Presented in a high quality, beautifully crafted box. It delivers a striking visual impact especially if gifted as a present. The most comprehensive of Robert Sorby’s full size sets. This eight piece deluxe set carries all the core tools a turner will need to accomplish many basic projects and more. It contains two sizes of spindle roughing gouge to accommodate varying sized projects and two scrapers (round and square); the round scraper is ideal for creating flowing curves and the square is perfect for finishing convex and flat bottomed forms.
This Set Includes:
843H ¾" Spindle roughing gouge - turns square to round, a real work horse
840H ¼" Spindle gouge - details spindle work
840H ½" Spindle gouge - provides greater variety for engaging spindle work
842H ⅜" Bowl gouge - makes light work of the hardest material and will quickly turn bowls
810H ¾" Standard skew chisel – modified slightly this year to provide a slightly ‘rolled’ edge to help guard against catching an edge, this tool still retains much of its weight making it an ideal choice for larger spindle work, such as newel posts and table legs
831H 3/16" Diamond parting tool – for parting off work and great for detailing
820H ½" Round nose scraper – just the job for bowls, platters and spindle work
823H 1" Square scraper – ideal for flat bottomed projects and can be easily re-profiled to suit the turner
Proposition 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was initiated in California. Under this act, a list of chemicals that are known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm is published annually. This list contains more than 700 chemicals that can be found in consumer and industrial products or services, in addition to chemicals that are released into the environment.
As part of this California law, businesses are required to provide warnings for products that may contain any listed chemical. As such, the following warning will be included on specific product web pages and included with all orders shipped to the state of California:
WARNING: These products may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Products most likely to require Proposition 65 warnings include brass items, finishing products, items made of PVC. The state of California's advice regarding safe handling of most of these products is to wash your hands after handling.
