best for very small holes
- E200: best for brass and cast iron
B-blades are considered “standard duty,” and E-blades are “heavy duty.” These blades are great for use on straight edges, holes, and sheet metal.
To my knowledge, Shaviv deburring tools and accessories are all still made in Israel.
The set is priced at around $18 via Amazon, which is reasonable for what you get. I have yet to find a telescoping deburring tool starter set with 6 blades for less.
If you want to spend less and don’t see the need for a telescoping holder, McMaster Carr part number 4253A16 is a great value Noga-branded set. The price comes out to about the same with shipping.
You can also buy a Mango II handle with 10x B10 blades for $15 via Amazon, but I find the variety set to be more versatile. If or when you need additional B10 blades, that’s when the B10 combo pack set is a great buy. That way you essentially get plenty of replacement blades and a free extra handle. Personally, I prefer the heavier duty E-series blades.
