I will be unable to fill any handle orders while I deal with some medical problems.
I hope to be back to work soon. Thanks for your patience.
Peebles Turning Tool Handles
This is a new handle made for the 3/4" Thompson bowl gouge
It is 24" long
Some time ago I began to use the wonderful tools made by Doug Thompson. They have since become my favorite turning tools. But Doug sells these tools unhandled. So I set about making some handles for myself. I have been using them for some time and have gotten good feedback from other turners that have tried them.
They are made from 1" 6061 Aluminum and are covered with Braided Vinyl tubing. The finished diameter is 1-3/8". The tools are bored 2 1/4" deep to securely hold the turning tool. The tool is locked into place with two 8mm set screws.
If you need a handle longer or shorter or to hold a different size gouge, just let me know. I am pretty flexible and will try to make just what you need.
After receiving some excellent feedback from many wood turners, I am now offering my handles in several different sizes. I have also begun to put a colored stripe under the vinyl on each handle.
I now have handles for the new Kilian carbide tools made by Don Thur & Russ Lacombe
16" long - bored for a 3/8" tool $ 35.00 Red stripe
16" long - bored for a 1/2" tool $ 35.00 Blue stripe
16" long - double ended - bored for a 3/8" and 1/2" tool $ 45.00 Green stripe
16" long - double ended - bored for a 1/2" and 5/8" tool $ 45.00 Purple stripe
18" long - bored for a 5/8" tool $ 40.00 Black stripe
24" long - bored for a 3/4" tool $ 60.00 Black & Blue stripe
