The Robert Sorby Centre Steady is a convenient way of keeping long, thin items straight and prevents them from flexing in the middle. This Centre Steady is designed to counter-act this problem and is constructed from heavy section steel; it features three independently adjustable fingers, which will hold work pieces with diameters between 1/8" and 4". The bearing on the fingers have been specially developed to eliminate any burning of the wood.
This is the ideal solution when working on those longer in length projects such as: Billiard Cues, Long Balustrades, Banister Spindles, Lamp standards and other similar projects
The sharpening system has just arrived and it is splendid!
As a newcomer to woodturning it is going to be invaluable.
Thank you very much for the free protractor - it is much appreciated and please be assured that I am very happy with this and previous orders and that Turners Toolbox will continue to be my first stop for all things woodturning.
Many thanks - John
