The Pocket Lathe System is the most accurate tip shaping device on the market today. It is highly recommended for laminated tips. Tip manufacturers recommend it because it has a gentle cutting action that is safe for all tip materials and construction. Other shapers have aggressive abrasives that could damage your tip or just cut too much away. The Pocket Lathe rollers guide the perfect Nickel shape Quick Tip shaper so it removes just enough material to give the perfect final shape.
