Metal ferrules both beautify and fortify your custom hand turned tools. Ordinarily, the wood at the juncture between blade and handle is prone to splitting, but the ferrule securely binds the joint, making the tool suitable for the heaviest uses. The bulbous section of the handle near the ferrule (as shown in the example) also serves to prevent splitting. These ferrules are solid brass, precisely machined, and include tacks to secure the ferrule. They are sold in packs of two.
- Ferrules measure 1-1/8'' outside diameter x 1'' inside diameter x 3/4''L
- Wall thickness is approximately 1/16''
- Inside of one rim is beveled for a neat fit with the handle
- Holes are pre-drilled to accept included tacks
