Robert Sorby Sovereign 16" Handle and 2 Collets (3/8", 1/2")
This set inclues the 16" Soverign handle and 2 collets (SOV-C10 and SOVC13)
This 16" handle is equally at home providing added comfort when stretching to the bottom of long vases or adding that stability often required with many turning techniques. Its length provides that added leverage and additional support. This is the most popular Sovereign handle. Without a collet, this handle will work with 1/2” and 3/4” bowl gouges, and the extra long multi tip hollowing tool, otherwise, will need an appropriate collet adapter to interface with smaller diameter tools.
The SOV-C10 presents with a 3/8" aperture making a fast hold for 1/4" bowl gouges and fingernail bowl gouges. It also matches 1/4" spindle gouges, fingernail spindle gouges and long and strong spindle gouges.
The SOV-C13 has the widest aperture for tools made from round section at 1/2" and is perfectly aligned to take 3/8" bowl gouges and fingernail bowl gouges, the 1/2" spindle gouge, fingernail spindle gouge and the long and strong spindle gouge as well as the TurnMaster. The Spiralling System and Texturing Tool also use this collet.
The Robert Sorby Sovereign System is a beautifully engineered and ergonomically designed interchangeable handle system that not only looks good but has the perfect feel and balance. The body of the handles are made from aluminum alloy and knurled to provide a nonslip grip. Its Softex nonslip grip provides excellent comfort and stability making it ideal for larger projects as well as the intricacies demanded of smaller ones. A range of accessories add to its versatility providing additional grip, steadiness, weight distribution, extended handle size and enormous tool choice. Four easily interchangeable collets allow for the majority of unhandled Robert Sorby tools to fit into this flexible system. Collets are available for tanged tools as well as those with 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" inch diameter shanks. Tools with a 5/8" shank don’t require a collet and fit directly into the handle. The Sovereign handles are available in three sizes (12", 16" and 22") and can be joined together to provide the woodturner with a variety of alternative handle lengths.
