What you are looking for is either a rotary ball rasp or a bowl makers rasp. Well Maybe I should say what I think you are looking for. You should look at turning tools and the ones used for bowl making. There are also rasp/burr(deburr) bits that go onto rotary tools like drills and such. I think woodcraft.com has a decent collection of rasps and turning tools. Some of the other guys maybe be able to help you more, my use of rasps does not venture into the type for turning(yet anyways) but just mostly for handrails and such. I also use this type but with a shorter shaft and a larger bit

This type should work well for you(top one 14x30mm), I know nothing of this site-I'm just using it for the pics

I found mine on ebay

search for "kutzall" thats the brand that makes them, might be called "burr ball" or something too. This is for popper mouths, for eyes you'll want a rasp, not a burr.

For eyes you should be using a forsner (drill) bit to match the eye size. Well that's what I and most others use for the eyes. I have bought from woodcraft.com (I mention them in my above post)and they are a very good company to deal with. As you may well know always be aware who you deal with on Ebay.

For woodcraft.com use these part numbers jackbass has listed in the search box 18N1Q, 18N4Q, 18n1H or 18N4H These at woodcraft are also the Kutzall brand. I usually get my burr bits from my Snap-On dealer, it is pricey but convienent and last forever or until I lose them.

You can get the Forsner bits at Lowes or HD, Their sets dont compete with a Freud set that I had(got stolen with a bunch other tools) but will do the job at a much cheaper price. If you really want quality forsner bits then get the Freud, these are what most cabinet making shops use.

Picked one up from him on Ebay. Looks and works great.

I use Forstner bits for eyes.
