Tools - Calor Style Tapers

These 'calor style' tapers are made of 304 Stainless Steel. These tapers can be autoclaved and reused.

Each taper is 2" in length and tapers down 2 gauges smaller than the listed size.

Calor style tapers are thicker and recessed so you can fit the jewelry inside the taper; this helps prevent slippage while chasing the jewellery through.
