The Cygnet tool or baby swan was designed by Cindy Drozda from Boulder, CO. This is an ideal tool for many small diameter and small opening hollow forms.
A beginner or an experienced woodturner will enjoy the Cygnet ease of control due to the design and angle of the cutter on the tool. The tool uses the versatile Hunter # 1 cutter set at 45 degrees front tilt.
The cutter is held in place with a #1 torx screw tightened with a standard T-9 flag style torx wrench. The reason for the flag style wrench is that the screw only needs to be finger tight!! Do not over tighten.
It is recommended to do a random rotation of the cutter every time the tool is used. A light coating of wax prior to use will help loosen the cutter screw when you have been turning wet wood.
