First of all, Hello to everyone. I'm new to the forum and new to turning. I live in Oregon, USA and I hope to learn a lot here and be able to participate. For this first post I have a question, does anyone use the One Way Termite Hollowing Tool? If so, how do you like it and would it be a good tool for a beginning turner to make bowls? I guess that's actually three questions :rolleyes:
Thanks!
Chris

Hi Chris, Firstly welcome aboard. :U


This site has a review of the Termite
http://www.newwoodworker.com/reviews/termitervu.html

This site has a huge number of articles for the beginner and the serious wood turner alike
http://www.magnoliawoodturners.org/Links.html


Here you find Lyn Mangiameli's reviews of various wood turning tools, especially hollowers
http://www.fholder.com/Woodturning/lyn.html

The bottom line is that the Termite like allot of hollowers from reputable companies. They all do a good job and really gets down to personal preference and the $$$ we want to spend.


hope this is useful
