    decided that The ToolPost would break the mould and devise a relevant solution That solution is the CompacTool set of six short turning tools which we have specifically designed to make turning easier and more successful on a smaller lathe These tools are manufactured exclusively for us by Hamlet Craft Tools in Sheffield UK in M2 High Speed Steel HSS in common with other good turning tools There are no compromises here simply a willingness to identify and resolve a commonplace problem that the rest of the world seems happy to ignore These are not toy tools they are more compact versions of the full size tools with which you may be familiar and are equipped with suitably proportioned handles This unique set comprises 1 2 Roughing Gouge 3 8 Spindle Gouge 3 8 Bowl Gouge 1 16 Narrow Parting Tool with modified tip geometry 1 2 Rolled Edge Skew Chisel 1 x 1 4 Bowl Scraper For the absolute beginner especially if the budget is tight there may be a justification to purchase a carefully selected collection of tools and certainly many folk prefer to give a gift in a pretty box than one that is necessarily the best considered So o o o o o I have relented a little and selected a couple of tool sets from two of the better known manufacturers both of which represent good value for money I have then taken the step beyond and have pleasure in presenting the ToolPost s very own Journeyman selection of woodturning tools Why Journeyman Because in the good old days when most artisans lived at starvation level the next stage of a craftsman s life after completing his apprenticeship was to go out into the world as a Journeyman travelling the country even the world working for different Masters and absorbing all he could of their craft and art before returning home and if he was lucky setting up as a Master tradesman himself What I have tried to accomplish is a selection of tools that will remain with the aspirant turner for as long as he turns barring loss theft or errant behaviour Each and every one of these tools is going to be as useful today as it will the last day you ever turn anything in wood they are both basic and eternal They are not selected on price but solely on the grounds of usefulness I still have every one of these tools in my toolbox today and they form the core of my turning armoury The contents of this veritable Pandora s box The ToolPost Journeyman Turning Tool Set are HCT065 1 1 4 Roughing Gouge with 14 Ash handle HCT068 3 8 Spindle Gouge round bar with 10 Ash handle HCT083 3 8 Bowl Gouge with 14 Ash handle HCT092 3 16 Diamond Parting Tool with 10 Ash handle HCT100 1 2 Rectangular Skew Chisel with 10 Ash handle HCT142 1 x 3 8 Heavy Duty Bowl Scraper with 14

    with some hardwoods which can crack if overheated NB Prices quoted in pounds sterling Value Added Tax will be added to invoices to EU residents unless a valid VAT registration number is quoted when ordering Fluted Parting Tools An even more recent innovation is the fluted parting tool produced by Robert Sorby The advantages to this design is that the wood fibres Standard fluted parting tool bordering the cut line are severed cleanly before the main 2mm parting tool by Robert Sorby part of the blade clears out the bulk of the timber from the kerf This results in a very clean cut surface which normally does not need subsequent cleaning up The Sorby 832H 3 16 has a flute running the length of the bottom edge The tool is used with the flute down onto the toolrest this can cause damage to the toolrest surface which should occasionally be dressed with a file These parting tools should be sharpened by grinding the bevel front face only The tapered profile serves like the diamond section tools to reduce friction in the cut By contrast the narrow Sorby 832H 2mm has the flute on the longer lower of the two bevel faces This tool is sharpened by grinding the short top bevel face only The effect of this configuration is to give a very clean shearing cut as well as a very narrow kerf Beading Tools Bedan These beading tools so useful and much more forgiving than the skew chisel when cutting beads are of square cross section They are easy to use and very effective for cutting external spigots for instance when making chucking spigots When used at a slight angle off square the beading tool will function as a small skew chisel I even remember being taught how to use one of these for skimming ripples off the outside of a bowl If you ve never owned one you ll be amazed how frequently this apparently simple tool can get you out of trouble The bedan looks like a beading tool that has been ground on one bevel only and is originally a French design Maybe a little less forgiving than the beading and parting tool but very effective for planing short spigots All of the above tools except HS11 are suitable for use with the Sorby 970 Sizing Tool NB Prices quoted in pounds sterling Value Added Tax will be added to invoices to EU residents unless a valid VAT registration number is quoted when ordering Narrow Parting Tools In many areas of turning such as box making a narrow parting kerf is very desirable This range of parting tools are all just 1 16 1 6mm wide The depths of the tools vary giving increasing stiffness in use Specialist Parting Tools We offer two parting tool designs which have originated as a direct result of the experience of professional turners The first of these is the Ray Key Tapered Parting Tool which Ray himself describes as a
