Ball End Cutter – High Speed Steel

The Robert Sorby Ball End Cutter is designed for the smooth shaping of the inside of a bowl, vase or hollow form. Designed as the perfect companion for two popular Robert Sorby hollowing tools – the Swan Neck and Swivel Tip tools – this cutter will deliver excellent smooth surface finishes and is perfect for delicate shaping.
Use a diamond file or honing stone flat across the top face. To gain best results and increase the longevity of the cutter this simple procedure should be done little and often.
Use the 472 cutter holder to reshape the profile on the Robert Sorby ProEdge or on a grinding wheel.
