Both beginners and experts alike will appriecate how simple it is to complete hollow forms with this tool. Its all turning and no sharpening so your time is spent turning not sharpening. Gone forever is the long learning curve where precise angles and special tool presentation techniques must be mastered. Also gone is the need to become an expert tool sharpener.When the carbide cutter on this tool finally loses its edge simply loosen the screw and rotate the cutter. This will expose a new cutting surface and you're off to turning once again. Position the tool rest so the curved portion of the tool will not contact the tool rest when the tool is inside the vessel. In other words the curved protion of the tool should be hanging over the tool rest. This positions the tool rest farther away from the vessel then would be normal with other tools. The reason for this is to prevent rotational, or twisting force on the tool as would be the case if the curved portion is in contact with the tool rest. Notice the center of the cutter is inline with the center of the straight portion of the tool.
If the tool is positioned properly on the tool rest it will work just like straight shaft tools with no more twisting felt in the handle then when cutting with the side of a cutter on a straight shaft tool. However, since the tool is always extended over the tool rest we recommend only light cuts be made with this tool.Also this tool is designed for the final hollowing only and should not be used for the entire hollowing process. Straight shaft tool should be used for as much of the hollowing process as possible because the tool rest can be positioned close to the work with those tools. Adjust the tool rest height so the cutter is at the lathe vertical center line. Place the tool on the tool rest with the tool shaft parallel with the floor. While securely holding the tool handle carefully move the tool into the vessel and carefully hollow out the portion that can not be reached with your straight shaft tools.
