Swivel-tip Probes

As the name of these woodturing tools suggests, Robert Sorby's swivel tip probes make an ideal tool choice for accessing and turning out those small apertures and restricted openings commonly associated with the turning of vases and deep vessels.
Three variations of probe offer the woodturner differing reach and access opportunities. The largest model (8803H) offers the additional advantage of having an articulated head to improve access when hollowing-out even the most demanding woodturning projects.
Each of the three sizes offers a different combination of cutting tip suitable for a range of turning tasks; making these tools ideal for the rapid removal of stock, general profiling, shaping and even fine finishing work on side and end grain.
