John Jordan - Straight Tool 3/4"


The problem with most available "hollowing" tools is that the cutting edge is not on center, which will cause them to grab and catch, they are the wrong shape, or simply too big to fit into small opening hollow turnings. Tool companies or people who don't actually use the tools usually produce them, and they don't really understand the concepts.

The straight tool is 20.5" long. The hook tool comes in two sizes: the #1 hook is for most hollow turning and the #2 hook will reach further into large pieces when needed. They may be used in a variety of handles - the armbrace style handle is preferred. They also work well with the captured boring handles.

The tools are 3/4" in diameter and come with 3/16" HSS removable tips, which are easily sharpened with the sharpening jig or by hand. The #1 hook is approx. 16" long and the #2 hook and straight tool are each approximately 20" long. All of the tools have a black oxide finish. These are the best hook tools available for doing small opening hollow turnings - period.
