Coming Shortly!
Oneway 2436 Lathe
from Stuart Mortimer's workshop

Library photo of this model of lathe, included to whet your appetite.

Further details and pricing to follow shortly, but this is an unmissable opportunity to own a lathe which has been owned and run, since new, by one of the living legends of woodturning. He'll even sign it for you if you ask him nicely!

If your enthusiasm won't wait until the details are to hand, give me a call and I'll put you in touch with the vendor directly.

Kelton & Hamlet ASP
Discontinued Ranges

Hamlet Craft Tools ASP 2060 Gouges

We currently have a selection of Hamlet ASP2060 gouges in stock which we are clearing on behalf of the manufacturer. The reason for the discontinuance of this range is that the specialilsed steel used makes it no longer economical to offer these tools at an affordable price - affordability with quality being a hallmark of the Hamlet range. With a durability of around 10x that of 'normal' M2 High Speed Steel, these are excellent products. They are currently offered at a prices approximately 50% of their last retail prices and are definitely an unrepeatable bargain. Please call or visit the shop to check availability and specific pricing.
Very well worth a look!

Various Kelton Products

Kel McNaughton has been 'rationalising' his product range again, leaving us holding several very attractive but orphaned babies - sorry- tools.

This includes a hollowing system (the type that carries a deep hollowing tool and holds it so that there is no twisting action passed through to the turner). Whilst designed for use with the Kelton Holowers, this will work with almost any hollowing tool and could be a real boon to a turner who no longer has a firm grip - on the tools.

We also have a few Hollow Form Mandrels and matching Faceplates, designed to enable a hollow form to be held on the lathe whilst the chucking recess is removed from the base and final detailing is applied.

Also to be found are ER16 abd ER25 Collet handles, heavy duty 1" scraper blades suitable for mounting on a 5/8" tool shaft or similar, as well as various components of the Kelton Sharpening System, and of the Carving clamp

Please call or visit the shop to check availability and specific pricing.
There are, however, no current products such as centre savers, Kelton hollowers etc. For those, please refer to the
Kelton Tools pages of this site.

This space could be working for you
.......for free!

How does it Work?:- 

This page is provided as a service to our clients.  If you have second-hand equipment which you wish to sell, then (provided that you are a regular client of this shop) you are welcome to use this space to provide details of this equipment to our other visitors.  This is not a free-for-all site, it is strictly for the use of our clients, and its content will be moderated and controlled by yours truly.  Please be pre-warned that we will not allow the page to be used to sell in conflict with our own sales activities or in conflict with with our principles.  Use is also limited to sales of directly woodwork-related items.  We'll allow up to about three months exposure before we remove an advert and please note that you MUST tell us if you sell the item in the meantime so that potential buyers are not mis-led.  Our experience indicates that the most successful thing to be selling on such a page is used machinery - such as your old lathe when you've invested in one of our lovely WivaMac machines!

To request an "advert" to be placed, please drop me an email giving full details of:-

  • The item(s) to be sold - NB: we suggest listing no more than a couple of items per advert.
  • The selling price - and the currency in which it must be paid.
  • Your exact location (so that viewers know where and in which country the goods are located)
  • A contact telephone number that can be published with the information.

If all looks OK, then it will be published as  soon as time allows.  If the advert content or style is inappropriate, then I'll advise you that we are not prepared to carry the advert.  We will not enter into discussion over our reasons for such decisions, as we have better things to do with our time and a good reputation to protect!  I don't want to sound too judgemental about this but this page is intended to help out our client friends, not become a destination in itself.
