Use these great innovative new ferrules to make your own turning tools!
These ingeniously designed ferrules allow you to use your personal tool handle designs to create your own unique turning tools.
This product as it allows double ended gouges to be used in wooden handles.
Using the Thread-Lok ferrules allows the gouge to be removed for easy sharpening with the vari-grind attachment. Some tools can be very difficult to grind when they are in the handle as they are very long and the handle gets in the way. Using the Thread-Lok system will make sharpening your tools easier and a more enjoyable experience.
How do they work?
The ferrules have an internal threaded taper which allows you to screw the ferrule onto the matching taper of a wooden tool handle. The tool handle must have a hole drilled into the center of it to accept the tool and allows you to adjust the length of the "stick out".
There are locking screws in the ferrules which are screwed down to lock the tool to the handle. By adjusting the length of the "stick out" you can obtain the right balance for the tool making it easier to use and manipulate.
If the ferrule ever loosens on the handle, simply twist it further onto the taper and it will be securely locked in place again!
