Burr Speed

I have heard many people talk of burr speeds. I have a Foredom S
with a foot pedal. My question is - how do you know the rate of
burr speed? I understand fast and slow, but to actually put a
number on it - how are people getting that Thanks in


Penny, I think you are going to have to settle for the “fast” and
"slow" terms along with personal experience. There is no economical
way (that I am aware of)to accurately measure burr speeds in the
tools that we normally use in the jewelery business.However,the
Cyber-Setter did give some good comments on the subject.
