The Kel McNaughton Centre-Saver System, acclaimed by woodturners throughout the world, is a very fine tool that contributes much to the world of woodturning.
The heart of the Centre-Saver System is the Tool Post which gives complete freedom for the turner to choose the angle of presentation allowing for an infinite variety of shapes. The same post will also accept three different sizes of blades - miniature, standard and large.
The System can be used with either left or right handed blades which means that turning can be either inboard or outboard as well as allowing for stock to be held at the open end of the faceplate. (Safest and best way to remove centres).
The standard set includes a 5 pin turret, 3 curved blades plus one straight blade of 1/4" x 1" section and a KH3 handle. The five pin gate supplied accepts Small, Standard and Large centre saving blades and the integrated hollowing gate can be used with Kelton 5/16", 1/2" and 5/8" hollowers.
- Quick to assemble.
- Super Long-life blades.
- Saves centres up to 350mm in diameter.
- Work can be secured with tail stock for added security.
- Can be used for straight parting.
