This item comprises a mounting stem, upon which is mounted a special TCT cutter from Hunter Tool Systems, the carbide woodturning tools specialists. The mounting stem fits into the end of the adjustment arm of the DB1240HR Heinz Risse Sphere Turning Jig. Being a carbide tip it provides great resistance to aggressive timbers that might otherwise neccesitate very frequent visits to the grinder to sharpen a standed HSS cutter.
WivaMac are producers of high quality, high performance, superbly built and specified woodturning lathes.
We have worked with WivaMac since our very beginings, indeed we were a customer before we were a retailer. We visited Willy's shop in Belgium where we lived at the time and this was our 'pilgrimage' for woodturning equipment.
We have seen the evolution of the machines over the years. Hemsley Sr. continues to turn on his DB6000 to this day, whilst Hemsley Jr. tackles work on a Zebrano - generations of owners, separated by generations of machines, it seems only fitting really.
To this day, WivaMac continue to put quality manufacturing and innovation top of their list and continue to deliver superbly considred lathes to those who settle for only the best.
