Robert Sorby revolutionised woodturning with the Turnmaster when it was released, the Turnmaster Set takes this to the next level. For the beginner, it is the ideal tool to start with, or for the experienced woodturner, it is the ideal addition to their woodturning tool collection as it will refine what they are already doing with the flexibility it offers.

The Turnmaster features easily attached heads that allow for quick interchanging of tools at a fraction of the cost of three separate versions, indexing of these heads sets the angles at commonly used angles, with the underneath side of the shaft being flat, providing a good stable registration on the tool rest removing the tendency to rotate the chisel during use, yet another one of their unique features. Heads are usually fitted with a variety of cutters, and changed as needed in a matter of seconds.

The choice of cutters is also broad, with three types of steel cutters (high speed steel - HSS, titanium nitride and tungsten carbide) and seven cutting tips (three for tungsten carbide).

Set Includes:

  • RSTM ST2 - TurnMaster shank with HSS detailed point cutter fitted
  • RSTM Tip1Round (fitted to head) - a general purpose cutter, excellent for rapid removal of material
  • RSTM Tip2 Detail Point (fitted to head and shank) - Excellent for roughing square to round when turning centres on spindle work
  • RSTM Tip3 Square (fitted to head) - Used for generating square shoulders on tenons where a turned part is to be assembled into a hole e.g. a chair leg. Also a great shear scraper

  • RSTM Tip5 Dovetail or box cutter - as the name suggests this tool is designed to create dovetails and tenons to mount timber on scroll chucks
