1/4″ swivels are now VERSION 2 with 55% larger bore airway than original version. These are the double sided, Stainless Steel swivels everyone (ok.. mostly glassblowers) has been talking about! Made from 304 Stainless they are light weight and will not rust under normal use. Don’t put them in bleach, strong acid.
Double Sided – 2 swivels in one. Straight swivels will last twice as long. If one side does bind up you have the chance to see that happen since the other side will be spinning.
At the bench, since both legs of the 90° swivel, you won’t experience torque as you move your piece from one hand to the other or whatever position you put your work into.
These have received Rave reviews from lampworkers around the World. On the American Scientific Glassblowers Society Facebook page and on TalkGlass.com page. These are the same great swivels that Blastshield is carrying. I am the sole supplier of these swivels in the UK.
If you do not like it, return it within 30 days for a refund of the purchase price, minus £6 shipping.
Care instructions: Clean with soap and water every 3-6 months and immediately lubricate with lightweight oil. 3 in 1 is fine. This keeps the water from drying and causing hard water buildup. If your water is especially hard wash with rubbing alcohol. If you’ve gotten hard water buildup, try soaking the swivel overnight in vinegar.
