Simple 90° Detailer™ Carbide Tipped Lathe Tool The modern alternative to conventional spindle scrapers and detailing tools The introduction of carbide tipped wood turning tools has greatly simplified wood turning. Spindle and detail turning now begins as soon as your tool arrives. Gone forever is the long process of mastering spindle and bowl gouge detailing techniques and tool presentation. Another thing that won't be missed is the need to master many sharpening techniques before you can even begin to turn, not to mention the expense of all that sharpening equipment. Now with Simple Wood Turning Toolsit’s all turning and no sharpening so you can start turning immediately. To use the Simple 90° Detailer just follow these 3 simple steps: 1. Position the tool rest as close to the work as possible so the carbide cutter is at the lathe center line. 2. Place the tool on the tool rest with the tool shaft parallel with the floor. 3. While securely holding the tool keep the flat bottom in constant contact with the tool rest and slowly plunge the carbide cutter into the work. In addition to detail work the sharp point of the Simple 90° Detailer makes it an amazing tool for hollowing out bowls turned from really hard wood, or any other wood for that matter. Simply pierce the point into a vessel you're hollowing, then move the tool back and forth and you'll see the inside of the vessel rapidly turned to chips. One note here: It's best to not pierce the tool more then ½" into the vessel before moving sideways. This tool is also great for cutting perfectly square tenons and inside corners.
