This Wood Turning 1/2" Beading Tool is used with the flute down and that lets it to be used in a shear cutting way. Sizes are bead size. Can be used on faceplate or spindle work.
I recommed the 8" handle for all of my beading tools and Diamond tool, light touch is all that is needed, longer handles interfere with the bed of lathe.

I needed a larger beading tool for a special project. I have all of D-Way's beading tools and this new 1/2 inch worked perfect. I have used other beading tools but just ended up with tear out. These tools really work. Harvey Meyer introduced me to D-Way and they are the best beading tool on the market.
