Bangles, curtain rings and wheels as well as captive rings on goblets and puzzles are amongst the projects which can be created with the Robert Sorby Captive Ring Tool set.
There is no longer a need to have an array of tools to cut different sizes of ring. The Robert Sorby Captive Ring set includes four different cutters to enable the turner to cut rings of 3/16", ¼", ⅜" and ½" from one inexpensive set. The ring cutter tips themselves are interchangeable and located in a specifically designed slot. This slot ensures that the cutter is correctly angled to create a perfect cut on each side of the ring. Together with the ¾" flat shank firmly located on the tool rest, this gives a full control. The cutter can also be angled for access to restricted spaces. Cutters are sharpened with a diamond stone, instructions included. Tools fitted with just one cutter and individual cutters are also available separately.
We recommend applying a light oil to the blades when not in use to keep them in perfect condition.
