Carvers need their tools performing at their peak. For power carvers that means clean burs. We have tried numerous products over the years without being very impressed. Within seconds of dropping a few pitch filled roughout burs, rubies and diamond carvers into a jar of Pitch RX you can see the dark brown color coming off the burs. We did have to use a brass brush to get the burs totally cleaned up but a brush alone from the start would have been out of the question. If you are looking for a safer product than traditional harsh chemicals to clean your burs then this product is for you.
Pitch RX is biodegradable, Silicone Free, Non-Flammable, Non-Abrasive and Phosphate Free.
PitchRx removes pitch, gum and resin from blades, bits, planer and jointer knives, shaper and moulding bits, carving burrs, files and more. For small pitch build up just spray it on, rinse off and dry thoroughly! For more heavily soiled cutting edges, place in container and soak for 2-3 minutes, agitating occasionally, rinse and dry thoroughly. Some build up may require the use of a toothbrush in addition to soaking, then rinse and dry thoroughly.
