I've seen those Sean -- I may have to get one of those also!Yes, I did buy one awhile ago and it works quite well for what it does. I can see it being quite useful in the making of
chairs but really cannot remember why I did buy it?
Anyhow, I did buy one of these and quite like it because it allows me to install their tip kits to some of my sticks.
When I get a chance I will update and post pics!Look forward to hearing how well it works. I'm putting a handle on my wife's cane and the interior dimension of the brass handle is a hair under 3/4" and the stick is at 7/8" and slightly oval. I'm going to use my tenon cutter to take it to 3/4" and then use my cabinet rasp to take it down to the final diameter. I tried it out on a test piece and it should work quite well. The shoulders of the tenon are sloped, and I'll use the rasp to try and square them off a bit. I'll be curious to see how well I can make the transition work from the body of the stick to the shoulders. As a square wood worker (boards rather than turning or round sticks) I'm used to square tenon shoulders.I'm still not sure how it will work.
I'll be curious to hear how you use it and how it works for you.
I havn't gotten any further yet -- but I've seen it done and look pretty nice!That's why I bought one... just remembered. Also, for putting handles onto canes. Haven't used it yet for that purpose.
In the past when putting on the cane handle I would just carve a round dowel onto the end of my stick to fit the handle
using one of my Mora's.
