Sorby about the best depends upon style you want thou not cheap. Craft supplies sells cutter wheel for people that make their own. Don’t overlook making our chatter/texturing tool! See different approaches below.

I have the larger Sorby and the Highland kit for dremel tools. Both work as advertised. Depends on what you are wanting to do. The dremel style is for smaller detail textures and smaller dia projects where the big wheel of the Sorby wont fit. Use both for spindle or bowl.

Have your say...
