Re: Coring tools...a good investment?

>If you core green wood either the McNaughton or the Oneway works great. I have had both. However, if you want to core dry wood you are in for a lot of work and a lot of wear on your lathe bearings and your body. I had to sharpen every 4 or 5 inches and even then it was hard going. Spraying water on the kerf helps some but you can imagine the mess!
Also, with dry wood a lot of heat in generated and can cause the wood to crack.
