Hunter Tools ()

A friend stopped by today and I let him try the Hunter tools, the large and small Hercules and the Viceroy and Clewes mate. Now he wants to buy the Hercules!

I use the Hercules on nearly every bowl or platter face turning and on many end grain turnings, especially larger diameter. I use them in the bevel rubbing mode just like a bowl or spindle gouge.

I do grind off the heel of the tool and polish it to avoid burnishing the wood.
