I currently have a 7/16" CMT 60 deg carbide vbit and a 0.25 frued 90 deg solid carbide bit. My struggle is that both appear to clear an approximate 1/16 flat at the bottom of any cut. This is problematic when i want fine details. Am I asking for the impossible to have a true fine line cut by a rotating v-bit? I assume the bevel angle is causing the cut to be wider than a point.
I have looked at the amana set (AMS-153 and AMS-225) which has the 45,60,90 degree carbide inserts and don’t want to drop that cash if I am chasing the impossible. I realize with those that setup matters and if you do not get the tip centered in the holder a flat will occur in the cut but at least they appear to have a sharp point.
I am also curious if folks are happier with fine detail coming off of a much steeper taper than even a 45 degree? My current use case is cribbage boards and the lines are really nearly engravings more than they are v carves.
Let me know what your opinions on various vbits have been. I am all about cheaper when it makes sense but if these Amana bits are worth their cost, then I am all in.
