Designed by Jimmy Clewes, the JC Mate tools are an extremely versatile, user friendly, value for money, hollowing/cutting tools made for use on smaller woodturning projects.
These tools do not scrape they CUT! And, with a lot of control due to the design and angle of the cutter on each tool. The cutter is drawn into the pocket by a conical-tapered screw, giving a very secure, stable seating preventing the cutter 'fluttering'.
This arrangement allows for a more user-friendly, less aggressive cut which is great for confidence building, making these tools ideal for all users - including beginners. The cutter is set just below the surface of the tool, which helps protect the cutter from wayward and very irritating chips.
