It will allow you to do end grain hollowing faster, deeper, and with more precision than ever before. As a bonus, it's great for finishing cuts on any flat or curved surface, and because it really is an end grain tool, pommels on spindles can be cut so clean it's unbelievable. Use the Termite for the finishing cut and drastically reduce the amount of finish sanding. This will save you both time and money. The ring bits are supplied sharp so the tool can be used straight out of the box.
The Termite is made from high speed steel. It is held with a set screw in a 7½", high strength shank, with tensile strength of over 110 000 PSI. This assembly is mounted in a hardwood handle which measures 15½" long. The total length of this tool is 23" without the cutting tip inserted in the shank.
Because bits are made from high speed steel, and we supply an efficient and simple means of sharpening them, they have a very long life.
The heavy duty steel handle from Oneway is extremely comfortable to hold and use. It is covered in thick plastic for an extremely comfortable feel. Two set screws clamp the tool rigidly in place.
The "Sure-grip" tool handle has a ½" hole at one end, and a ⅝" hole at the opposite end. The handle is 445mm long and its diameter is 32mm.
It helps to absorb vibration during heavy roughing cuts and adds stability for fine finishing cuts.

These ingeniously designed ferrules allow you to use your personal tool handle designs to create your own unique turning tools. They allow double ended gouges to be used in wooden handles. Using the Thread-Lok ferrules also allows the gouge to be removed for easy sharpening.
They come in different sizes: 1/4", 3/8", 1/2".
The Thread-Lok ferrules are machined from a solid piece of aluminum. The ferrules have an internal threaded taper which allows you to screw the ferrule onto the matching taper of a wooden tool handle. The tool handle must have a hole drilled into the center of it to accept the tool and allows you to adjust the length of the "stick out". There are locking screws in the ferrules which are screwed down to lock the tool to the handle. By adjusting the length of the "stick out" you can obtain the right balance for the tool making it easier to use and manipulate.
