Tools and Accessories

Treadle operated wood turning pole lathes require particular tools that are slightly different to tools used on power lathes. 

It would be dangerous to use some of the tools used on a pole lathe on a power lathe, the 2" flat chisel for creating smooth surfaces is a good example.  Also, handles on pole lathe tools are shorter, typically 9" or less, which is fine on a  slow turning pole lathe but high speed power lathes require longer handle for control.

We stock a few of the consumables involved in pole lathe turning including drive cord and shock cord, which can otherwise be surprisingly difficult to source.
