The Advanced Kit includes the Pro-Forme Straight, Slightly Bent and Bent Shafts with cutter heads and a Pro-Master Handle. This kit is the ultimate combination for the serious hollow form turner.
The straight shaft is designed to produce the opening and remove the wood down the sides and across the bottom of the vessel. The slight bent head for wood removal from the shoulder and down the sides. The Bent shaft is for cutting under the shoulder of the hollow form. The 20" (508mm) spigot handle has a comfortable cushioned grip for long periods at the lathe. Two handles can be fitted together for extra length if required.

The Woodcut Pro-Forme hollowing system includes a hardened M2 high speed steel cutter that is open on the side to prevent clogging, which is common with other end grain/hollowing tools. The adjustable safety gauge determines the depth of cut and prevents dig-ins. The cutter is both re-sharpenable using a diamond hone and replaceable to ensure a long working life from these tools.
The Woodcut Pro-Forme is designed to hollow both side and end grain on green or dry wood. However, for an optimal hollowing experience, Woodcut Tools recommends the cutter is regularly sharpened and green wood is used. For guidelines on how to sharpen the cutter please refer to the User Manual or below video.
All Pro-Forme tools feature a heavy duty 5/8" diameter shaft that will reach up to 10" over the tool rest.
