RS2000 Deep Hollowing System The RS2000 System is a tried and trusted method of deep vessel hollowing. This flexible system can be used in a number of modes. Firstly, it is a very safe and effective means of hollowing deep vessels through narrow openings. At the same time it can be used for coning - producing a series of bowls from the same blank with a minimum of waste wood. This same method enables picture frames and other large rings to be made. Included in the complete system is a chattertool assembly which enhances end grain by creating a myriad of different decorative effects. The RS2000 is available as a complete system (RS2000) with twenty components as indicated below in a wooden case or as a basic system (RS2001) which is identical to the complete system except for the elimination of the chattertool components. Alternatively components may be purchased individually to suit the turner’s requirements. The RS2000 is supplied with a comprehensive eight-page instructional manual full of useful guidance and illustrations. 25 RSâ•‹203C RSâ•‹204 RSâ•‹203S RSâ•‹202 RSâ•‹211 RSâ•‹203 RSâ•‹205 RSâ•‹211C RSâ•‹210 RSâ•‹222 RSâ•‹220 RS213 RSâ•‹221 RSâ•‹215 RSâ•‹215C i RSâ•‹223 RSâ•‹224 ARTICULATED PROBE RS213 With its movable head the Articulated Probe (RS213) reaches many inaccessible spots. It can be fitted with either a large scraper (RS213) or the hollowing tips (RS211C and RS212C). It should be fitted to the Main Handle (RS202) and Side Handle (RS203) or the Armbrace (RS206). Arm Brace RS206 Ref Description RS2000 RS2001 RS202 RS203 RS203C SLICER HOOKER The hollow ground nose of the tungsten carbide tip allows deep plunge cuts, at any angle, to remove cones from bowls and vessels. The Slicer (RS205) can also be used as a heavy- duty parting tool. It should be mounted in the Main Handle with the Side Handle assembled at a convenient position on the Slicer blade. It is recommended that the Side Handle be placed in the vertical position to counteract downward forces. The Hooker (RS210) is designed as a safe method of hollowing vessels through narrow openings. It comes fitted with a scraper cutter (RS222) for finishing but also takes the swivel assembly and hollowing tips (RS211C and RS212C). Its design allows for both inboard and outboard turning. It should be fitted to the Main Handle (RS202) and Side Handle (RS203) or alternatively the Arm Brace (RS206).

It enables the turner to reach further over the tool rest than is normally the case when losing control in the face of rotational forces. The addition of a neoprene grip serves to dampen vibration.
