The Turners Select Drawbar Collet Chuck is an inexpensive quality chucking system for turning small projects like spinning tops, birdhouse finials and similar items where accuracy and tool accessibility are a priority. Many professional pen turners prefer using a drawbar collet chuck for holding pen mandrels as it eliminates the risk of off-center pen barrels and project tubes so you get the very best results possible.
To prevent injury, the theaded rod must be cut to length before powering on your lathe. Simply install the drawbar system on your lathe while it is unplugged, then cut the rod with a hacksaw so no more than 2" of rod extends past the collet chuck handwheel. Remove any sharp burrs with a file.
Available exclusively from Craft Supplies USA.

Everything a woodturner needs to know about using and implementing the exciting new technology of replaceable carbide cutting tips is included in this guide. Woodturning tools have taken a quantum leap since the recent introduction of these tips that have greatly simplified the task of turning in dry stock. Carbide-tipped woodturning tools are safer, faster, easier, and more efficient than traditional tools that require grinding the end of a piece of fluted steel to one of dozens of subjective profiles.
The technology of the carbide cutters is fully explained, as are the various shafts and the function of the handle designs, providing insight into how and why these cutters act as they do, and why they are shaped as they are. Removing the intimidating aspects of turning, the guide explains the elimination of sharpening, addresses the issues of chatter and fatigue, and advises on maintenance, techniques, and usage. A number of projects are included--such as a candlestick, spinning tops, and a basic bowl--that can be completed right away by novice turners, rather than waiting for years to gain enough experience to do the same job with traditional tools. *128 pages *Soft Cover
