Designed to aid the woodturner who wishes to embellish work by carving, this clever and versatile clamp is designed to be mounted into the lathe's banjo and the woodturning chuck, complete with workpiece, is mounted on the spindle thread of the clamp. In this way, the workpiece is securely held but can be moved into virtually any position to facilitate carving on the surface of the bowl or other mounted workpiece. This is a very robust and flexible clamp and is based on the highly-respected carving clamps from the same manufacturer. A separate mounting block can be purchased, enabling the assembly to be mounted on the bench instead of - or in addition to - mounting in the banjo of the lathe. The support stem of the clamp is designed to fit into a 1" toolpost hole in the banjo and the spindle thread (for mounting the chuck) is 1 inch x 8 tpi.
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.
