This modular hollowing set is a great starter kit for those wanting to experiment with hollowing forms in miniature. A handy boring tool makes it easy to open apertures quickly whilst the swan neck hollowing tool delivers greater reach in the undercut.
The RS200KT multi-tip hollowing tool is one of Robert Sorby’s most versatile tools. Its massive half-round shank and interchangeable tips make it capable of multiple applications. A Robert Sorby legend, this tool is a must-have for every turner’s collection. Cutters also available in our Excelsior high-performance range (Titanium Nitride coating). Complete with 3 tips ie;RS200C ,RS 211C and RS 212C.
The RS2000 System is a tried and trusted method of deep vessel hollowing. This flexible system can be used in a number of modes. Firstly, it is a very safe and effective means of hollowing deep vessels through narrow openings. At the same time it can be used for coning - producing a series of bowls from the same blank with a minimum of waste wood. This same method enables picture frames and other large rings to be made. Included in the complete system is a chattertool assembly which enhances end grain by creating a myriad of different decorative effects. The RS2000 is available as a complete system (RS2000) with twenty components as indicated below in a wooden case or as a basic system (RS2001) which is identical to the complete system except for the elimination of the chattertool components. Alternatively components may be purchased individually to suit the turner’s requirements. The RS2000 is supplied with a comprehensive eight-page instructional manual full of useful guidance and illustrations.
Simply one of the finest hollowing systems on the market. Works equally well on wet or dry grain end timber. The Sovereign Ultima hollowing system uses a high performance cutter system with self clearing head design allowing for fast and effortless waste removal. Depth of cut can be finely tuned by altering the cut adjustment cap using the micro-adjust wheel. The multi- variable configuration head and link system allows the tool to be used in a variety of positions to create a multitude of hollow form shapes. The Sovereign Ultima is currently available in two sizes: the small version is suitable for projects up to 11" in depth and is fitted to the 16" Sovereign handle, the medium sized model has a maximum hollowing depth of 16" and is fitted to the 22" Sovereign handle. Both systems include ⅜" and ½" collet adaptors to allow for a variety of other tools to be fitted. Both sizes are available either with or without handles.
The individual shape of these tools makes them suitable for blind turning or under cutting where reach is restricted. The 14" version (851H) is designed for end grain use on shallower depth projects whilst the slightly larger model (855H) allows for greater reach. The 24" version (859H) is produced from a more substantial section steel, and is more suitable for both end grain and side grain working. These tools are used by placing the round bar of the tool shank (directly behind the swan neck) against the tool rest. The 851H can be used in conjunction with wall thicknessing gauge (854).
