Bur tools to round prongs

What bur tool do I use to make my prongs on a setting I have made
more rounded or smooth?

Thanks!
Anne

You can use a cup bur, just select the right size. I generally finish
prong tips with a barrette file and follow up with a pumice wheel.

Cup burr

Anne- They are called Cup Burrs. Easy to use, but more easy to chip
stones with them. I only use them on small diamond melle. If you are
setting colored stones or a larger center stone it’s always best to
smooth and polish the edges of a fine cut triangle shaped needle
file or barrette file to make it a safety file and dress the prongs
with it by hand.

Have fun and make lots of jewelry.
