Robert Sorby Sovereign System Turnmaster and Hollowing Tools

The Robert Sorby Sovereign System is a modular system that interchangable handles and other components, for a flexible and higly configurable system of turning tools. The Turnmaster tools all use interchable tips, that can be sharpened, or treated as disposables. The tips are available in high speed steel (HSS), titanium nitride coated, or carbide, depending on your preference. We find that for most people the HSS are the easiest to sharpen and are the best all around choice. If you are working with exotic woods with a high silica content, the carbide cutters are probably your best choice. The titanium nitride coated cutters are similar to the HSS cutters, but have a hard coating on the edge which give them greated edge retension.

Robert Sorby Sovereign Ultima Hollowing System
The Sovereign Ultima Hollowing System is the latest product from the Robert Sorby factory in Sheffield.

It forms part of the Sovereign System but is also a stand-alone tool in its own right. Available in two sizes it enables woodturners to produce hollow forms up to 11" (275mm) with the small version and up to 16" (400mm) with the medium in both wet and dry woods. It has a cutter system that slices through the wood rather than scraping and the clever design allows the shavings to clear without clogging. It is equally effective on bowl grain work as well as end-grain projects. The cutter is able to make light or heavy cuts and the unique micro adjust feature enables the turner to set the cutter depth with ease.
