  • Turning Tools Index
    of the site as follows Kryo bowl gouges Kryo spindle gouges Kryo roughing gouges When a tool manufacturer has been in continuous production for around 200 years you know that they know what they re doing In the business of toolmaking experience counts In choosing to work with and to supply tools by Henry Taylor Robert Sorby and other fine quality manufacturers we are both making a statement about our values and giving you the opportunity to purchase and to enjoy using these fine tools Our reasons for selling and using these fine tools is that we believe them to be the finest woodturning tools available anywhere in the world today Then you may ask why two principal manufacturers They can t both be best can they Well in a way yes they can because they each have their own specialities Robert Sorby are particularly innovative in their designs and thorough in their development resulting in their offering a great range of technical tools catering for almost every conceivable woodturner s needs On the other hand Henry Taylor work very closely with a wide group of professional turners and bring the experience of those turners to bear in the design of tools reflecting the specialised techniques of those turners In addition they produce a broad range of fine woodturning tools in the best British tradition Finally we also select some suppliers who produce high quality tools at a somewhat lower price suitable for the budget conscious user though it must be said that the tools coming from Hamlet Craft Tools in particular and Crown Tools are showing them to be manufacturers of great creativity and originality and not afraid to put time and effort into new developments Back to top of page All of the tools in this hand picked selection are High Speed Steel to ensure a long edge life and reduced sharpening frequency They are fitted with robust balanced handles of good length of lacquered beech in the case of Henry Taylor and Crown Tools and untreated ash on the Robert Sorby and Hamlet tools Solid brass ferrules complete the fitting of handle to blade in both cases Every tool produced by these expert manufacturers is individually hardness tested hand ground and marked with the manufacturer s brand Your guarantee of quality Excepting the tools sold specifically as un handled Back to top of page Technical Notes You will not find many sets of tools in this catalogue The only turner who can get real value from a set of tools is the guy who turns to a recipe that s designed to fit the tools in the set And that would be a criminal waste of the joy and freedom that woodturning offers Buy your tools because you know why and how you ll use every single one If buying a set saves you a little money on a cost per tool basis you can almost guarantee that it will be a bad buy on a cost
