  • 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.

    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.

          Lorax,
          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.

              Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
              And on each cloud touching the body ?
              I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

              Thanks

              I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

              What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

              Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!
