Jeweler's Burs (Frasers) Gateway
Burs & Bur Accessories 3⁄32"
When Isadore Shor first started his jewelry supply business, around the turn of the century, one of the few dozen things he carried in his satchel was Busch burs. Shor still handles the Busch bur line, as well as other brands of burs from other countries such as Switzerland and England.
In standard 3⁄32" shank burs, Shor carries 4 brands made of tungsten vanadium as well as 1 brand high speed burs.
- Busch Burs - Long time jeweler's favorite, the first bur introduced into the U.S., introduced by Isadore Shor around 1918. Made in Germany with a reputation for quality. For years, when a jeweler asked for a bur, "Busch" and bur were synonymous.
- Grobet Burs - Made in Switzerland, with typical Swiss quality and precision in every bur. The burs are ground on modern equipment and are held to close manufacturing specifications.
- EuroTool Burs - Made in Switzerland. Our finest quality tungsten vanadium bur. Satisfaction guaranteed.
- Klein Burs - Made in England. Equal or better in quality to any of the better known brands of tungsten vanadium steel burs. Manufactured on the most modern equipment with methods which give Klein burs the edge in economy without sacrificing any quality. Satisfaction guaranteed.
- High Speed (HS) Burs - Made in the U.S. High Speed burs have always been the longest lasting, with an average life expectancy of 10-20 times that of the standard tungsten vanadium bur. Unlike standard burs, which are packed in boxes of 6, the HS burs are available individually. In the long run, these are, by far, the most economical burs to buy.
On some burs, there are 2 different kinds of "cut" available- "CC" also called "crosscut" and "SC" also called single cut or just "regular cut" or "standard". Unless a bur is designated CC or crosscut, it's a single cut bur.
