It’s a general purpose shading tip that works well for shading with straight edges and corners. Make sure to rotate as well as using the edge for ultra-fine lines. The tip creates feather and tin shape when pressed down correctly on wood.

Ball tip

It’s very important that you use a pair of pliers so as to remove the tips. Ensure that the wood burner is off and that it has cooled down before switching out the tips. Always remember to remove the tips before storing to avoid the tip freezing within the tool. Lastly, you can use graphite powder so as to ensure the tip doesn’t stick within the tool.
