Introductory tool for the beginner or a fantastic foil for the more experienced woodturner looking for another flexible tool to equip their workshop.
This set delivers economy and efficiency in abundance. Three easily attached heads allow for quick interchanging of tools at a fraction of the cost of three separate versions. These can be prepared in advance of a project allowing the turner to quickly swap heads and deliver varying cuts in a matter of seconds.
The patented detachable heads have been the single biggest selling accessory for a system that has taken the turning world by storm: the indexing action delivers three standard cuts and demonstrates the highly practical nature of a system that offers three metallurgies (high speed steel (HSS), titanium nitride and tungsten carbide) and seven cutting tips.
