Rikon Turning Set

Rikon 4-Piece Woodturning System with Carbide Insert Cutters

Rikon Turning Set

Developed for the experienced or novice wood turner, RIKON's turning system features tungsten carbide cutters that keep their sharp cutting edges longer than typical carbon or high speed steel tools. After hours and hours of use, if a cutter becomes dull, just rotate it to work with another new side of the edge. Changes only take seconds. 
 
Set includes: 16" Handle, 3 Shafts, Round, Square and Diamond tungsten carbide cutters, mounting screws and T20 star wrench. All packaged in a presentation, storage box. 
 
RIKON's #70-800 Woodturning System includes a 16" long, machined aluminum Handle with an anti-vibration grip and features a forward, internal chucking system for attaching the shafts with cutters to the handle. Simply unscrew the knurled chuck collet to insert any of the three supplied shafts with carbide cutters, tighten the chuck collar, and you are ready to turn! No tools are required! 
 
Three, 8-3/8" steel Shafts are supplied along with Round, Square and Diamond shaped tungsten carbide Insert Cutters that are secured to the shafts' working end with a T20 screw. 
 
The finely machined shafts have bottoms that are milled with a flat, and 2 side bevels for extra stability on the tool rest when turning. The bottom flat is in line with the cutter to maintain the cutter in a flat position for scrape cutting. The two side bevel surfaces also give the user extra support when the cutter is shifted to an angled skew position for shear cutting action. Flats give the support and control needed, especially when turning bowl interiors where the cutter is extended out far from the tool rest.  
 
TUNGSTEN CARBIDE INSERT CUTTERS 
These long lasting, extremely hard cutters work through the hardest woods in either a scraping or shear cutting mode. Made of premium micrograin carbide, these inserts can be sharpened with diamond abrasives. Simply lap the entire TOP surface only to reveal a new cutting edge. Do not sharpen or change the angle of the bevel edge. 
 
ROUND Insert Cutter
Very effective for finishing cuts on bowl interiors or any cove or contoured designs on bowls and spindles. 
 
SQUARE Insert Cutter 
Straight edges on this carbide cutter make it extremely useful for shaping convex or straight surfaces. Ideal for producing tenons for
 
DIAMOND Insert Cutter 
Mainly used to add thin line details on turnings, the spear-point tip is great for undercutting and creating small beads. The long sides of the cutter are also useful for fine shaping of rims on bowls or plates. Use carefully, as excessive pressure on the tip from hitting knots, irregular wood grain or aggressive use could damage the cutter.
