Few tools in the shop can save you time and money like the Kelton® Jumbo McNaughton Center Saver System. Instead of peeling away 90% of a bowl blank into useless shavings, you can create several bowls from a single blank. In fact, a 16" x 6" thick bowl blank can yield four or more bowls depending on your experience and skill level. Bowl coring reduces the cost per bowl and the cored bowls take less time to turn and finish. Bowl coring is great for the environment as it maximizes yield and reduces waste.
Unlike other fixed position bowl coring systems that cut predetermined shapes, the McNaughton Center Saver System lets you vary the shape, thickness, and diameter of cored bowls via the newly redesigned articulating tool support post. An added feature is the detachable hollowing gate that allows you to use the tool support post for hollowing turning using free-hand hollowing tools. Simply adjust the crossbar to fit the tool you want to use and you'll have a rock-solid tool support that makes hollowing far easier by counteracting the leverage created when cutting. Lightly honing the cutter insert with a diamond stone helps maximize cutter life.
Designed for coring bowls 10" in diameter and smaller, Mini McNaughton Center Saver Blades are shorter and more narrow so they remove less wood and don't require as much effort as the larger system blades.
