Bone Tipping Tool
If you have experience with applying the “U” tips to the ends of spiral and spring steel bones you will understand the value of this machine/tool. The bone tipping machine/tool applies “U” tips neatly, securely and efficiently to both spring steel and spiral steel bones and it can apply both sizes of tips! We began by calling this a “machine” as it is more substantial than a hand tool, but the term “machine” could be misinterpreted as meaning that the process is automated, which it is not. It is a hand press machine and requires power from a person. The terms “machine” and “tool” are used interchangeably on all literature regarding this item.
Designed with the costume shop and custom corset builder in mind these tools (there are two to choose from) were created to simplify the process of tipping bones so that anyone in your shop can do the job and do it well. If you, or your staff, suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome or any other disorder affecting the hands one of these machines is a must.
While both machines will tip two sizes of bones they do offer somewhat different options and it is important to read all descriptions to best decide the machine which will suit your purposes and your budget.
The bone tipping machine above performs two processes. It both CUTS
and TIPS your bones! The arbor press offers substantial strength and
this enables you to cut the bones you are working with before tipping
them. This involves two steps – one to cut the bones and one to
tip the bones and neither process requires much strength on the part
of the individual. A real asset to those producing large numbers of
corsets as it saves time – which lowers your cost, and it saves
your hands which is a long term investment.
This is a multipurpose bone tipping machine that will SET EYELETS and TIP BONES! However it CANNOT cut bones. The design of this machine does not give it the strength required to cut bones and using it for this purpose will damage the machine. The advantage to this bone tipping machine is the fact it can be used for two purposes. For those who are custom making corsets or costumes this may be the better choice as you get securely tipped bones and well set eyelets - and the cutting of bones is not the issue it is with mass production. YOU NEED TO PRE-CUT YOUR BONES FOR THIS MACHINE.
The dies are sold separately for those of you who already have an
Arbor press or already have our eyelet setting machine. The dies have
been custom designed and engineered, they are not mass produced but
made by one individual, dies are the most expensive part of the product
and should be treated with care. Please follow all instructions that
