Ball Nose Bit's

When I Purchased my X-Carve back in November not knowing any better i ordered the Carving Bit Super Pack https://www.inventables.com/technologies/carving-bit-super-pack, Today I was carving and noticed I had a bit that I didn’t have loaded into my toolbox of bit’s so when i tried to add the bit it wasn’t there. So i looked at Inventables page to make sure it wasn’t discontinued, Nope they are still selling it.

How do you load this particular bit into the easel toolbox?

You can enter it the same as you would a 1/8" bit. Most people use a ball nose for a fine finish bit with very little being taken off the material. Gives it a pretty nice finish. Some people use them like a regular 1/8" bit. Your choice. I pretty much use mine for a finish pass.
