These Bluefire cut-off wheels boast a thin kerf for fast cutting and low kerf loss on metal pipe, metal plate and sheet metal. Bluefire wheels are the product of advanced chemistry using zirconia alumina abrasive with premium aluminum oxide grain. They provide an excellent performance-to-price ratio, boasting 2-3 times the life of aluminum oxide wheels for lower total grinding costs. With broad utility from light- to heavy-pressure applications, they make an ideal choice for stainless steel, carbon steel, alloys and gray iron, and are also a good choice for mild carbon, high tensile steel and cast iron. Formulated from zirconia alumina/aluminum oxideType 01/41 wheel shape (essentially a straight flat disc)Use with an angle grinder
Designed specifically to fit the Robert Sorby TurnMaster system, these carbide cutters offer excellent durability and all-around turning performance. The cutters are disposable, which eliminates the time and expense of sharpening. Available in three profiles: round, square and detail point (diamond). The same cutters are also available in HSS and Titanium-Nitride coated HSS (e.g. 49956 and 45438, sold separately). See the "More Info" tab for more on the different cutter materials.Technical Details:Solid tungsten carbide for an incredibly long cutting life.Cutters can easily be swapped by removing the high tensile torx screw on the TurnMaster shank.be easily removed to change the cutter.vRound Carbide Cutter is 9/16" in diameter, and is ideal for waste removal and shaping of concave surfaces.Square Carbide Cutter measures 9/16" x 9/16", and is ideal for waste removal and shaping of flat and convex surfaces.Detail Point Carbide Cutter measures 1/2"W x 1-3/32"L, and is used for parting and line detailing.Which cutter material should I use?Cutters for the Robert Sorby TurnMaster are available in Tungsten Carbide, High Speed Steel (HSS) and HSS coated with Titanium Nitride ("Excelsior").Tungsten Carbide:Designed to be disposable, these carbide cutters don't require any sharpening. (Carbide tips can be sharpened, but require specialized diamond abrasives).Carbide stays reasonably sharp for a longer period of time, but because of its coarse grain, can never be sharpened as finely as HSS.Gives extended cutting life with the toughest of woods.Sharpens to 0.7 - 1 microns.Hardness: 90 RC.Material: micro grade tungsten carbide.High Speed Steel (HSS):Due to its finer grain structure, HSS holds a sharper edge than carbide, but will dull more quickly.Very economical - can be re-sharpened multiple times with standard sharpening equipment.Provides unmatched quality for the discerning woodturner keen on getting the greatest detail from their tools.Sharpens to 0.2 - 0.4 microns.Hardness : 62 RC.Material: M2 HSS.Titanium Nitride-Coated HSS (Excelsior):These cutters provide the same advantages as HSS but give added longevity before sharpening is required.No specialized equipment is required for sharpening.Repeated sharpening does not remove the titanium nitride coating, it simply renews it.Sharpens to 0.15 - 0.2 microns.Hardness of titanium coating is up to 85 RC.Material: Titanium nitride coated M2 HSS.
For sanding with dust extractor. For universal application on nearly all surfaces. Corundum abrasive grain and full resin bond guarantee high abrasion performance.
As their name implies, FastCap Skins HD Work Gloves fit much like a second skin. Light, thin and breathable, they provide excellent tactile feedback for detail-oriented, high-dexterity tasks. The palms and fingertips are coated with a rugged, textured latex rubber for grip and durability, and feature excellent snag, cut, puncture and abrasion resistance. If desired, you can even snip off the fingertips of one or more fingers for maximum dexterity while still affording plenty of protection-the material will not unravel. The gloves are ideal for oily, wet and dusty conditions, and for any task where your fingers need some additional protection, such as sanding, carving, and handling rough lumber. Rugged seamless design stands up to repeated washings and dries quickly.Technical Details:Palms and fingertips are coated with a rugged, textured latex rubber for grip and durability.Light and breathable material conform to the shape of your hand.Fingertips of the gloves can be snipped off for maximum dexterity, while still protecting most of your hand.Ideal for oily, wet and dusty conditions.Seamless design for durability under rugged use.
