  • Skew Chisels
    These skews are available in a choice of widths from 1 2 to 1 1 2 but a good rule of thumb would be to use a 1 version unless you do a lot of miniature work The bevel angle of these tools is usually very small around thirty to forty degrees included angle Rectangular plain Skew Chisels These are the traditional shape of skew chisel made from square section high speed steel A little more hefty than the oval skews but possibly more stable because of that and very much at home with large scale work such as newel posts Running a file along the lower corners will help to prevent toolrest scoring and make these tools smoother in the roll action Maybe use a rather more obtuse bevel angle than on the slimmer oval skews my own preference being for around 40 degrees 80 degrees included angle In this form the skew is a much more easily managed 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 Square Straight Chisels Maybe best described as the Unskewed Skew This is the original pattern of tool used for planing cylindrical and tapering workpieces For those involved in pole lathe turning this is still the preferred form of chisel and for many the tool is more comfortable to present at the correct planing angle than the skew Round Edge Skew Chisels It has long been the practice of knowledgeable turners to file or grind the corners off their tools in order that they slide more easily along the toolrest Now Henry Taylor have taken the risk out of doing that by supplying skew chisels which although of basically rectangular cross section giving them more stability than an oval skew have smoothly rounded corners to the blade for easier s l i d e Further examples of this genre are available on the Hamlet Tools page 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 Raffan Design Curved Skews The name Richard Raffan should need no introduction to any knowledgeable turner This English born Australian dwelling turning virtuoso is very innovative in his approaches to the craft and this has led him to develop many novel methods of working and tools to suit One tool which he was responsible for formalising in use was the curved skew and Henry Taylor now produce three versions of this versatile form of the skew to Richard s specification These tools are of heavy section yet the curved cutting edge makes them very easy to handle Richard even has a unique method of turning long thin spindles holding the skew upside down see his book Woodturning with Richard Raffan Now becoming a firm favourite with many pro turners the curved skew could be just the thing to help you

  • Scrapers
    shown in daiagram C above Of this whole group only the Sorby 828H is standard weight all of the others are the very desirable Extra Heavy Duty weight In addition to these designs of curved scrapers both the Ray Key and Richard Raffan sections include curved scrapers Also check out the heavy duty bowl scrapers produced by Hamlet and Crown Tools 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 Round Side Cutting Scrapers Diagram F above indicates the shape of these tools They are at their best when working in goblets eggcups chalices and similar vessels as well as in bowl turning The two examples here are standard weight tools made of 1 4 steel Given a bit of judicious re grinding it is possible to produce from one of these shapes scrapers that can reach almost anywhere Straight Edged Scrapers This large group includes both square scrapers and skew scrapers the difference being that a square scraper is cut square across at 90 degrees to the tool axis diagram J whilst a skew scraper has its edge ground to make an angle of around 20 degrees to the tool axis diagram K All of the standard weight models have straight across grinds but in the Heavy Duty table all are skew ground except the Taylor HS14 These tools are especially useful when finishing the surface of platters trays and tabletops but do need a degree of care in use to avoid leaving grooves behind In this respect the skew designs are easier to handle than the straight grinds The Taylor HS14 is ground square across All others are skew grinds The HS20 is left cutting The HS19 is right cutting as shown below These hefty Taylor models are all from the Peter Child Design Series 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 Diamond Side Cut Scrapers as shown in diagram G above are used primarily in box production and similar tasks Normally these tools have a relief cut behind the side cutting edge to limit the amount of edge in contact with the lateral cut The Sorby 829H is a new design made specifically for use in boxes and features a slightly rounded corner between the nose and the side edges There is also a Gold Collection version of this tool with Sorby s titanium nitride coating for increased edge life between sharpenings Diamond Point Scrapers One of the few scraper designs which may be found in use in spindle turning However even in that application our advice would be to use a skew chisel to cut grooves instead This allows the choice of using the skew conventionally to cut clean grooves of a chosen vee angle or with its side flat on the rest to scrape a fixed angle

  • Measuring Instruments & Eqpt.
    For marking out and especially for scribing the position of a chuck recess the dividers both spring and stiff joint are invaluable NOTE If using outside calipers to gauge the diameter of rotating parts on the lathe it is essential that you round over the ends of the caliper arms where they touch the wood so that there is no chance of a dig in The calipers as supplied are NOT suitable for use on rotating wooden parts and MUST be modified by you the user if it is your intention to use them in this way Planet Calipers In addition to the caliper range described above we also keep a range of economically priced products under the Planet brand which offer decent functionality with affordability This range covers both inside and outside calipers as well as wall thickness calipers in various designs and a depth gauge See illustrations below 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 Sizing Tool A quite different device is the 970 sizin g tool which slips on to a parting or beading bedan tool and greatly simplifies turning spigots to size Simply pre set the gap between the parting tool tip and the rubbing cheek on the sizing tool and turn away until the tool drops over the spigot As many spigots as you wish and all exactly the same size Easy to adjust yet secure once locked into position using the two thumbscrews the 970 Sizing Tool is one tool no spindle turner should be without Direct Reading Caliper This caliper from Veritas allows you to see the measured dimension at a glance and without the need to turn your head sideways to read
