Hi All – I’m thinking about adding a bowl coring system to my tool lineup and would appreciate any feedback my fellow LJ’ers may have to offer. It appears that the ‘big 3’ systems I am seeing and considering are McNaughton, Oneway, and Woodcut (made in New Zealand).

I am turning on a Jet 1642, so I don’t need anything bigger than a system that will handle up to 16”. Have any of you used or owned any of these? Pros and cons will be equally valuable.

Thanks in advance for the always valuable feedback, everyone.

I have used the McNaughton and I own the Oneway. The McNaughton has a longer learning curve, but is more flexible in the size and shape of bowls it can core. The Oneway is a no brainer to use. I prefer the Oneway, but you will find fans of both.
