This Robert Sorby Captive Ring Cutter 80513C is one of four sizes of captive ring cutters. Designed to create curtain rings, wheels and captive rings on goblets and puzzles, these cutters are an extremely popular addition to Robert Sorby’s cutter range. They can also be angled on the tool to allow for access to restricted space.
The Captive Ring Cutter is one of 14 specialised tips that support a range of tools and offer incredible flexibility to the turner.
Titanium Nitride coated for increased performance and resistance to edge wear. The cutting edge on these tools will outlast our normal tools by a minimum of three fold. Spend less time sharpening and more time turning. Supplied with standard grind.
Ideal for fine detailing on spindle work. Having the wing tips ground back reduces the danger of them catching when working in confined areas. Easily maintained and sharpened using the Robert Sorby ProEdge sharpening system
The Easybeader is designed to quickly and efficiently cut a series of evenly spaced beads. Conceived by a production turner who needed to produce bee-hive designs, the Easybeader is simple to use and easy to sharpen. Comes complete with full instructions. Ideal for honey dippers.
To add to Robert Sorby’s distinguished repertoire of sharpening tools we’ve introduced two handy sized diamond sharpening stones. These solidly formed sharpeners can accommodate a variety of materials and will easily sharpen high speed steel and tungsten carbide. No need to throw away your dull TurnMaster tungsten carbide cutters.
Available in two sizes and in two grits (600 and 1000), the larger credit card stone is coated both sides while the smaller version is single sided with a plastic backing.
Thread cutters come in pairs and include a tool for exterior threads and one for cutting matching interior threads. Perfectly designed for making screw tight lids on boxes and caskets, this fascinating and practical aspect of woodturning includes a range of cutting tools that have been produced from High Speed Steel in 10, 16 and 20 threads per inch (TPI). They have been designed with a unique, enhanced helix angle specially designed for use in wood.
To complement these tools, a range of optional items have been produced to provide a complete solution to thread cutting. These include:
Relief Cutting Tool.
Tool Support Rest – to make forming internal threads easier.
Thread and Sizing Gauge – takes all the guesswork out of dimensions.
Designed with an internal dovetail to fit securely onto the standard 2" (50mm) jaws. These rings work in the same way as normal faceplates but with the convenience of the easy chuck fitting. Available with an outer diameter of 3⅛" (80mm) and 4¾" (120mm).
Originating from Europe, these tools have gained a reputation for their superb handling qualities on spindle work. Being a forged construction, they have an even wall thickness, thereby increasing finesse without compromising strength.
End grain hollowing tools designed for hollowing small and miniature work, using branch wood or end grain timber. The boring bar and depth stop (852H and 853) form an ideal method of quickly opening up a vessel to provide both entry opening and final hollowing depth.
This modular tool rest system enables the turner to build up a collection of tool rests without going to great expense. Six different rests are available: 4", 6" and 9"as well as a 9" curved internal and external and a box platform which can be used in conjunction with just one stem. Cross bars are specially hardened to avoid those troublesome nicks and to give a smooth finish. Stems are available in ½", ⅝", ¾", ⅞", 1", 25mm, 28mm and 30mm diameters to fit most popular lathes. The same stems are compatible with the Precision Boring System.
