    be used to sharpen carving and woodturning tools but also bench and framing chisels plane irons router bits garden tools and much more One unavoidable drawback up until now has been the fact that the abrasive belts are naturally consumable and that constitutes an on going operational cost The ToolPost has helped to minimise this drawback however by working closely with one of the most respected abrasive suppliers Europe wide in the development of top quality affordable replacement belts for the Pro Edge system ones which offer outstanding levels of performance In fact these replacement belts are even reckoned by users to out perform the originals yet are offered at a lower price The ToolPost keenly understands the importance of a perfectly sharpened woodcarving or turning tool but also likes to offer value as well as quality at all times The provision of these high performance replacement belts for the Pro Edge system at such a low price means the belts can be changed more frequently and woodturners can enjoy an enhanced fresh performance each and every time Find out more at The ToolPost website at http www toolpost co uk index html Editor s Note The ToolPost http www

    the size of woodturning lathe should reflect that for instance you could consider the tabletop lathes now available on the market Obviously larger turning projects such as large bowls newel posts portico columns tabletops and furniture components will require an altogether sturdier lathe or one with specific workpiece capacity Remember to size up your workspace and check that your lathe will fit If you re unsure about exactly what you will be turning then think big You can of course turn smaller projects on larger lathes but not the other way round Then do your research into the various brands of woodturning lathes on the market and which brands offer which benefits Look for a brand which is established and which has received good reviews which has technical and sales support in your market and ensure that the lathe manufacturer offers a comprehensive range of lathe accessories available so that your lathe can grow and adapt along with your skills and ambitions Finally don t be led purely by price This is not one of those woodturning tools where you can afford to cut corners with woodturning lathes you very much get what you pay for Trying to save yourself a few pounds and going for a cheaper lower quality lathe will reveal itself to be a frustrating false economy when you soon have to upgrade your lathe in order to progress in your craft If in doubt trust the range of woodturning lathes found at the online home of The ToolPost http www toolpost co uk index html or in the Didcot store Here you will find only those lathes which the experts at The ToolPost personally recommend and those which they know to be the best quality and therefore the best value Editor s Note The ToolPost http

    of the tool along the rest Many low cost toolrests are too slender in section to give adequate support to the tool and although cast iron can be a good material from which to make a rest many low cost castings contain imperfections that lead to early and catastrophic breakage Aware of the limitations of some of the more cheaply made toolposts and rests particularly those which are poorly cast or made from low grade steel The ToolPost set out to find a top quality toolrest system to stock in its Didcot store and online at www toolpost co uk The Modular Tool Rest System from Robert Sorby fits the bill thanks to cross bars made from high grade hardened steel which is nigh on impossible to mark with tool edges This eliminates the notching problem which can spoil the enjoyment of a smooth turning experience The modular aspect of this system allows the turner to choose the toolpost that fits their specific woodturning lathe choosing from stems which are available in ½ 5 8 ¾ 1 25mm and 30mm diameter A crossbar is then selected which will screw on to the stem to make up the entire toolrest with a range of different crossbars available for internal and external bowl turning as well as various lengths of straight crossbars There is also a box scraper platform included in the system which provides easy access and improved stability when using a scraper within the confines of a box The Modular Tool Rest System from Robert Sorby available from The ToolPost at http www toolpost co uk index html may be a simple piece of kit but it can significantly improve the woodturning experience and can make an otherwise barely satisfactory lathe into something of value Editor s Note The ToolPost

    to be found here including Henry Taylor Robert Sorby Hamlet Kelton Crown Hunter and BCT to name but a few You won t find many generic sets of woodturning tools either because The ToolPost is run by woodturners for woodturners and most woodturners will tell you that building your own selection of trusty hand picked individual tools is far superior to most of the tool sets out there Peter Hemsley has been proprietor of The ToolPost for 14 years and has been an enthusiastic woodturner for even longer having first learned the craft at school and taken it up again more than 20 years ago The fact that The ToolPost is run by someone passionate about woodturning and carving and with many years experience in the industry is significant because it means that customers of The ToolPost know that they will only be offered woodturning tools which Peter would and usually does use himself All products are tested by the man himself and only those that make the grade get to grace the ToolPost shelves It also means that customers get to take advantage of Peter s vast experience and impressive knowledge on just about every woodturning tool out there and in the unlikely instance of The ToolPost not stocking a particular product then Peter and the ToolPost team will do their very best to track it down Take a look at the huge range of woodcarving and woodturning tools and other accessories available online at http www toolpost co uk index html but better yet drop by the upcoming Spring Open House on 25th and 26th May in The ToolPost store in Oxfordshire and meet the man himself Full details are available on the website Editor s Note The ToolPost http www toolpost co uk index html is represented

  • Microclene
    is one of the occupational hazards of being a woodturner or carver Unfortunately even the very best dust extraction equipment such as the CamVac range of extractors cannot ensure complete elimination of ambient dust When it comes to the removal of residual dust particles in the air there is a simple low cost and yet highly effective solution however Microclene Air Filters Award winning Microclene Air Filters have been proven to effectively filter out harmful airborne ambient dust and are available in a wide range of models of varying sizes depending on the particular needs of your workshop For instance if you own a small workshop you may find the smaller bench mountable MC100 filter sufficient for your needs while more substantial filters which can be mounted on the wall or ceiling such as the MC670 and MC780 units are more appropriate for larger workshops The overhead mounted MC3000 meanwhile has four motors and is capable of clearing the air of the most spacious and productive of workshops All of the Microclene Air Filters are just as quiet as they are effective and represent one of the cheapest methods of dust control on the market As well as being one of the UK s leading stockists of woodturning tools The ToolPost is also a hub of information both through the workshops demonstrations and Open Houses held at the Didcot shop and via the information available at the website at http www toolpost co uk index html Take a look at the Health Safety section of the website to find out more Microclene dust extraction in general and wider issues surrounding safety in the workshop Editor s Note The ToolPost http www toolpost co uk index html is represented by the search engine advertising and digital marketing specialists Jumping Spider Media

    absolutely minimising the possibility of tip vibration in use and the overall length of the unhandled tool is 350mm 14in A swiveling head rotating cutter and adjustable rake angle means that this new scraper lives up to its multi angle name and makes it truly multi purpose The tool s capabilities include shear scraping negative rake scraping and working within hollow forms and bowls This is a heavy and bulky woodturning tool but only in a positive way Woodturning magazine found the tool bulk to be very reassuring The bulk doesn t interfere with the performance either as the angled machined flats on the shaft mean that the tool can be used easily between the left and right hand for dual direction shear scraping The Multi Angle Scraper is also impressively hard wearing thanks to a corrosion resisting coating on the main tool shaft and head Durability in use is assured by a replaceable tip which has a top layer of alloy designed specifically to hold its edge well yet which sharpens up quickly and easily producing a very effective cutting burr Woodturning magazine tested the Multi Angle Scraper first by getting a ripple free finish on a wet turned oak bowl and then by taking out the tooling marks on the inside of an elm vessel The verdict was that this is a tool highly capable of quickly removing large quantities of wood while achieving a fine finishing cut at the same time The tool scored impressively 95 for ease of use and 100 for performance and build quality To try out the Multi Angle Scraper for yourself contact The ToolPost on 01235 511101 or visit the website at http www toolpost co uk index html Editor s Note The ToolPost http www toolpost co uk index html is
