Cut Cleaner. Sand Less. Pens and small projects are turned these days in a world full of exotic materials; acrylics, polymer clays, stabilized wood, and even mixtures of all the above. Shear scraping works, but the 45° angle that works for most solid wood is sometimes not the optimum angle for synthetics. Also, tiny diameter work often requires you to tweak the shear angle.
Micro-Shear tools feature round sides allowing you to locate the optimum shear angle for whatever material, shape or dimension youre cutting. But, rather than being completely round, the bottom is machined flat, so roughing and shaping cuts are solidly supported.
The Micro-Shear tool shanks are machined from a high strength steel alloy and go through a two-step heat treating process that makes them corrosion resistant, extremely rigid and silky smooth on your tool rest. The handles are comfortably balanced to the tool size and turned from Rock Maple. We offer the same three fundamental shapes in the Micro-Shear line, square for outside curves, round for inside curves and a fully sharp detail tool.
