If you own one of the Sorby Turn Master tools, or are considering purchasing one, this video will show a quick change you can make so that a greater variety of carbide insert cutter styles can be used.
The change is adding a slight countersink to the top of the mounting hole on the tool head. With this change many more cutter styles can be used on the TurnMaster.
The 15mm round, square, radius and large diamond insert cutters available from AZ Carbide can now be mounted on the TurnMaster.
