#1 Back (Shoulder)Tool

Shoulder Tool

The Small Tapered Shoulder tool is sometimes called the Back tool. The unique cutter placement is perfect for turning under the shoulder of a small diameter turning such as a Christmas ornament globe. The following link is useful to see this tool in cut.

The overall length of this tool is 8”. The additional length makes the tool useful to load into many of the captured hollowing systems. The Small Tapered tool can be provided with a 12” handle. Many turners use these tools in the various manufactured handles that are available on the market. By only exposing the minimum shaft length needed for your specific turning these manufactured handles helps increase the rigidity in the tools.
