Description

Wood turning essentially boils down to 2 types: turning between the centers in which we can make pens, spindles, legs and poles and turning on the headstock where we can do bowls, boxes, burls and platters. Thus, the choice of turning chisels will vary depending on the type you would like to do. 

The Boss greatly appreciates the Hamlet chisel selection manufactured by Henry Taylor® for over 150 years. Made in Sheffield, England, world renowned region for the quality of its steel, this company has learned to combine traditional production techniques with modern tempering processes. Made of M2 grade high speed steel with high wear resistance, these tools offer an excellent value for your money and are recognized around the world

All chisels are provided with a dark color hardwood (ash or beech) handle equipped with a solid bronze ferrule, all reflecting a high level of quality and refinement.

The skew is mainly used for rounding and profiling parts when turning between spindles. It allows to get an excellent surface finish

A word from the boss 

The Boss found winter long... (19-05-14)

The first snow storm hit us on November 10 and the Boss remembers because he had to finish his autumnal outdoor work in the snow. Since then, the snow and cold settled in and lasted until the end of April. Almost 6 months…

Winter has been long for all but, nevertheless, has had a positive effect on the growth of our internet sales. Woodworkers have used this indoor time to properly equip themselves and keep busy. For those who have not yet completed their projects, there is still two months before closing up shop for some well-earned vacation time.

For the others, like the Boss, have your bicycle tuned and get some fresh air.
