This Wood Turning 1/8" Beading Tool is used with the flute down and that lets it be used in a shear cutting way. Sizes are bead size. Can be used on faceplate or spindle work.
Bead size 1/8"
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.

The best beading tool I have ever bought
Posted by Ron Radliff on Feb 24th 2017
I own a number of Dave's tools and handles and have most recently added the 1/8" beading tool. I already have two other D-Way beading tools and wanted one in between those sizes for making bowls and platters with a basket weave effect. I haven't gotten around to the basket weave projects yet, but I have run a few beads with this new tool. I'm very happy to say (not unexpectedly) that it lives up to the high standards of all the other D-Way tools in my arsenal. It cuts clean crisp beads in both end and side grain and stays sharp for a long long time. I've seen people make rather long handles for these little tools, but honestly, the perform perfectly unhandled as there is almost no leverage working against the user. Having said that, I have added some small 2 inch handles to mine just to make them look nice.
Dave, keep cranking out the fine tools you have been and I'll be back for more (if and when these ever wear out).

I already had your 3/16" and 1/4" beading tools which are great. I decided I needed the 1/8" and am more than pleased with it. I will probably be ordering the 1/16" sometime in the future. I will continue to recommend DWay tools to friends.

I've tried many tools, but this is the BEST for consistent beads I use it for finishing platters with the woven basket technique. Stays sharp but easy to sharpen with a diamond round file. I bought the 1/8" and 3/16" tools and liked them so much I bought one for a friend.

I use these tools right out of the box and they work great. I found some hard round stock and start making beats. Within minutes I was making great beads

I recently purchased these beading tools and the first attempt at using them was excellent. They perform as directed. I called to ask a question and Dave answered and shared his knowledge on sharpening the beading tools in the future.
I will purchase more items from D-Way
