  • Great Tools

    I normally don't do this but, I am so pleased that I wanted to tell someone. I just recieved an order from Wood Carvers Supply which included a Flexcut travel kit and three power handle v-tools. None of these tools needed to be sharpened. They all just slice right thru the wood. Even on the end grain. Never bought any tools that didn't require at least some sharpening. The travel kit has just about anything you might need ( ten gouges ). Would be a great set for beginners. Sharp and ready to go. The only draw back is that the handle for the gouge set is plastic. Kind of put me off at first but after I used them, I forgot about it.

    I mailed my order the 14th and got it this evening. Just great service.

    Take care,&&Butch &&&&I know there's a carving somewhere in all that extra wood!

    There is nothing more satisfying than finding a tool(s) that youre comfortable using, and work well.

    Hey Butch, they used to make a wooden handle, you might look around if thats what you want. I also saw that they came out with a sharpening strop that fits their gouge profiles. I think it is a hard rubber.

      It's actually made of wood with leather glued to it. I use it for all my Flexcut blades - it works great.

        Lorax, Thanks for bring up that Flexcut slipstrop. I wondered if that idea worked well and if Santacarvinlady likes it it must must be good. I think I saw my 'santalady' hiding a box set of Flexcut Palm tools. I noticed a few weeks ago my Hummel Flyer with the cirlced pages had moved from my side of the bathroom then came back a day later. That was a big clue.

        Way off the subject but here's a secret for hiding Christmas presents. Put the presents that you do not want found in the emtpy boxes that held the Christmas Decorations. nobody will look in there.

          I can live with the plastic handle. I just expected a nice ash handle like their other tools. I can over look a lot because of the way the tools work.

          Those power handle Japanese made tools are really nice also. I only have a stub of a thumb on my right hand and, I can hold them much better than any other shape. I wish they made them in a better variety of size and shape.

          Take care,&&Butch &&&&I know there's a carving somewhere in all that extra wood!

              Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
              Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

              I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

              I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

              The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

              Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower:
