FireKist Straight 1/4 Inch Double Ended Swivel
These are the double sided, Stainless Steel swivels everyone (ok.. mostly glassblowers) have been talking about! Made in USA, Rochester, MN.
304 Stainless- will not rust under normal use. Don’t put them in bleach, strong acid, or, I’ve been told, blood. (304 is a slightly magnetic stainless, but don’t expect to be able to hold your swivel up with a magnet) This also means the swivel is lightweight.
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, and to catch it, 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.
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.
