Default Cutter with a point?

I am trying to fine detail work, need a cutter with a point. Purchased two 60 deg. Freud cutters, neither has a point. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you're in the market for an engraving bit instead of V-bits.

The point of cutters is to remove or cut material. It isn't hard to find V-bits with a sharp tip though.

I think Chuck gets the point. Not familiar with CNC but I didn't realize there were engraving bits.

This one on a 1/2" shank is the finest in my collection and I can't imagine needing anything finer.

Default Re: Cutter with a point

Thanks for all the answers guys, I found out that evidently Freud doesn't make cutters with a point but Whitside does. I make a lot of small signs with lettering, that is why I need a point.
Thanks again.

I find the spiral type v-bits are the cleanest cutting for me. These all have sharp points (the 30 will draw blood, DAMHIKT). The Whiteside 60 comes tor a pretty good point as well, for a traditional type 60.
