Hunter tool modifications

john lucas
>I've been playing with the #1 hunter tool cutter. I'm making some tools to hollow christmas ornaments and probably other small things like boxes and hollow vessels. I'll try to post some photos tomorrow. I'm playing with the shapes of the bar to hold them and with the angle of the cutter. The first one worked excellent for hollowing something you won't see inside. I feel like I needed to increase the angle of the tool to make the surface smoother. These cutters cut so clean when used at the proper angle and proper feed rate that it would be really great if I can get find a tool bar shape that will allow you to reach all parts of the vessel with just one tool and still get that smooth cut.

Just wanted to wet your appetite.
