Was in the need for a hollowing tool that pivots and didn’t like the price on line or in the woodworking stores..so I figured I’d make my own. Bought the cutter from Rockler for 12 bucks, 1/2 inch steel bar from Ace hardware for 7 bucks, used a piece of scrap hardwood to turn a handle,tapped the end,epoxied it in and now I have a sturdy hollowing tool. total cost 19 bucks. Put some black stamp pad replenisher ink and polyurethane on the handle and called it a day. Let me know what you guys think. Cuts like butter. Nothing better than making your own tools.
Almost as good as woodworking itself !
