It all started with Model Horses...

…when Debbi, the owner of the Sculpting Studio, needed something better than her cheap electric Dremel and Foredom flex shaft grinders she was using to sculpt from life. Debbi said these tools vibrated too much causing her to damage her original sculptures. She just couldn’t add the fine details into her horses manes and tails to give them that realistic look. To make matters worse, these tools aggravated her carpal tunnel syndrome making her hands numb.

After trying just about every carver on the market, she was at wit’s end. There wasn’t a tool on planet earth capable of getting the detail she needed for her model horses. So, she said “I will make my own carver!” So she did! She invented the Vortex high speed carver. Take a look at her Vortex carver and see her amazing model horses:

Amazing Sculpt & FXclay 2-Part Sculpting Clays

Debbi needed a modeling and carving clay which exceeded her highest standards to create the intricacies found in her world class model horse limited editions. She wanted a nice white clay for seam filling and a fine grain clay for achieving the most exacting details when sculpting her originals models and limited edition duplicates. She created two types of clays, “Amazing Sculpt” and “FXclay”. Both are 2-Part clays that self harden which you can discover below.

Bur Extractor Tool is designed to help you remove the smallest of burs from your Vortex F5 Carver. We found very small steel needle nose pliers works best. These heat treated steel needle nose pliers is the perfect tool for removing the small burs like the FG-33½ or FG-¼. These needle nose pliers feature a nonslip comfort grip and a drop forged construction for added durability.

1) Twist Vortex F5 cap to the open position.
2) Grip “shaft” of bur with Extractor Tool.
3) Carefully nudge the bur from the spindle.
4) Replace bur by wiping the shaft clean.
5) Seat bur completely into the spindle.
6) Twist Vortex F5 cap to the close position.

Why We Use Ceramic Bearings

Ceramic Bearings are ideal for the Vortex F5. They are superior to common steel bearings in many ways. Ceramic is the ideal material for obtaining higher RPM (faster speed).

Ceramic balls need less lubricant and have a greater hardness than steel balls. This contributes to increased bearing life. Thermal properties of ceramic balls are more superior than steel resulting in less heat generation at higher speeds.

Ceramic bearing assemblies use ceramic balls but they are constructed with steel inner and outer rings. Ceramic balls weigh up to 40% less than steel balls. This reduces centrifugal loading so ceramic bearings can operate up to 50% faster. Also, the outer race groove exerts less force against the ball as the bearing spins, reducing the friction and rolling resistance. The final results, ceramic balls allows the bearing to spin faster and uses less energy to maintain rotational speed.

By not having to insert burs by bear down on a hard surface like other carving tools, radial bearings can be utilized instead of angular bearings. Radial bearings are better suited for carving on their sides. Angular bearings which are primarily used in a vertical position and drilling.

Permanently Lubed for Life Turbine Bearings

Within the nosecone of the Vortex F5, there is a turbine bearing assembly. The bearings are permanently lubed and never need oiling. Warning: using an in-line mist fog oiler or placing drops of oil or cleaner into the hose may cause damage to the carver and void the warranty.
