Jimmy Clews-Mega Mate
Sorry, this item is out of stock
New ! Mega mate
I have been asked by many turners to produce a Tool like the Mate #1 and #2 but one which has the stability and capability to hollow deeper vessels.
The NEW MEGA MATE #2 is the same basic design but a much larger tool than the Mate #1 or #2 with a lot more integrity !
The bar is 5/8 square section , with a turned round 5/8 tang. ( Look at the Diagram and info below )Beautifully machined with a chemical black glossy finish to the bar. The tool will fit directly into a 5/8 Quick release unit or into any of the many available handles with set screws with a 5/8 hole.It features an 8mm cutter allowing rapid removal of wood with great control.
The bar including tang is 11 ½ inches long allowing the turner to hollow deeper.
As with the Mate# 1 and #2 the cutter this tool can be used to hollow end grain , long grain , wet or dry wood and will resist “self- feeding “ unlike traditional scrapers.
Ideal for hollowing deeper Bowls!
