The Woodcut Pro-Forme hollower.
The ultimate uitholset for the wood-turner comes from Woodcut from New Zealand. The head of the Pro-Forme consists of a hook with a particle limiter. This particle limiter is easy and very precise to set throughout the cutting surface. The head is mounted on a rod that is particularly hard and absorbs vibrations very well. The chisel is suitable for really deep hollowing. The head is made from hardened M2 HSS. The hook is open at the back to ensure that the head does not get loaded with tensions. The chisel itself is not very long but the handle can be extended again! And with the Phil Irons tool Gate The handle can then be placed on the chisel support. There is a chisel of about 125 cm! The head can be easily sharpened with a diamond file. The straight chisel (i.e. this) is the chisel that is used most.
The set consists of:
1 handle 2 straight rod with head (for cutting turns in depth) The set is also get in more elaborate versions. There is a set with 3 chisels (one straight, one slightly curved and one gooseneck) and there is another set with a straight chisel and a swan neck. To extend the handle, an extra handle is available.
