There are hundreds of carving tool sweeps and shapes to choose from. Robert Sorby manufactures 24 of the most universally used standard tools, 12 micro or palm-held tools and six larger sculpturing tools. When Robert Sorby reintroduced carving tools in 1993, we reappraised tool style and revised conventional thinking:
Selecting special Sheffield alloy steel unique to Robert Sorby
Creating perfect balance to counter new blade design
Employing stringent heat treatment to ensure the finest edge retention
Providing a polished, razor sharp factory finish
Produced from a fine grade of cotton these deluxe mops have been made to deliver the ultimate finish. They are used after sanding to buff oil, lacquer and wax finishes to a lustrous sheen. Mops are fixed to the Sandmaster using the pigtail mandrel.
Inlaying adds character. A Precision Boring System (765) is used in conjunction with the Indexing System for accurate hole boring in work pieces. Pre-bored hardened steel inserts are available in metric - 6, 9 and 12mm - or inch sizes - ¼" , ⅜" and ½". Corresponding HSS brad point bits ensure total accuracy when drilling.
For use in conjunction with the Indexing System
