Take a close look at the edge of this carbide cutter 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. The replaceable, rotatable cutter eliminates the hassle and downtime of sharpening. Simply rotate the carbide cutter for a fresh, sharp edge, and replace it once all edges have grown dull. Solid carbide stays sharp for longer when compared with steel, giving you a much longer useful life. The shaft features a flattened back for stability when using the tool rest, and the handles are made of solid ash encased with a thick, molded rubber end for an enhanced grip and reduced fatigue. They're great for beginning to advanced woodturners, ensuring quick success without the frustration of dull tools. Since you don't need to invest hundreds of dollars into sharpening equipment, they're also an excellent value.Features:Excellent for smoothing cuts and convex surfaces.Replaceable Sr2 cutter measures approximately 0.60'' square with a 2'' convex radius on all 4 edges.Total overall length of Full Size Carbide Turning Tool is approximately 19-1/2''.Handles are 13'' long from the butt of the handle to the top of the stainless steel ferrule.Length of the shaft is approximately 6-1/2''.Ash handles are coated with a soft, grippy rubber for a secure, effortless grip and excellent ergonomics.Note: carbide cutters are not interchangeable between the different tools.
This electronically driven automatic blast gate is an optional upgrade to the iVac Pro Wireless Dust Collection Control System, bringing one-touch simplicity to managing your dust collection airflow. Simply turn on your power tool, and the iVac Pro Tool (42891, sold separately) sends a wireless signal to automatically open the Pro Blast Gate, and another signal to the iVac Pro Switch (42897, sold separately), which turns on your dust collector. Turn off your power tool, and after a short interval to clear dust, the blast gate closes and the dust collector powers down. This automation prevents the irritating dust clouds that result from forgetting to open a blast gate, and the reduced suction that results from forgetting to close it afterward. Prevents the irritating dust clouds you get from forgetting to open the blast gateReduces the potential for accidents from reaching for blast gates while machines are runningOptimizes the suction in your system by keeping a minimum number of gates open at one timeBlast gate can also be controlled with the included toggle switchUp to eight blast gates can operate on one systemA Starter Pack (50767) is also available separately that includes two gates, a wireless remote and a manual toggle switchRF range: 40'
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.
It beads, coves, planes, trims end grain and much more!The Spindlemaster is ideal for small projects like boxes and rattles, and works just as effectively on large pieces like bedposts and staircase spindles. If you have reservations about using a skew chisel, the Spindlemaster is the answer.
