Clark Woodturning Tools
We are currently experiencing delays in filling orders for Hollowing Systems due to Covid-19 shutdown preventing us from getting raw metal for the hollowing bars. We hope this will be resolved soon but somewhat unsure of the timing.
At TSDr, LLC , we manufacture tools for wood-turning lathes featuring; the Clark Steady Rest, the patented Clark Deep Hollowing System, as well as the Clark Sphere Turning Jig! Have peace of mind in The Dr's systems, we will work with you to make you happy and will not settle till your are 100% satisfied. All of our tooling systems are designed and manufactured to order by Dr. Keith and Alex Clark.
Clark Deep Hollowing
Clark Deep Hollowing System Don't be limited by other systems - paired with a Clark Steady Rest, the proper cutting tip, our guarded tool rest, and our Fulcrum Support Tube accessory, this system cannot be beaten!
Clark Steady Rest
Clark Steady Rests - customized to fit your lathe with color, number/position of arms, and base style ready to fit your personal lathe.
Clark Sphere Turning Jig
Clark Sphere Turning Jig uses 2 thrust bearings and has gross and fine adjustments of diameter.
The new accessory pictured here provides and extension from the standard 1.25" to a 1.75" diameter bar which includes a larger FULCRUM SUPPORT TUBE to allow the basic Clark Deep Hollowing System to hollow vibration free to beyond 3 feet deep while preserving all the features of the standard system! We now have a completely expandable setup to accommodate a wider depth of hollowing and an improved experience between 12 and 36 inches deep! Click on the photo...
John Leggett demonstrates the full system in action with a 3 arm Clark Steady Rest on a 20" swing Powermatic lathe.
Video Thickness Guide
Now thickness indication with camera and TV much improves the awareness of where the cutter tip is located inside the wood being hollowed. Turners have said that this if far superior to using a laser guide!
New Segmented Hollowing Bar
This is the new design for out hollowing bar. Now the standard bar is 30" long to allow hollowing to the same 20-30 inch depth but has basically a handle 18" long to extend the bar to allow a portion to attach the laser onto. The laser can now be easily removed or replaced just by taking the extension on and off for a much more convenient deployment of laser or camera thickness guide device. The extension can also be used as a hollowing bar for external use or small hollowing projects. The extension can be used as a handle for general turning! The 30" hollowing bar can be used for smaller projects. You can order a 24" bar with 12" extension for a mini lathe with 12-14 inch swing.
Deep hollowing a large mesquite burl with the Clark Deep Hollowing System and Steady Rest
John Tisdale of Dallas Texas creates unique and large hollow forms from mesquite burls. This is a very challenging task. See him working on perhaps the largest mesquite burl ever hollowed. The 700 pound hunk of gnarly wood has required many special modifications in his shop.
