chisels by wood river

Recommended Posts

I picked up these chisels at Wood craft a while ago and found they are pretty good right out of the box for micro wood turning

Hi Dave,


I bought the same set and had them sharpened by Woodcraft. They are razor sharp. The price was right also. I had read mixed reviews on them but I am happy with mine.

Same here. I made a small tool rest on my mini lathe and these chisels work great for small jobs.

The fellow who sold them to me caustioned me about the 1/8 gouge. 'It is easy to break', was his comment. He obviously works with the big ones for turning bowls, etc.


The tool rest was made of wood with a sheet metal section for the chisels to rest on. This is a prototype and I want to make another out of solid aluminum.


Notice also that I moved the control panels from the front to the back. That allowed me install a dial indicator for the lateral travel (not shown here). I also made a cam operated clamp for the tail stock. You can see the steel rod in the back that activates the cam and clamp.


Jim thanks for your help about inserting pictures within the text of these posts.

I also have gotten these about a year and a half ago for my wood lathe, now that I got the Sherline not sure I will be using them again, but I know I will not get rid of them. Also got the set from Micro Mark, which I don't care for at all. It all comes down to you get what you pay for LOL.


Joe :D


Go MSW :) :)

Joe, I use these chisels with my Sherline all the time.  Just use the proper tool rest.  It takes a little practice but well worth the effort.
