Sorby Captive Ring Tool Set


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. This 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.

You no longer need a "left and right" tool for each size captive ring. Each cutter can be switched from cutting the right side to cutting the left side of a captive ring by simply unscrewing the retaining screw and reversing the cutter. The 4 interchangeable tips allow you to produce 3/16", 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" captive rings. The flat tool shank eliminates catches common to round captive ring tools rotating during the cut. Instructions included.

  • Cut 4 different sizes of captive rings with just 1 tool!
  • The tips themselves are finely honed to ensure a clean cut ever time.
  • Captive Ring Tools comes with tips capable of producing 3/16", ¼", 3/8", and ½" rings.
  • Can be used to make spindles of projects, jewelery, napkin rings, curtain ring even wheels
