The Full Size Simple Turner and Hollower is the simplest to use turning and hollowing tool on the market today!

The Simple Turner & Hollower is the tool of choice to be used after a block has been roughed into a cylinder. Both beginners and experts alike appreciate the simplicity with which your project can be quickly turned and hollowed to the desired shape with this tool.

To use the Simple Turner and Hollower just follow these 3 simple steps.

Position the tool rest as close to the work as possible so the carbide cutter is at the lathe center line.
Place the tool on the tool rest with the tool shaft parallel with the floor.
While securely holding the tool slowly move the carbide cutter into the work.

As you turn and hollow your vessel with this tool you’ll quickly discover how simple it is to use. It won’t be long until it’s your favorite tool for doing 90 percent of the shaping work required on the inside and outside of most vessels.

The Full Size Simple Rougher carbide woodturning tool makes roughing much simpler and less physical.

When roughing with the Simple Rougher you’ll notice right away most of the shock created by interrupted cuts during roughing is absorbed in the tool rest instead of your hands and arms. As you begin to move the tool across the turning block you’ll see how fast these carbide tools cut and how much simpler roughing is. It won’t be long until your block is a cylinder and you’ll get your first look at what your turning will become.

In addition to roughing you’ll notice the Simple Rougher is a great tool for shaping the outside radius of a bowl and for turning beads on spindle turnings.

Straight line turning is also simplified on projects such as the wishing well seen in the photos of this tool. Also it’s a great tool for hollowing out the inside of a bowl. If you’re making a box or other vessel that requires square inside corners and a flat bottom this is the tool of choice for that as well.

The Full Size Simple 55 Detailer is a wonderful carbide woodturning tool that provides a much higher level of woodturning creativity.

The design of the Simple 55° Detailer lends itself perfectly to small intricate detail work such as turning beads, cover finials, boxes and other final details on spindle and bowl turnings. The special shape of the diamond cutter allows access to tight places where the cutter on other tools simply can’t be used. Also it is also very useful for making outside chuck tenons and reverse angle inside cuts so bowls can be chucked with dovetail jaws. If you use a 4 jaw chuck to hold your turnings this tool is a must and will be used on every turning.

As you use this tool you will soon see the wonderful small details that can added to your turnings. It will quickly become one of your favorite tools and used regularly.
