Excellent Tool
This tool really enhanced inside carving. I like the replaceable cutting tip and they are easier to sharpen than traditional tools.

I am a novice at bowl turning. This tool works for me in getting inside the bowl. My first attempt was a bit frustrating. And that is not the fault of the tool. This is the shortest version and I probably will get the mid-sized version at a later date.

Great for my first hollowing tool
So far this tool was what I had hoped it would be for my first hollowing project, a goblet.

It's worth the money
I have made some of my own turning tools for special applications, but this does the job for cutting inside of vases and small neck bowls

Needs better design
Once you get used to using it, the tool is pretty good. Not a fan of how thin the tool shaft is and the fact that it's a round edge sitting on the tool rest. It tends to want to grab and roll. Kind of dangerous. But if you keep your cuts very light you'll be fine. I should have held out for the easy hollower #3.

Robert Sorby hollowing tool
I would not recommend the tool in that it is very difficult to control due to the heavy torque causing a rotation. Some tools of similar design have a wider arm with a flat bottom sitting on the tool rest. I first considered modifying the tool by adding a dowel perpendicular to the wood handle, but decided that that may be too dangerous with a catch.

I needed a hollowing tool and this one was fairly inexpensive, also with the Sorby name you can almost never go wrong.

On the cutter wheel, what is the degree of angle when sharpening?
jim s on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I do no sharpen on a wheel! I use a diamond stone and simply rub the cutter on each flat side. That is the Sorby recommended way to extend the cutter life and maintain the original face angle. I do have the holder to use on a Sorby sharpener, but have not needed to remove edge flaws on any Sorby tip cutter edges in the three years of use. Sharpening diamond stone has been the best solution.
I would like to see this tool in use before purchasing it, so are there any photographs or videos available anywhere that show this tool in action?
Tim M on Jun 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Don't have a video, but I've been using one since Sorby introduced them. Great for finish in hollow turnings, even
rough out if you're patient. Personally I prefer Jackofsky's hollowing tools for rough out. Hope this helps.
where can I find the 851c replacement cutters ?
