Mini Hollowers from Easy Wood Tools Makes Hollowing Small Projects Safer, Easier

Mini Hollowers

LEXINGTON, Ky., 2019 —Easy Wood Tools (EWT), the leading manufacturer of replaceable carbide-tipped turning tools, announces its new Mini Hollowers designed specifically for small hollow forms. At 15.25 inches, each new Mini Hollower has a straight, slightly angled (45 degrees), or L-hook (90 degrees) configuration on a square-shaped bar with easy-to-grip American maple handle.

“These new hollowers are another first-to-market for Easy Wood Tools,” said Chris Caliendo, president, Easy Wood Tools. “We are always finding ways to make turning safer while stretching the boundaries of what turners can make quickly and easily, and we’ve done it again.”

Hollow forms can be tricky for turners because they can’t see inside the form that they’re turning; it’s especially difficult when their medium is a four-inch piece of wood and their tools are full sized. With EWT’s mini-sized hollowing tools, turning small items like ornaments, mini vases, and other hollow shapes is safer and easier.

The mini hollowers come equipped with Ci5 negative rake cutters for better control with a less aggressive cut; the negative rake minimizes the severity of unexpected catches that can occur when creating a hollow form. Their square-shaped tool design provides a shorter learning curve, too; the resultant parallel turning geometry means fewer catches and kick-backs overall.

Now available online and through EWT retailers, each Mini Hollower is $99.99 and is sold separately or in a three-piece, felt-lined kit in a clear acrylic slide box for $285.99.
