Product Information:

The first choice for turning medium sized bowls.

Character limit per line: 30

Tired of tough bowl blanks that quickly dull your edges? Have you hesitated to start on a burl because you know what the dirt in it will do to your tools? The Hunter Hollowing Tools, with their unique carbide cutters, are the solution to your problems. They will cut just about everything that you throw at them. Easy to control and smooth cutting. Great for beginners and welcome additions for advanced turners. When the tip dulls, just loosen and rotate slightly to a new razor sharp section. The tip is easy to replace when it eventually wears out. No grinding or lapping of the cutter is needed. High quality carbide tip provides an edge life 25-30 times longer than similar tools. Aluminum oxide finish on the tool holders prevents rust. Strong metal shanks minimize vibration and chatter. Tip wrench and instructions included. #4 Hunter Tool is the first choice for turning medium sized bowls. Removes wood very quickly and will produce outstanding finishes prior to sanding. 1/2” diameter cutter is mounted on a 6-1/2" long, 1/2" diameter shank; 24" overall tool length. Use the same tool for rough turning and finishing turning.

    Comments about Hunter #4 Hunter Carbide Hollowing Tool :

    Most folks mistakenly try to use this tool flat, that will guarantee a bad catch. Start with the cutter vertical and gently touching the work, then slowly twist the handle clockwise until a chip develops and then proceed with the cut. Avoid angling the cutter much more than 45 degrees as the tool will get pretty aggressive on you. Start your cut in the center of the workpiece and cut outwards towards the rim/sidewall. Works well on cross grain but is especially good on end grain because you are cutting, not scraping. It can also be used as a scraper but the finish, off the tool, will suffer. I much prefer the Hunter tools over the Easy Wood tools because of the cut finis makes for less sanding.

    Comments about Hunter #4 Hunter Carbide Hollowing Tool :

    This cutter works great, it cuts clean so there is very little sanding to do, the longer handle makes controlling it easier. my only complaint is that it is really aggresive, it will take you by supprise if you are not ready for it.

    You might as well use a screwdriver. Grabs from any angle. A dull roughing gouge works better than this device.
