The TurnMaster is the first tool in the world to offer woodturners the choice of three cutting edge materials - all available for one groundbreaking tool. This flexiblility combines unmatched value with the equally unbeatable Robert Sorby guarantee.
Among the TurnMaster's many features and benefits is its patented indexed head. This provides three settings for flat and shear scraping, allowing the tool to work at angles that shear through the fibres of timber proving less "tear out" of the grain; resulting in the need for very little sanding.
The concept of the tool gives the flexiblilty to provide a scraping system that turners can tailor to their own specific needs.
For example the tungsten carbide vesion is available with any of three cutters (round, square and detailed). The HSS version comes with the same three cutter shapes pre-packed and both HSS and Titanium Nitride cutters are available in seven multi functional profiles.
To add even greater versality the tool is available unhandled to fit the popular Sovereign system.
The cutters are available in three cutting edge materials:
Tungsten carbide cutters don't need sharpening. These three throwaway cutters are designed to make light work of though and difficult material but also offer the ability to detail and finish resistant woods.
Robert Sorby standard high speed steel (HSS) provides the woodturner with a material that can easily be resharpened to create an ultra sharp edge. This steel provides unmatched quality for the discerning woodturner keen on getting the greatest detail from their tools. Seven alternative cutters are availalbe in HSS.
Titanium nitride cutters give added longlevity before sharpening is required. These cutters are TiN plasma coated onto Robert Sorby high speed steel providing the woodturner with a choice of seven job-specific tips. These cutters will sharpen easily providing a cutting edge much sharper than tungsten carbide.
