AKA Cap'n Eddie Castelin
These cutters are the finest Carbide I can find and are extremely sharp. I've used my 18mm round for up to 100 pens without rotating or changing. They will cut wood, corian and light metals you may inlay.
I also provide one screw with each cutter, in case you lose one in the shavings.
I also provide bars for the cutters. The 3/8" round bar and 3/8" square bar are for the 12mm round cutter and the 1/2" bar can be used for the 18mm round,square and modified for the others. The bars are square or round stock, unfinished, ready to be handled. I provide one screw in each bar. (shavings thing once again)
Notice: I'm not a machine shop, the tools are made to my specs and they work.
All packages are shipped by USPS. Cutter orders and small orders ship first-class, all others go Priority Mail (no guarantee on how many days) . Unless otherwise noted.
I have assembled all the parts you will need to build you own Longworth chuck and a layout you can work from to build your own. You have to provide the faceplate, faceplate fasteners and the plywood. Tools needed are a bandsaw, drill and trim router, along with regular shop tools.
I provide the bolts, nuts, washers, stoppers and the instructions are available via E-mail. To see how it's done, go to You Tube and see the video.
This is a tool package I put together for the guy who has not ventured into carbide tools.

Two R2, Two Square and two 16mm Round.

(there is an $11.00 freight charge on this package to the USA.)Shiping to the USA is added when you click PayPay.

The simplest way to sharpen tools is either a 6" or 8" bench grinder or belt sander (as seen on my video to make your own belt sander). My Blackhawk Sharpening Jig, which is similar to the David Ellsworth jig, at a heck of a lot less cost, is perfect for either the grinder or sander. The jig is $15.00 + actual shipping using a USPS priority box. For this price, you only get the jig, not the base, ends or else. Anything else you add: cutters, bars, etc.) will combine to save on shipping which is added when you click on PayPal.
Make your own self-powered sander or Decorating Genie with a bronze bushing and one 3/8" rare earth magnetic sphere. All you need to add is the wood and a little time. I provide very basic instructions on how to make your own and save $100.00 over the catalog item.Shiping is added when you click PayPay.

This is a version of the Blackhawk sharpening rig I developed for International Shipping. I only make the full size version by special, pre-paid, order by phone (if materials are available) To complete this rig, you need to add two 20" pieces of 19mm (3/4" 0.D. square) tubing or hardwood as shafts, drill a few holes for the supports. I provide two 4" pieces of 3/8" all thread and two coupling nuts for the Ellsworth/Avisera grinds. You also get the two accu-sets shown above.
i will provide complete details for assembly and adjustment.
The price and shipping shown is for shipping within the United States at the Priority flat box rate. For international orders, contact me and I will send you an invoice including shipping to your area. Save money, help me out, and add some cutters to the order.
This is the best full purpose sharpening rig on the market for the money.

I took this off the site a few weeks ago. But you wouldn't leave me alone. some guys think they have better control over the square stock and they can determine the levelness of the cutter a little better. I went back to the shop and found a better way to machine it. I like it even more. 11" Bar and three 12 mm cutters, with 4 screws is $33.00 plus $10.00 shipping.
I'll ship you two (2) square cutters with a 1/2" bar and three (3) machine screws for a total cost of $23.00, plus $10.00 shipping per package. (you save $4.00, I save $2.00 postage and handling)
The bar is machined only for the square cutter. You will have to enlarge the platform for the other cutters. Square bar is not used for round cutter.

I created my version of a rose engine lathe, normally called an ornamental lathe. This can be built by most good welders or fitters. I have built several versions over a long 3 day weekend.
I will sell you a set of drawings, showing every measurement, detail and accessory needed to create some of the most exciting turnings you'll ever see. Included with the drawings is a shopping list of all the items needed and the resource for those parts and pieces. Also, sample templates, many of which can be purchased from other ornamental lathe manufacturers in the US.
This is not a project for the squeemish, this unit weighs about 120# when complete, but is capable of work that disappeared from our world over 150 years ago. You will be able to "run with the big dogs" of ornamental turning when you finish this project.
Your payment of $20.00 will be donated to Freedom Pens through The Bayou Woodturners.

About a dozen years ago I was doing segmented work and started working with a layout template because I couldn't get the sizes right and was wasting wood. I had a version of MiniCad for work as a store designer and decided to create my own layout template.
I started with eight points and then increased to 16. I did another in the 3 range and did a 3, 6, 12, 24 layout.(shown) Then I did a 5, 10, 20 layout and so on. (flip side, not shown)
I have incorporated all of these templates into one master, one side is the 6 layout (6/12/24) and the other covers 4 (4/8/16)& 5 (5/10/20) layout. It is laminated in heavy duty plastic so it's ready for the shop. You can mark on it with dry erase markers or grease pencil.
I can sell it to you, shipped to the USA for only $12.00. I have to add $4 for increased cost in lamination and shipping. This ships via Media mail and can take 9-14 work days to get to you. If you order by check, be sure to add the shipping cost or I'll be doing this for free. Please add the $4 shipping costs, I can't sell and ship for the cost of lamination and printing.
