|No. 66 Bronze Beading Tool and Blade Set
This Bronze Beading Tool can quickly produce a wide range of decorative profiles without the fuss and fiddle of setting up an electric router.
Derived from an early, generously proportioned Stanley No. 66, it has a polished cast Bronze body and Brass blade clamp. Two fences are included, one for curved work and one for straight work, and can be adjusted along the slot across the bottom of the tool.
The Beading Tool comes with seven double-ended blades for a total of 14 different profiles for beading, reeding, and fluting, and a double-ended 1/8" and 1/4" router blade. Also included is a double-ended blade blank that can be worked with files to make your own shapes, which makes quick work of reproducing small pieces of molding for repair or restoration.
The blade profiles include:
1/16", 5/64", 1/8", 5/32", 3/16", and 1/4" Single Beads
3/32" and 1/8" Fluting
1/8" Double Reed
1/16" and 5/64" Triple Reeds
1/16" Quadruple Reed
3/32" Double Concave
3/32" Double Convex
1/8" and 1/4" Routers
Blades are 5/8" wide x .060" thick and made from hardened, A2 Tool Steel. Will also fit the antique Stanley No. 66.
