SOME OF OUR BESTSELLERS
Pro-Forme Flexi Hollower (Unhandled)
An articulated hollowing tool based on the best hollowing cutter on the market (ie the Pro-Forme Powerhead)
The Flexi comes with 2 high tensile articulating links - one short/straight and one bent, to access the tightest hollow form necks.
Includes one 275mm x 1/2 shaft for small to medium hollow forms.
Combines ideally with our Twin Collet Handle.
Producing several bowls from a single block of wood is safe and easy with the Bowl Saver from Woodcut.
- Save money on your blanks
- Safe and easy to use for all skill levels
- Cuts bowls from 75mm(3") to 300mm(12")
- Accurately removes a perfect bowl every time
- Long lasting Stellite cutter will produce up to 500 bowls
- Works with green or seasoned wood
You get a predictable result every time along with the security of knowing the Saver is coupled to both the toolrest and the tailstock.
The Woodcut Bowlsaver couples to the lathe via the lathe tool post and is also supported by a Morse taper that fits into the tailstock of the lathe.
The Bowlsaver will fit almost all lathes large and small, simply order a toolpost to suit the lathe you are using.
Capacity: The Bowlsaver uses two blades to give a combination of cuts that will remove blanks from 75mm (3”) up to 300mm (12”) from the inside of the mother bowl (outer bowl). The depth that the blades will go into the wood can be adjusted from zero up to 130mm (5”). This in essence will remove a bowl 300mm (12”) x 130mm (5”) from the outer bowl.

What is CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride)?
CBN abrasive is a similar product to synthetic industrial diamonds.
CBN is compposed of nitrogen and boron as very very hard crystals - second in hardness only to diamond. A single layer of CBN grit on the surface of a metal wheel can grind the hardest steel and last for many years.
Our electoplated CBN grinding wheels are machined from solid steel, electroplated with a layer of CBN grit and nickel plated.
A CBN wheel is far better suited for sharpening high speed steels and will withstand the friction from grinding with much less heat produced than with a diamond wheel.
Using a TruGrind CBN wheel
Sharpen your tools in the same way as with a conventional stone wheel on a standard bench grinder.
Wheel speed can be anything up to 3000 rpm. Only minimal pressure is required.
Be careful not to not knock the tool accidentally against the spinning wheel because you might dislodge some of the precious particles of CBN grit.
Treated with care, your CBN wheel will last for many years.
If preferred, the grinder wheel shrouds can be removed as there is no danger of the CBN wheel breaking up, as there can be with conventional wheels.
Normal safety eye protection should however always be used.
