Robert Sorby SOV-12S 12´´ Sovereign Handle with 3/8´´ and Tang Collet Adapters
|Excellent grip, superb balance and rugged construction give the Robert Sorby Sovereign Handles superior control and stability for the most challenging turnings. Just add your favorite cutter shaft for a turning tool like no other. The Sovereign handle accepts a 5/8´´ diameter turning shank out of the box, and a tang collet and a 3/8´´ collet are included for adapting to the corresponding shank sizes. The aluminum ends thread off, allowing you to fill the handle with lead shot for stability. An optional Threaded Coupler is available so that two handles can be combined for extra length. An accessory Counterweight can also be attached when additional weight is desired for balance at the butt end of the handle.Features: Steel core for strength and vibration-dampening.Knurled aluminum ends for corrosion resistance and balance.Core is hollow, allowing shank to be inserted to deepest possible depth, reducing flexing and chatter.End cap unscrews, allowing addition of lead shot for extra weight and greater control.Durable Softex grip for extra comfort.Hex-head set screws are capped with brass to prevent damage to your turning tools.Accepts chisels with a 5/8´´, 3/8´´ and tang style shaft (Note: American-made tools are measured by bar diameter while European brands are measured by flute size. So the 3/8´´ collet is designed for a European 1/4´´ gouge, the 1/2´´ collet for a European 3/8´´ gouge, and a European 1/2´´ gouge will fit directly into the Sovereign handle).Use the optional 1/2´´ collet (#47155, sold separately) for the TurnMaster shanks (#45649, sold separately).For extra weight at the butt end, when used with very large chisels, for example, the Sovereign Counterweight (20541, sold separately) can be inserted inside the handle.The Threaded Coupler (#26168, sold separately) can be used to join any two Sovereign Handles for extra length.
