New and Hot - January 2017
New from Jimmy Clewes
Mate Undercut Hollowing Tool
Earlier in the year, we told you about Jimmy Clewes' newest tools: the Mate #1 and the Mate #2. Both of these tools used Mike Hunter carbide cup cutters to hollow your wood turnings.
The thing that excited us about these tools was that the design and angle of the cutter is positioned so that the cut is limited to the depth that the cutter is protruding from the main tool shank. This greatly reduces the chance of those huge catches that can be experienced with “self-feeding” scrapers. It also shortens the learning curve so that you can be hollowing comfortably in a short period of time.
Jimmy has now introduced the new tool in this line, the Mate #1 and Mate #2 Undercut Hollowers. These hollowing tools work much like the original tools but have a large sweeping curve which allows you to reach under the rim of your hollow vessels.
The Mate #1 undercut tool comes with a small 6mm cup cutter and the Mate #2 undercut tool comes with 8mm cup cutter. The Mate #2 will basically do everything the Mate #1 does with the exception that with the larger diameter on the cutter, and with a light touch, it will give an amazing finish on the surface.
The tool has an aluminum oxide coating on bar to prevent rust and is made in the United States. The tool is supplied unhandled. You can make your own handle or you could purchase one to fit. Jimmy recommends a handle at least 18 inches in length.
Some of the things that we like about Hunter cutters are:
No grinding of the tool
No lapping of the tool
Each new cutter is sharpened and ready for use
Cutter life far greater than HSS (25 to 30 times)
New cutters, torque screws and wrenches readily available and reasonably priced
The list price on the Mate #1 and Mate #2 undercut tools are: $145.
