    exceptional wear resistance yet retain easy grinding characteristics In fact you can hear the difference when you grind one of these tools The use of these steels produces tools on which the edges outlasted conventional HSS tools several times over in our own severe tests The bowl gouges offered in the unique configurations by The ToolPost the bowl gouges are produced in both Standard and Masterflute profiles seen on the left standard and right Masterflute of the accompanying photograph We also stock the massive 5 8 Celtic grind bowl gouge produced from 3 4 diameter bar stock This range is stocked in both standard and square across grinds in most sizes the exceptions are the 5 8 gouges where the Celtic grind is normally preferred and the 1 4 gouge where a Celtic grind is ineffective For clarity the Celtic grind is shown in the photo right We also offer a choice of handle lengths on most of these tools so that you can benefit from superior cutting technology regardless of whether you have a massive bowl lathe or are a weekend turner with a modest workshop Finally we offer all sizes of gouge with a plain shank sized to fit the Hamlet Multi Handle system The accompanying photograph left shows the difference between the Celtic grind on the left of the photo and the standard grind on the right Both gouges shown are 1 2 Masterflute types So choose the required gouge diameter flute profile material grind type and handle length and treat your self to one or more of these sup erb economically priced gouges Please note that we now stock only the ASP2060 gouges since the price saving in buying the ASP2030 versions is small yet the performance loss by so doing is considerable in our view

  • Multi-Handle
    added to invoices to EU residents unless a valid EU VAT Registration Number is provided Big Brother Little Brother Little Sister Hollowing Systems There are three tools in the Hamlet hollowing system line up ranging from the slim and agile Little Sister thorough the handy Little Brother to the heft of the Big Brother on its sturdy 5 8 inch shaft The principle of the Brother range hollowing tools is a loop or ring cutter which is covered by a highly polished edge protector which acts as the bevel when hollowing preventing the tool from digging in or grabbing The result is a tool which gives an incredibly smooth cut surface to the hollowed object of a standard that many turners would be pleased to be able to achieve on the outside of their work The depth of cut is easily adjusted by slackening a single Allen screw which also allows the head to be swivelled to allow easy access under the shoulders of vessels the total range of movement is around 300 degrees Swan neck stems are also available so that deep undercutting behind deep shoulders in vessels presents no problems The ability to slide the shank of the tool into the handle leaving only the minimum necessary to complete the cut protruding reduces the torque on the handle very considerably The Big Brother version of the tool was very favourably reviewed by master turner John Hunnex in Issue No 92 of Woodturning magazine October 2000 Finally the Siragas influence is completed by the availability of a set of six scraper tips which can be mounted in place of the hollowing cutter For those who may wish to acquire and use these without the full Big Brother system Hamlet have introduced a short handle upon which the scraper tips can be mounted Further advice on the sharpening adjustment and general maintenance of this tool may be found elsewhere on this site by following this link The Siragas Big Brother in close up Above left the tool in elevation showing the sturdy cutter and the close fit of the edge protector Second left the tool opened for inspection showing the cutting loop and the edge protector Lower left the tool in working mode with the head cranked to the left as may be used for working under undercuts full movement is 300 degrees of articulation see photo far right A deceptively simple but incredibly effective piece of tool design from Hamlet Spare Cutters Covers Stems and Side Handle Note Whilst it is acceptable to mount a smaller cutter onto a larger stem in these hollowing systems it is NOT permissible to mount a larger cutter on a smaller stem Cutters and Edge Protectors chip limiters must match in size The 5 8 cutter and cover as supplied with the original Big Brother is no longer available Users are recommended to install one of the current 1 2 cutters with matching cover as now supplied with both Big brother and Little

  • Versachuck Jaws
    the raw material so we can create superior jaws at lower environmental cost A complete table of jaw dimensions is shown below Note that the Extreme Diameter dimensions listed are suitable for use only by well practised and experienced turners who are aware of the dangers inherent in using chucks with jaws projecting beyond the chuck body All turners are also reminded that any chuck jaws can only develop their maximum and design grip when used at their Perfect Circle diameter using jaws at any other setting can lead to insecure workpiece holding YOUR safety is YOUR responsibility don t neglect it We have also developed jaws for special applications The Long Nose jaws feature an internal dovetail recess of 1 1 2 938 mm and an external one of 51 mm 2 because I love this type of jaw and find this to be by far the most useful size These jaws project the work a full 50 mm 2 forward of the normal position with a dovetail jaw allowing plenty of access space behind the workpiece This can be particularly helpful when wet turning as both inside and outside of the piece can be worked on without the need for re chucking Our second specialist jaw is what we ter m a Goblet Jaw designed to give a much firmer hold than can a dovetail jaw especially for work which projects a long way out of the chuck like a goblet One could see this as an update on the venerable and highly effective ring chuck principle To use this jaw one simply creates a parallel spigot 1 1 2 38mm diameter and 3 4 20 mm long at the inner tailstock end of the spigot create a groove about 5 mm wide and 4 mm deep with a parting tool Now close the jaws around the spigot so that the lip at the front edge of the jaws fits into the groove the tapered section of the lip will draw the spigot back into the jaws to create a firm hold on the workpiece as the jaws are tightened The outside of these jaws also features a conventional 75mm 3 dovetail The VersaScrew optional screw chuck for the Versachuck and Model T chucks features a specially designed deep fin screw thread enabling it to cut easily and deeply into the timber without distorting the wood fibres This coupled with the large diameter 12 5 mm and tough steel contribute to making this a very robust screw with a grip like a vice A generously proportioned screwchuck is also available which mounts in the standard jaws of the VersaChuck giving a sturdy first fixing particularly suitable when bowl turning The screw is 12 5 mm diameter and features a slim cross section thread form to minimise disruption of the timber as it is screwed into place whilst also easing the passage of the thread through the workpiece The screw is gold passivated for improved corrosion resistance To further
