This Clark Deep Hollowing System is unique among the hollowing systems on the market! It is not a regurgitation of a D handle system or a gigantic floor mounted wieldy monster. It comes from years of refinement since 2000. What makes it unique you ask? The swivel pivot mechanism with bearing riding in a slot on the hollowing bar is key! Components are heavy duty with close tolerances to allow the wood-turner to slide and pivot the hollowing bar while maintaining a hold on the bar for reduced effort and improved safety over hand hollowing for sure! The Angle of Attack Adjustment feature is also useful and unique. It allows the craftsman to rotate the bearing holder to change the angle of the cutter without having to remove the bar to loosen the set screws holding the cutter in the end of the bar. Turners have said that this feature alone puts our system on a pedestal above all others out there!
