TM662R5 MUDTOOL #5 RIB, VERY SOFT, RED
Measures approximately 4.19" x 2.0".
Designed by potter Michael Sherrill, these ribs are made from a material known in industry as the "stainless steel of plastics" because of its wearing qualities. Unlike rubber, this material will not develop burrs. In fact, the more your use it the nicer it becomes. These ribs will actually burnish themselves as you use them. The different stiffness and shapes will allow you to find the ones to fit your working styles.
Four different stiffnesses - Four different colors
- Very Soft / Red: Great for compressing slabs, burnishing rims, chamois, and handbuilding.
- Soft Flex / Yellow: Perfect for smoothing, burnishing, porcelain, throwing, and handbuilding.
- Medium Flex / Chartreuse: Great for compressing bottoms, burnishing, trim marks, throwing, and handbuilding.
- Firm Flex / Blue: Still flexible but stiffer. Great for high burnish and for larger work
