Crown ST2w Spiralling and Texturing system

The Crown "Revolution" series comprises both Hollowing tools and Texturing tools.  The smart Hollowing system, with its soft cushioned handle (also available separately) is available with either a 1/2" shaft or a 5/8" shaft to suit the work in hand.  The handle may be used with either stem size.

The system is delivered complete with a substantial array of alternative cutter styles - a total of five tips in all - as well as a substantial screw-in side handle!  Having many components turned from brass, this tool has a very substantial feel and may be the closest any woodturning tool ever came to being classifiable as "bling".  However, the important fact is that it works - and works well.

Also listed in this section are the standard and miniature texturing and spiraling tools which feature wooden handles in the best Crown tradition.  The larger tool is supplied with two spiraling and one texturing cutters and has a graduated toolrest support permitting easy repeating of a pattern and free movement of the tool on the toolrest.  The smaller system comes with two cutters and a similar toolrest support.

Guy Ravine Chattertool

Chatterwork is a relatively simple and quick way of enhancing smaller turned work and is especially effective on end grain of hardwoods: it can also be combined to good effect with colouring.  This handy chattertool, designed by pro turner Guy Ravine is supplied with two blades, one round-tipped, the other square-tipped, allowing  a variety of patterns to be created.  Accompanying notes by the designer give hints on both use and sharpening

Bill Jones made the skill of hand thread chasing better known through his articles in "Woodturning" magazine.  These tools make it possible for every turner to 'have a go' at producing items with screwed lids and fixings, produced with nothing more than these tools, a standard woodturning lathe - and your skill.
