Well I was not expecting the response to the new hollowing system as I have had. In fact I am happy to say that it has taken over my work load at this present time with everything else being put on hold.
The system being versatile can be used for more than just hollowing and has various optional extras which are as reasonably priced as the main system.
The handle will also accept the crown bowl and spindle gouges as well as an extra foam handle and various other hollowing tools and brass clamped probe which come with two blades.
With the foam extension handle the system with probe is 107 cm/3 ft 6inches in length.
There will also soon be a 5/8th bar to add to the 1/2inch which is supplied at this time as standard.
The picture above shows the most of the optional extras however there is also a shear scraper and extender which is used for finishing and has been design so that the cutting area around its radius is in the trailing mode. This means that when blind turning/hollowing the chance of an unsupported edge/dig in occurring is almost totally removed.
Picture to come shorty.
The system will also accept the new crown texturing tool pictured below.
More tools and updates will be available from my web site soon for UK distribution and I will keep the updates going here as well.
