Cutting molds is easier and more precise with a sharp blade. A new Xacto blade is sufficient for cutting RTV molds but is usually not sharp enough for vulcanized rubber. For that it’s best to use scalpel blades available from most jewelry supply companies. The #11 blade is triangle shaped, and the #12 is hawksbill shaped. I find the hawksbill is particularly nice for cutting the registration keys of the mold.
When using multiple bit in a Foredom, we often have to deal with different shaft sizes – the usual 3/32 inch burs, the larger 1/8 inch shaft sizes and of course the many different sizes of twist drills. For some reason, I really dislike having to turn the key multiple times to open or close
