    and in depth analysis to the discussion of the craft This DVD is the first in a series which will showcase the demonstration skills that have made Glenn so popular on national tours and impart some of his much heeded wisdom from how to pick woodturning tools and how to use them in the most effective way to tips on tool sharpening and grinding There are many excellent woodturners who both in demonstrations and in DVDs show us the level of their skill but there are not so many who share with us why and just how they go about it This is an area where Glenn Lucas excels Glenn is a natural communicator and brings a relaxed warmth to his DVDs which combined with the excellent production values makes them highly watchable time and again Mastering Woodturning Tools Techniques is one of the few woodturning DVDs which really lives up to its name By digging deep into the fundamentals behind woodturning Glenn takes us further towards truly mastering the craft of turning wooden objects than ever before For further information on this valuable addition to the woodturner s resource library go to http www toolpost co uk Editor s

    there are new wheels in town the Cubic Boron Nitride CBN Grinding Wheels and they re set to further revolutionise tool sharpening Cubic Boron Nitride or CBN is a ceramic grain which is nearly as hard as diamond but which succeeds in sharpening High Speed Steel HSS where diamond fails diamond adversely affects the molecular structure of HSS even at low temperatures and so can only be used in water cooled applications CBN grains are bonded to the supporting steel hub in such a way that the wheels can be used dry with no need for coolant and require the application of very little pressure to sharpen woodturning tools and quickly remove material yet leaving a fine finish Very few sparks are produced while tool sharpening and both the tool and the wheel itself remain far cooler in temperature than with other wheels CBN wheels create a grind which is the equivalent of a 100 grit or even finer finish and are available to replace narrow standard or extra width wheels What s more these superior wheels have an almost indefinite life span when treated with care making them excellent value for money Find out more information on how the

    independent adjustment of the tilt of the working axis and the rotation of the workpiece The two movements are each controlled by a large and robust lever allowing firm locking to be achieved without the application of superhuman forces The SPB1020 costs 117 14 excl VAT For the most substantial workpieces yet providing easy locking and a huge range of movement the SPB1050 is available This woodcarving clamp is based on the well known and oft employed spherical ball principle but unlike most other such clamps this one is founded on a truly massive 80 mm 3 15 diameter ball The effect of this is to make locking the clamp a truly finger tip exercise The clamping of all movement is achieved with the use of a single substantial ratchet lever easily accessed yet positioned to avoid any possible obstruction to the working area Some impression of the solidity of construction of this product is indicated by its weight of 7 25 kg The manufacturer s attention to detail is shown in the provision of springs to ease the separation of the clamping rings a small item but adding to the product s feeling of quality and thoughtful development Such capacity flexibility ease of operation and robustness is available for the surprisingly modest sum of 200 95 excl VAT For the woodturning world WivaMac also produces a Woodturners Carving Clamp designated the DB1501 which allows a woodturning chuck to be mounted on the clamp and the clamp to be mounted in the lathe s banjo in place of the toolrest This arrangement gives woodturners a convenient way of holding turned workpieces simplifying the tasks of carving texturing and colouring them The DB1501 costs 141 90 inc VAT Whilst the DB1501 has an M33 x 3 5mm mounting thread for the

    Once mounted on the spindle the block can be turned into what ever shape is required to suit the workpiece and being threaded to match the lathe spindle the jig you create can be removed and re fitted to the spindle as often as the job requires In this way you can build up a complete library of useful jam chucks jigs and fixtures to increase your turning versatility speeding and easing your workflow Because the device is mounted on the spindle thread directly concentricity and repeatability are assured for use time after time gone is the frustration of trying to re mount a block in a chuck whilst maintaining perfect alignment Best results are obtained using fine grained timbers such as boxwood sycamore maple etc and superior long term performance can be had by laminating say three layers of timber to create a very stable workpiece A pilot hole is drilled approximately 1 8 3 mm smaller than the nominal diameter of the tap The tap is entered into the pre drilled hole and rotated with the supporting tailstock advanced simultaneously to maintain centring The workpiece may now be released from the woodturning chuck and screwed directly onto the spindle ready for turning into the desired shape and size Simplicity itself A secure mounting exactly concentric with the spindle of the woodturning lathe precisely sized and shaped to suit your project and at very little cost The taps are available to suit popular spindle sizes and cost from just 15 82 inc VAT 17½ Another superb piece of lateral thinking from Jerry Beall brought to you by The ToolPost The ToolPost is a retailer and distributor of woodturning woodworking and fine woodcarving tools finishes machinery and equipment View the entire range of products at http www toolpost co uk

  • Hunter
    One shortcoming of tungsten carbide is that it does not normally produce as keen an edge as a high speed steel tool or a carbon steel example Unfortunately in woodworking the absolute sharpness of the cutting edge is of vital importance in order to create a clean cut surface at both the macro and micro level Hence most carbide tipped woodturning tools have shown effectiveness as roughing tools but require that the work be cleaned off subsequently using conventional tools The sub surface damage caused by most of the carbide tipped tools used in wood turning is significant This tendency to overly aggressive cutting is exacerbated by the use in such tools of commonly available tool tips designed for engineering applications which generally have too great a clearance angle to allow supported cutting The Hunter tools overcome these limitations thanks to the extensive experience of the company s founder who has an encyclopaedic knowledge of available cutters and cutter technologies The Hunter tools feature cutters that are diamond finished to create a cutting edge which rivals that obtainable with HSS tools they have a profile which gives a fully supported bevel rubbing cut they afford full flexibility in shear cutting angle and they are fully seated both externally and by the use of a fitted mounting screw so that all possibilities of vibration and tip movement are eliminated In short these are the Rolls Royce of carbide tipped woodturning tools Given that the proof of the pudding is said to be in the eating it is significant that Jimmy Clewes widely acknowledged to be one of the most able and creative woodturners in the world has been so impressed with the Hunter tooling approach that he has worked with the company to create a hollowing tool that bears his name
