These new tools from Sorby are designed to make spindle turning easier. The Spindlemaster Tools will leave a very smooth finish even when cutting softer woods. This tool is great for rolling beads and cutting coves. The bevel of the tool is polished and should never need grinding. It is easy to sharpen these tools by using a diamond hone or sharpening stone flat on the top face of the tool.
The bottom of the tool is shaped in a half circle to facilitate better tool movement. The Spindlemaster tools are made of high speed steel and are available in 1/2" and 3/4" sizes.
