A tricky job made easy
This tool does but one thing, it cuts captured rings on spindles. I learned how to cut rings using a skew chisel however I was looking for a way to cut smaller and more precise rings for some bottle stoppers that I was planning to make. I opted for this tool because it cut a large variety of ring sizes with just one tool. Thus far I have only used the smaller sized cutters however they are simple to use and cut very nice and well proportioned rings. If I were cutting a lot of rings I would opt for a left and a right cutting tool rather than having to change the tip back and forth with an allen wrench as required with this tool. It does however fit my needs for an occasional hand made gift or special project. I would buy another of these tools if I lost the one I have.
