The perfect tool for making screw tight lids on boxes and caskets. This fascinating and practical aspect of woodturning, includes a range of cutting tool sets that have been produced from High Speed Steel in 16 and 20 threads per inch (TPI).

The Robert Sorby Spiralling System unhandled is a further development on the texturing tool and is used to create both left and right handed spirals with ease. It features an innovative rest with indexed reference positions, which enable the replication of the spirals. Differing pitch and twist profiles are made possible by altering the presentation angle of the cutter or by changing the cutter to a different one.
The texturing tool is part of the system as well as a graduated rest, 2mm, 4mm and 6mm spiralling cutters. With these you can spiral goblets, candle holders, boxes, vases, bowls and spillikins. We also offer a Micro Spiralling Tool which is ideal for decorating those small or fine projects. It can also be used to provide a variety of textures. Useful Tip: Sharpening the cutters is easy. Just place the cutter in the vertical position up against a revolving piece of work and apply a diamond file flat on the bevel. This will keep the cutter in top condition.

Chatter Tool

Chatter Tool

Chattertool patterns add a neat, random decoration on end grain like box lids. These are created by using the Robert Sorby chattertool which comes with two different double-ended chattering tips and a handy scraper cutter. One chattertool tip (RS220) has a straight and a pointed end, the second (RS221) has a convex and a concave half-round end. 

Chatter patterns are created by causing the spring steel tips to vibrate against the wood can be changed by altering the variables:

  • the type of wood
  • whether working on, below or above center
  • the speed of the lathe
  • the amount the tip extends from the chattertool
  • the shape of the chattertool tip

    This random nature enables the turner to produce some exquisite, yet unique decorations. Such decorations can enhance even the blandest of wood. 
    The scraper cutter (RS222) is teardrop shaped and so has three very different shaped working faces to make it a highly versatile addition to the tool kit. 

    Useful tip: When sharpening the chatter cutters always make sure to raise a burr. You can always tell when these are working well as they produce a high pitched whining noise. The HSS scraper cutter is sharpened with a diamond file or hone (RS224).

    Spindlemaster

    Spindlemaster Unhandled

     




    Instructions

    Taming the skew is perhaps the most common of problems encountered by the woodturner. The digs-ins which ensue from incorrect presentation cause many turners to avoid using the skew chisels and consequently reduce their skills and limit their opportunities of turning between centers. The new Spindlemaster does away with this problem. Its design is flat on one surface, and oval on the other makes dig-ins a thing of the past. It is easy to use for even the least experienced turner. In addition to doing the regular planing job of the skew chisel, the Spindlemaster will also cut both beads and coves with the greatest ease. Because of its design - the wood is almost polished and so it gives a fine finish every time. That is a particular advantage when working on soft woods like pine which normally leaves a very coarse finish.

    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. It is also available in micro size for those miniature or small projects like finials, pens, lace bobbins. Full instructions included.

    Sandmaster

    Sandmaster

    An extremely handy addition to any turner's armoury, the Sandmaster is used in conjunction with a lathe to put a fine finish on turned pieces. It eliminates the unsightly lines often associated with traditional hand sanding. As the disc is spinning it also reduces the clogging of the abrasive. The Sandmaster comes complete with a velcro covered 2" sponge pad which allows for the easy changing of abrasive discs. A variety of grits - from 60 - 400 - of aluminium oxide disc can then be quickly attached. The adjustable head which runs on a durable phospor bronze bushing lets the turner reach even the more inaccessable spots. As an optional extra, a 3" head and discs can be easily fitted for greater efficiency. The Sandmaster becomes an even more versatile tool when the head is removed and replaced by a pigtail mandrel and goblet or bowl mop. Made of fine grade cotton these mops are an ideal medium for buffing waxes and other finishes.
