    Default New style 1/16 carving bit?

    I ordered a new 1/16 carving bit BCR062P and it is different than the original that came with the CarveWright. It carves great but the new one is longer and has different flutes as shown in the photos.

    Just curious if this was a design change or did I get the wrong bit?

    No its the right bit. As far as design change, I don't think there was a change. It just looks like the newer one was set further into the hard-pressed adapter than your older one.

    Looks different to me. Tighter flute pattern and a lot more cutting surface.

    On second look, the flute still is a little different. Same bit though...

    Does tighter flutes mean hotter bit?
