The step or shoulder of the tool gives an accurate position of the recess required for the base section of the mill. The small V notch on the right hand side allows the other groove to be produced in the top section when it is lined up with the outer face. Made to their usual high performance and quality standards, the tool is 380mm overall with a 164mm blade. Inc.vat Ex.vat Code Recess tool £38.46 £32.05 952594

The first thing you notice about these skew chisel is the tapering blade, being wider at the cutting edge and narrowing towards the ferrule. Made from cryogenic high-speed steel with ash handles, the shape of the skew results in a number of benefits for the turner. The flared tip counterbalancing the handle makes the chisels easy to handle. It is intentionally shorter than normal which puts your hand closer to the cutting area, giving you greater control. The tapered profile means less steel, which results in less weight, giving a far more sensitive response from the bevel when making planing cuts. The rolled edge helps to glide along the tool rest smoothly and rolls over nicely for bead forming.
