No longer available the original design is not strong enough for the forces applied during hollowing to this tool.
I may redesign but very few turners have been interested to order so it does not seem to be a viable product. I suggest the curved holder which seems to work great.
The standard set comes with 1 long, 1 medium, and 2 short segments plus 1 end segment where the cutter mounts.
This holder is designed to solve the problem of needing a variety of curved holders to hollow closed forms.
This holder is meant to be used for BOTH small to large closed forms. It allows the turner to adjust the length of the curve to handle any project. Segments can be added or removed and can be securely mounted either straight or 45 degrees right or left. It can also be used as a straight holder. The base parts are made of 3/4" stainless steel. The end piece can be made for any cutter but the standard is a 3/4" round flat carbide cutter.
The end segment comes standard with an 8-32 tapped hole and is machined to create a mounting area for 3/8" to 3/4" round cutters. The cutter that comes standard is a flat carbide cutter 3/4" round. The end segment can be customized to mount smaller or larger cutters or even be modified to mount a ProForme cutter. One could order separate end segments for different cutters.
Longer segments can be ordered as needed. It allows the turner to adjust the length of the curve for any project.
Each segment can be angled and locked in place by a screw from the bottom on the connecting piece for a variety of curves
All possibilities are not pictured here.
This holder actually makes separate straight and bent holders obsolete!
The end configuration and tapped hole can be customized - just email or call me.
Additional segments can be ordered.
