Take a close look at the edge of this carbide insert and you'll realize it's not actually square. Instead, each of its four edges is slightly crowned with a 2'' radius. This subtle change makes the cutter excellent for smoothing cuts. No sharpening required - just rotate to a new edge when the previous edge gets dull, and replace the cutter when needed. Features: Sr2 replacement cutter measures approximately 0.60'' square with a 2'' convex radius on all 4 edges. Solid carbide for a long life. Factory sharpened - ready for use right out of the box. Note: This cutter is not compatible with a standard square turning tool. Use it with the Full Size Square Radius Carbide Turning Tool only (48535, sold separately).
Let's face it, every pen turner occasionally blows out a blank or trims it too short. Don't fret, though-this pack of replacement pen tubes has you covered. The brass tubes are precisely dimensioned for smooth action and neat alignment of the final pen. Glue tubes in place with with medium CA (cyanoacrylate) glue or two-part fast drying epoxy.
These aluminum lathe faceplates are CNC machined for minimal runout and feature large screw holes for more workholding power. They are available in 2'' diameter (48582) and 3'' diameter (44919) sizes. The 3'' diameter faceplate includes a set screw for use on reversible lathes, but the 2'' does not have a set screw. The hubs on both are as short as possible to minimize vibration, and the thread sizes are clearly laser cut into the hubs for easy identification. 1''-8 TPI thread.
