Re: Crown Revolutionary Hollower

I picked one up in a HUGE estate along with 8 or 10 other (deep) hollowing tools.
I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but the brass piece used to control how aggressively the cutter works has a lot of potential.
I'm thinking of making a couple of similar pieces for the cupped cutters on my Rolly Munro tools.
On this tool, how deep you plan to hollow should be key in your decision making. I like the idea of the auxiliary handle, but keep in mind, a big catch could hurt your hand or wrist.
If nothing else, it is a basically well designed tool with a lot of options in cutters and a good amount of ability to articulate.
Over all, it's also not a bad price. It would not have been my first choice, but I think it's a good choice (depending on how deep you intend to hollow).
