Simple Rougher – Carbide Tipped Square Wood Lathe Scraper Turning Roughing Tool

February 12th, 2014

Simple RougherTM Carbide Tipped Lathe Tool. To use the Simple Rougher just follow these 3 simple steps: 1. Position the tool rest as close to the work as possible so the carbide cutter is at the lathe center line. 2. Place the tool on the tool rest with the tool shaft parallel with the floor. 3. While securely holding the tool to keep the flat bottom in constant contact with the tool rest slowly plunge the carbide cutter into the work. When roughing with this tool and technique you'll notice right away most of the shock created by interrupted cuts during roughing is now absorbed in the tool rest instead of your hands and arms. As you begin to move the tool across the turning block you'll see how fast these carbide tools cut and how much simpler roughing is with the Simple Rougher.It won't be long until your block is a cylinder and you'll get your first look at what your turning will become. In addition to roughing you'll notice the Simple Rougher is a great tool for shaping the outside radius of a bowl and for turning beads on spindle turnings. Straight line turning is also simplified on projects such as the wishing well seen in the photos of this tool. Also it's a great tool for hollowing out the inside of a bowl. If you're making a box or other vessel that requires square inside corners and a flat bottom this is the tool of choice for that as well. Simple Rougher technical details: Carbide cutter – 9/16" 90° square. Overall tool length – 12". Tool Shaft – Solid steel ½" square with clear zinc plating. Handle tang – ½" diameter x 2½" length. Simple interchangeable handle for this tool is available.

Simple Shear Cutting Finisher – Carbide Wood Turning & Hollowing Tool with 16mm (5/8″) Handle

January 26th, 2014

Simple Shear Cutting FinisherTM Carbide Tipped Lathe Tool. Turning wood with the Simple Shear Cutting FinisherTM that's offered here is as simple as these 4 steps. 1. Position the tool rest as close to the work as possible so the carbide cutter is at the lathe center line. 2. Place the tool on the tool rest with the tool shaft parallel with the floor. 3. Rotate the tool handle about its axis (similar to twisting a motorcycle throttle) approximately 35° in the direction you will be cutting. 4. While securely holding the tool slowly plunge the carbide cutter into the work. As you begin to move the tool across the turning and your project takes shape, you will quickly discover how well these carbide tools cut and how simple it is to make beautiful turnings. The Simple Shear Cutting FinisherTM provides the very best surface finish possible with a carbide tipped wood turning tool. The reason for this is the saucer shaped carbide cutter. The round tool shaft allows the tool to be rotated about its axis so the cutter is presented to the work at an angle. This creates a shearing cut much like a conventional bowl or spindle gouge and leaves a superior surface finish compared to other wood turning tools that are held flat and make scraping cuts. Although this is a great benefit on all types of wood it is especially important when cutting soft wood such as spalted Maple. Flat topped carbide cutters can leave tear out when used on really soft wood. However, the saucer shaped carbide cutter used on the Simple Shear Cutting FinisherTM cleanly slices the soft fibers off the vessel due to the shear cutting action, similar to conventional bowl and spindle gouges. The result is a far superior surface finish. Simple Shear Cutting FinisherTM technical details:Carbide cutter – ½" diameter – saucer shaped shear cutting. Overall tool length – 24". Tool Shaft – Solid steel 5/8" diameter with clear zinc plating. Handle – Rubber golf grip.
