Swivel Base Kit for Sculpture - ST-KB1
This base was developed to the highest standards of demanding sculpture professionals.
For this reason, ergonomics were designed so that the base can be used, almost completely eliminating the weight of the work, obtaining a smooth and soft rotation.
The aluminum base is machined on a CNC lathe, which guarantees manufacturing accuracy. After machining, it is polished to give a semi-gloss aspect to the base.
The difference in this kit is that an MDF disk is supplied near the base and serves as support for the work, this disk or base is fixed with three brass pins screwed into the aluminum, this facilitates the exchange of these disks leaving the base free to be used in more than one job. Another important aspect is that the MDF bases supplied already have two threaded holes for fixing the threaded bar that will serve as a support or structure for the work. The user can also modify the base lubricant, using more special lubricants that reduce speed and increase the turning force or thinner lubricants that increase the speed and reduce the turning force. In addition, access to the fixing screw is simple and easy by simply turning the base upside down. The rubber ring does not cover the screw area to facilitate maintenance and access to it.
This tool was developed to assist in the process of sculpting in all types of heated or cold clays. It can also be used to sculpt waxes at room temperature or heated that have higher hardness than extra hard clays.
