New and Hot - April 2016

New from Jimmy Clewes

Mate #1 and Mate #2 Hollowing Tools

Jimmy Clewes has just released a set of woodturning tools that he has designed. They are manufactured by Mike Hunter, using his renowned high-quality cup cutters.

The new tools are called the New Mate #1 and Mate #2. They are extremely versatile, user friendly, lots of value for the money and work both as a hollowing tool and a cutting tool.

Since these tools use the Hunter cutters, they do not scrape they CUT!  And, they provide for lots of tool control due to the design and angle of the cutter on each tool. The cutter is set just below the surface of the tool, which helps protect the cutter from inadvertent and very irritating chips.

The Mate #1 has a small 6mm cup cutter (micro crystalline carbide cutters sharpened with diamonds.) It is set into a machined pocket at approximately 22 degrees.

The Mate #2 has an 8mm cup cutter (micro crystalline carbide sharpened with diamonds) set into a machined pocket at approximately 32 degrees.  The Mate #2 will basically do everything the Mate #1 does and the only exception is the larger diameter on the cutter.

I asked Jimmy which one he would recommend if you could only buy one and he recommended the Mate #1. He said that the Mate #2 might be a touch better when doing larger pieces.

The tools are supplied unhandled which means that you will need to make your own handle. It is recommended that you make the handle longer rather than shorter and at least 18 inches in length.

Both the Mate #1 and Mate #2 will cut wet wood, dry wood, long grain or end grain with ease. 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.

The tools are manufactured in the United States.

The list price for each tool is $145. You can get both for the discounted price of $270.
