Turning tools for making captive rings have been available for some time, but two tools were needed – a right and left hand – making it an expensive investment.
This combination tool has a specially designed tip (similar to a modified skew chisel) to make both the right- and left-hand separating cuts after using a beading tool for the initial shape. Cuts a 3/8" thick ring.
Blade is 1/2" wide by 1/4" thick and 6" long. Hardwood handle. Overall length is 14 1/2".
