This is my second Hope tool and am very satisfied with both. The first one I used as a get me out of trouble tool. I wanted to do deeper hollow forms so ordered the heavy duty version and have to admit I am very satisfied. Still amazes me the quality of cut. Black Forest was very quick on their shipment.
I love mine! Black Forest is the only North American source I could find when I finally figured out what Andy Phillip was using that had the great wide base and angled cutter. Stop thinking about it and order one for yourself!
This tool makes quick work on end grain awesome too. Does as it should.
Great tool, simple but very effective. Makes a beautiful smooth cut on Burls and end grain.
Black forest shipped right away. It arrived well packed and in great condition. Thank you for being a valuable supplier.
I was interested in purchasing this Hope hollowing tool, unfortunately they do not ship to the USA. I contacted Hope woodturing and they referred me to Black forest woodturning as one of their distributors
Ive only had the chance to use this on one project since I got it but so far it has exceeded my expectations. I needed a longer hollowing tool to as i wanted to be able to make some deeper vases and hollow forms, this tool will allow me to do that.
Shipping was fast even though it had to go through customs
I will be looking at black forest for any of my future lathe tool needs
