The nipple cutter is a must have for any bow maker's tool box. Rodney D. Mohr has used this nipple cutter for over 35 years to make over 1,000 bows. Currently available for violin and viola only.
A 6mm cut for a 3mm screw, this cutter is made from hardened tool steel for durability and accuracy. It also can be used for 1/8" screws by requesting a 1/8" centering arbor for a minimal upcharge.
This versatile tool can be used in a lathe with or without the centering arbor, in a bow drill, or by hand. The centering arbor is not permanetly fixed, making the cutter easy to disassemble. Do not over tighten the set-screw when securing the centering arbor or it will strip. This versatile tool can be used in a lathe with or without the centering arbor, in a bow drill, or by hand.
CAUTION! This tool can and will cut aggressively. We strongly recommend making a 1mm saw kerf at the edge of the final nipple depth to prevent tearing. Please practice using this tool on scrap material before using it on your finely crafted bow. For use on wood only! Mohr Better Tools is not responsible for any damage incurred by using this tool.
It is a high quality tool and a fine gift for your favorite bow maker.
