  1. Easy Wood Tool Contest!

    I found this on Facebook. If you have a FaceBook account check it out- https://www.facebook.com/EasyWoodTools/photos/a.305274012822515.95517.296127457070504/1968972016452698/?type=3&theater
  2. Tool Handle

    I bought an Easy Hollower by Easy Wood Tools some months ago. I bought it without the handle with the idea of making something special for it. I figured I should make the tool removable since there are other hollowing tools available for future purchase possibilities. I had a piece of 1.5" diameter steel rod out in the metal shop so I cut a 4" piece off and took it to the metal lathe and drilled a .5" hole 3" deep for the tool tang. I stuck the end with the hole in the chuck and turned 3" of the shaft down to .875" (7/8) diameter to be inserted into the wood handle. I also drilled and tapped a hole for a .25" set screw. Here is the tool with the insert attached. Time for the handle. Took an 2"X2"X22" piece of Purple Heart and chucked it into the lathe. I drilled a .875" hole in the end for the insert and turned the end to fit a brass bushing on it for support and installed it. Turned the rest of the handle for a total handle length of 18" and with the tool mounted the overall length is 27.5". Next up is a project putting it to use. That will be soon and in another thread.
  3. Will this work?
  4. Opinion Poll... please

    Easy Wood Tools currently uses Hickory for our PRO size Lathe Chisels. I personally don't love this choice.... pic of this tool is attached. I would rather use either cherry or walnut, just for the beauty factor. We use maple for all other tools (+stain), but I think the cherry or walnut would look nicer than the hickory for this product. So the poll question is: Which domestic hardwood do you think would be best for a full sized (20" handle)? 1) Hickory 2) Cherry 3) Walnut 4) Maple 5) Other (please specify) Thanks! Jim
  5. New guy checking in....

    Just wanted to say hi to my fellow turners.... I am the marketing manager for Easy Wood Tools in Lexington, KY. If there are any questions regarding EWT or our products, I'll be glad to help the best I can. I've been in the WWing industry for 30+ years, I don't just build and sell tools, I am a woodworker too. I make really good sawdust & chips! BTW... also the proud father of an Army veteran (Infantry) served in Iraq and Germany. So there you go, glad to be here.
  6. EZ wood tools sold again....

    I was a little worried about EZ Wood tools after Jorgenson bought them and then they (Jorgy) went under. But I guess the firm has been sold again.

  11. Easy Wood Tools

    I've figured out that God has a sense of humor. I turn only out of necessity since I lost an eye about 13 years ago. Recently, I won a raffle here on site and won ..........wait for it......... A set of Easy Wood Tools. So, all you turners, if you're looking for a set of Mid Size hollowing tools, I have them for sale. Its a three piece set of hollowing tools 6601, 6602 and 6603. Send me a message here on site and we'll talk $.
  12. First, let me say a big thanks to all the powers that be that made this program possible, without which, there would be no program OK so now, lets get to it. Above all, the tools are simple to use. If you are sharpening challenged, these tools are for you, If you like to be able to just turn the blade to a sharp part after the previous area is dull, then these are likely right up your alley. If however, you have been turning for 20+ years and have learned ways of sharpening tools, then these turning tools may not be what you need. all of these turning tools are great. Because of the fact that they use carbide cutters, they stay sharp for a good long time, providing many hours of turning bliss. Whether you get the midi tools or the full size tools, you really can't go wrong. The one drawback on these tools, is that no matter what size you get, you should only use them to their recommended depth of 3 to 4 inches. Going beyond that, is asking for catches, and possibly damaged/broken tools. The one thing I would like to see in the near future, is a tool that can go deeper, without having to worry about a problem of breakage. Perhaps that is in the works, I don't know, but it would be great to see. This is where most advertisers would say "BUT WAIT", there is also the Easy Wood Chuck, that has been added to the arsenal. This tool although I have not used it, I have seen it work and it is nothing short of amazing, due to the fact that you can easily switch out jaws without having to remove screws or reinstall screws,which makes using this chuck a breeze. Hopefully I can get one of these soon, we'll see. I think first though I will try getting the hollowing tools, I was hoping to get a chance to review those, but it didn't work that way, so stay tuned, because as soon as I can get a chance to do so, I will be trying them out. OK It's looking like I got a bit off track LOL (I do that a lot). Whether you are turning finials, boxes, bottle stoppers, pens, or bowls, this entire system is the best I have seen yet for the price. Hey, if you make pens or other very small items and are looking for something to give it a try without getting into the price of the full size tools, try the Easy Start tools, they are just as good as their bigger brothers, except that you CANNOT work them as deep as the bigger tools. 1 1/2-2" Is all they are really safe for. I have the Easy Start Detailer, I bought for Christmas a few years back, and it does great for detailing small things!

  15. Oh boy where to start? I wish I could keep them all! All the tools in the kit were very comfortable to use and they fit wonderfully in my hand. the finish on the handles was so flawless I was afraid to set them down and risk scratching them. The easy finisher, I found the easy finisher to be great for cutting coves and curves. I was challenged when I tried to use it for smoothing a cylindrical turning, I usually wound up creating a spiral pattern in the piece that took a bit of sanding to smooth out. If I had taken the time to watch the DVD and practice I probably would've been more successful using it. it was very easy to use and cut cleanly. I found this tool to be very useful and feel it is a good fit for my turning skill level and projects The Easy Detailer, I wish the detailer had a sharp point instead of the rounded tip. I think the sharp point would make it easier to cut fine details and sharp grooves. I used it to cut a slight cove in the end grain of a bottle stopper and it worked for this task, however I do think I could've made the same cut with the finisher tool. To be fair and give it other chances I used it to put some other details in turnings. While it worked for this and cut nice and clean I currently do not see a need to add it to my tool arsenal. To sum up my cutting tool reviews 2 out of 3 isn't bad. The 3rd was a good tool however it wasn't one I currently have a use for. Tomorrow or the next day I'll be reviewing my favorite, the Chuck!
  16. Oh boy where to start? I wish I could keep them all! All the tools in the kit were very comfortable to use and they fit wonderfully in my hand. the finish on the handles was so flawless I was afraid to set them down and risk scratching them The easy rougher, I used this to rough out a few rolling pins from 2.5" square hard maple, walnut , and cherry. I found that the tool chipped the hard corners when first starting the cut but soon smoothed out when the pin got closer to round. My preference for the initial rounding/roughing out step returned to my Sorby roughing gouge. When I used the Easy Wood rougher on stock that had the corners sawn off this wasn't as much of an issue. Where I liked the easy rougher was truing up the turning and tapering the ends of my pins. I did get a little tear-out on the walnut but a quick sanding (less than 30 seconds ) took care of that. I found this tool to be very useful and feel it is a good fit for my turning skill level and projects. reviews of the other tools will be coming over the next few days John
