Robert Sorby H0498 - Oval Skew Chisel HSS 1 Inch
H0498 Robert Sorby 1" HSS Oval Skew Chisel
Delicately balanced skews that are the planes of the spindle turners tool kit.
Originally designed at Robert Sorby, the profile of the H0498 1" HSS Oval Skew Chisel glides effortlessly along the tool rest without fear of the edges dragging on the rest.
This chisel will smooth cylinders, clean the end grain of spindles, cut shallow curves, beads, pummels, v-cuts, stair balusters, and chair legs.
The oval skew is indispensable for creating fine finishes and is not designed for bowl grain projects.
HSS (high-speed steel) has been heat treated for hardness and wear resistance, which keeps a sharp edge longer than other carbon steels.
Robert Sorby produces the most comprehensive choice of woodturning tools on the market.
