2 in stock

Carefully selected set of 4 turning tools + bradawl + a tin of Bodger’s Billet Wax to get you started on a pole lathe.


Pole Lathe TOOL SET II is a carefully selected set of 4 turning tools specific to the pole lathe.

Also includes a bradawl to get the metal centers aligned a tin of Bodger’s Billet Wax to lubricate the work piece.

Turning tools made in the UK by Ashley Iles.

Each tool has been specifically chosen for a particular function:

Each set includes one of the following: –

  • 1 1/2″ x 7 Straight Carving Gouge – the first tool to round up a billet, also usable for other work such as bowl carving.
  • 2″ Alongee Chisel – ¬†flattens and smooths, can also used with a mallet.
  • 3/4″ skew chisel – creates features such as ‘beads’ on chair legs (not for use with a mallet)
  • 3/8″ spindle gouge – shapes concave features (not for use with a mallet)
  • Bradawl with beech handle – accurately creates the location for the pole lathes metal centers
  • Bodger’s Billet Wax to ensure your turning blank (the billet) turns freely without a sound.

Better price than if each item was bought individually.

Each of the turning tools are slightly hollow ground and will need a quick hone on a flat stone before use.

Made from high carbon steel, with either 230mm (9″) or 150mm (6″) beech handles.

Different to Set I because the 2″ Flat Chisel and the 1 1/4″ Roughing-out Gouge have been replaced with carving tools. This means they can be struck with a wooden mallet therefore more versatile.

Everything made in the UK.
