    hard as diamond but that is effective for the sharpening of High Speed Steel the material from which turning tools are generally made Although diamond has been experimented with as a material to grind tools on it is very detrimental when used as an abrasive grain for the grinding of tools on a high speed dry wheel and is therefore never used by wise turners in such an application CBN grinding wheels are different and can last almost indefinitely if looked after properly They are available from us in a choice of grit grades including Extra Fine Standard and Coarse However we also stock what could only be described as the ultimate Aluminium Oxide grinding wheel the O Donnell Ruby wheel its increased sharpness than the grey white or pink aluminium wheel alternatives allowing it to keep its shape more effectively than any of them yet available at very affordable prices in sizes to suit a wide range of grinders Wait did we suggest that the Ruby wheel was the ultimate One might need to rethink that opinion on encountering another of O Donnell s acclaimed creations the Blue Ceramic grinding wheel Aside from its pale blue colour this wheel cuts even faster than the Ruby while also producing less heat due to its micro grain grit structure and the grit bonding characteristics It is a more specialised wheel that is best suited to the workshops of more competent turners who are comfortable with its high rate of material removal Finally we can t fail to mention the set of three highly informative fully encapsulated wallcharts that we also stock These are laminated practical works of reference telling you what bevel angle to grind on a specific woodturning tool or how the grind can be modified for better performance They

    chopping boards and kitchen display units for a local company Rough Stuff Oak its customers mostly made up of catering companies and high street restaurants Interviewed for the article was company co founder Matt Cannon who described his relationship with the prison as pretty challenging He continued If something happens in the prison we can t be told for security reasons So for example if there s a lockdown we won t be told when it s happening why it s happening or when it ll end There s complete radio silence and when we call the prison they can t tell us anything Production can stop for days or even weeks as a result of lockdowns and other incidents although Cannon has described most customers as very understanding of such delays Naturally the prison environment means other differences from more traditional woodturning businesses While the company has outgrown its existing workshop for instance the matter of relocation is even more complicated than it would be in the normal world Cannon observing What should have taken two weeks has taken over two months and we still don t have phones or computers in the workshop However there s no question of why this unique woodturning business exists As Cannon puts it in the article There are lots of reasons We want to do something good and make a difference Also from a marketing perspective the fact our products are made in prison does differentiate us Such companies play a big role in the rehabilitation and management of the prison population benefitting the inmates themselves but also their family and the wider community It is certainly intriguing to read of ways like this one in which woodturning is being used for wider social good whatever your relationship with and or attitudes

  • CarterTool
    10 year old Spending much of his early childhood around his Dad s engineering firm and therefore coming in close contact with metal in his formative years Paul soon began to learn wood turning s ins and outs but there was one problem He found himself doing a huge amount of sharpening and after being informed by his supremely experienced metallurgist father that he was using tools made from a less durable grade of steel Paul was soon inspired to create a much better quality tool for himself A lot of diligence and effort was required to make Paul s dream a reality but a reality it most certainly became in large part thanks to his use of only the very best material M42 High Speed Steel Not only is this metal precision machined to create these tools exceptional form but it is subsequently heat treated to 68HRC before being ground to a razor sharp edge That edge is one that retains its astonishing sharpness for a simply extraordinary period of time even under the most intense pressure Paul coupled his superb new tools with a handle made of aircraft grade aluminium styled for maximum comfort and having as near a perfect balance as we have ever felt The blades are secured in the handles with set screws and showing the pride in product and attention to detail typical of Carter Son Toolworks the blades even feature flats machined to receive the bearing points of the screws eliminating the risk of burring on the shaft and consequent jamming of the tool in the handle In the words of one turner we spoke to When I first used this tool it was the sharpest gouge I had ever used after using it for three days it is still the sharpest gouge
