Driven by tradition while pushing the boundaries with innovative products.
Our products are designed by turners, for turners.
Woodcut Tools is bold with product design and challenges assumptions to ensure only the best products are supplied to customers. These values run across the range of products. The Bowlsaver is the only coring product integrated with the lathe tailstock for safety. Unlike other Hollowing products, the Pro-Forme range doesn't require the gauge to be adjusted. The Pro-Mount supports the growing trend for hands free turning, enabling the project to remain in the chuck off the lathe.

"Make shavings, not dust".
- Easiest to sharpen, adjust and use

- User guide supplied and support videos available on You Tube.
The Woodcut Pro-Forme hollowing system includes a hardened M2 high speed steel cutter that is open on the side to prevent clogging, which is common with other end grain/hollowing tools. The adjustable safety gauge determines the depth of cut and prevents dig-ins. Each cutter is both re-sharpenable using a diamond hone and replaceable to ensure a long working life from these tools.
The straight shaft is designed to produce the opening and remove the wood down the sides and across the bottom of the vessel. The bent shaft is designed for working under the shoulder of the work piece through a smaller opening or with a reverse curve shape that limits the approach of the straight tool.
The 20" (508mm) spigot handle has a comfortable cushioned grip for long periods at the lathe and if required two handles can be fitted together for extra length if required.
The Woodcut Pro-Forme is designed to hollow both side and end grain on green or dry wood. However, for an optimal hollowing experience, Woodcut Tools recommends the cutter is regularly sharpened and green wood is used. For guidelines on how to sharpen the cutter please refer to page 6 of the User Manual available.
All Pro-Forme tools feature a heavy duty 5/8" diameter shaft that will reach up to 10" over the tool rest.
The Pro-Forme starter kit includes a handle, cutter head and a straight shaft.
The Pro-Forme Scraper Head is available as an additional accessory and is designed for normal or shear scraping to reduce the need for sanding. The Scraper Head replaces the Power Head on the shank that is best suited for the turning. Two scraper cutters are included with the scraper head.
The Woodcut Mill Drill has been designed by turners, for turners. Designed to make the production of pepper grinders that utilize the CrushGrind® type mechanism. It features two adjustable cutters and has a #2 Morse Taper to fit in the tail stock of most lathes. A 1" hole is drilled in the pepper mill blank and then the Mill Drill is used to enlarge the hole and cut a step for the mechanism. It is a versatile tool and with some adjustment to the cutters it can be used to cut a wide range of hole sizes making it unnecessary to buy a number of drill bits. Your Mill Drill will arrive pre-sharpened ready for immediate use but will need to be sharpened again when the cutters become dull or blunt. The Woodcut Tru-Grind credit card diamond hone is recommended for regular touch-ups. How regularly you sharpen the cutters will depend on the timber being used.
EASY TO USE - Simple design to speed up your production of peppermills. Specifically designed for, but not limited to, using the CrushGrind® mechanism.
ONLY TOOL NEEDED FOR DRILLING - A versatile tool which incorporates a No2 Morse Taper so it will fit into the tail stock of most lathes. With some adjustment to the cutters it can be used to cut a wide range of hole sizes making it unnecessary to buy a number of drill bits. Can be used to hold Forstner drill bits with a 0.39 inch shank.
USER GUIDES & VIDEOS SUPPLIED - An extensive user guide booklet is included in the box with your Mill-Drill. User guide and demonstration videos available on You Tube.
