This tool from Robert Sorby was developed by a professional turner to make groups of side by side beads easily, quickly and accurately. As the tool is slowly pushed into the wood the handle is moved a little side to side. It can also be used to form a radiused edge on faceplate turnings. The easy beader tool is made of 1/4" thick M2 high speed steel and comes fitted with an ash handle. The tool has an overall length of 13".
