Please select the desired tool length (steel length) and cutting edge width!
Please note that the hand-forged tools of the brand "Neuhammer" are delivered without a handle.
Compared to industrially manufactured mass products, it should be noted that dimensions and shape show slight fluctuations, which are due to the manufacturing technology of the artisanal forging. In addition, the shape and sharpness of the cutting edge are not yet ready for use with new tools. All tools must first be sharpened. This enables the shape of the cutting edge to be corrected according to individual requirements (influencing factors such as type of wood, workpiece shape and the like).
Application : The German tube has the same cross-section as a transverse wood tube, but is provided with an additional bevel on the inside of the U-shape. The outer bevel is usually shorter than the inner bevel. This tool shape is used for turning hollow shapes in end grain. One also speaks of turning "overhead". It is also suitable for finishing walls in straight, deep hollow bodies. (Cans, cans)
Bevel: The bevel on the inside of the Neuhammer tools is already roughly ground. The outer bevel must be corrected. It is to be adapted to the profile to be machined (size of the cavity) and serves as a guide bevel.
Working method: When working with the German tube, as with all other turning work, always use the wood fiber, never turn against it. In the special case of hollow turning, this means always working from the center (axis of rotation) outwards. The outer bevel of the tube is pressed against the face of the workpiece and the cutting edge is guided outwards from the axis of rotation (approx. Towards 2:00 o'clock). It is advisable to drill a hole or at least a grain size in the workpiece center in order to obtain a better starting point.
Application examples: for concave shapes in end grain such as egg cups, furniture knobs, spinning plates, can lids
