Hand Deburring Tools

Deburring tools are commonly used to smooth out and finalise workpieces, removing rough edges caused by the machining process around edges and the interior of holes for a professional finish.

Our range of deburring tools feature top quality brands with industry tested designs from the likes of NOGA, Kennedy, and Swiss+Tech. With an assortment of blade types to suit a multitude of materials and with modular ergonomic designs, most items in the deburring hand tools range can me interchanged with a multitude of tool holders and blades creating the correct tooling solution for the job.

From simple deburring blades to tool holders and kits, including burrs countersinks and scrapers, the Cromwell range provides the staples for any machining workshop. Finish up workpieces with ease and efficiency, smooth out contours and produce a professional quality finish on steel, plastic, wood, aluminium, stone, and ceramics.

What is a deburring tool?

Simply put deburring tools are handheld tools used to remove the rough edges (burrs) from the raw edges and holes of a workpiece or product, smoothing out the piece for a professional standard finish for the item for fulfil its purpose. This can help improve the product performance, as there are no obviously visible flaws as well as improve safety for users, as there are no rough or jagged edges to contend with.

How many types of deburring hand tools are there?

There are several different types of deburring tool, suited to different applications. Many modular tool holder systems allow for the interchange of various tools allowing for greater convenience and efficient working.

• Swivel blades These are half sickle-like tools that are commonly used to smooth raw edges and the interiors of holes. They come in a variety of materials, from high-speed-steel to solid carbide for harder surfaces. Some feature coatings such as TiN for greater wear resistance and a prolonged tool lifespan. Their curved design and swivelling capability inside the toolholder, allows them to rotate around irregular surfaces.

• Scraper blades Straight and triangular blades for deburring straight edges

• Ceramic blades Smooth and lightweight blade ideal for deburring straight edges on materials like soft metals and plastics where metal blades may produce a rougher edge.

• Countersinks Countersinks ensure that holes created for flathead screws are fit for purpose, enabling the screw to fit flush to the surface of the workpiece. They produce a conical hole to match the angle of the screw.

You can purchase many of these tools with a handle in kits, handles are available in a range of shapes and sizes to suit your application or preference and may feature an ergonomic design for greater user comfort.


What applications can a deburring tool be used for?

Deburring hand tools are commonly used in industrial metal fabrication and machining applications, however most deburring blades, burrs and countersinks are suitable for use on materials such as plastic, wood and ceramics. They can be also used in domestic applications for hobbyists in pastimes like modelling or for trimming the excess off 3D printed items.
