These Wood Turning Beading Tools are used with the flute down and that lets them to be used in a shear cutting way. Sizes are bead size. Can be used on faceplate or spindle work.
Set of all 2 Beading Tools.
Beading Tool Choices are 1/16", 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8" & Dia Tool
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.
If you would like to replace any of the beading tools with Dia. Tool just add a note to your order.

I am learning to use the beading tools and really like them. With the exception of the smallest one I ordered I am able to make pretty good beads already, The other one will take some time, but is coming along.

I was first introduced to the D-Way beading tools at a demonstration by Harvey Meyer. I had tried the Sorby beading tools and found that I could turn better beads with a spindle gouge. After Harvey's demonstration I knew I had to have these beading tools so I bought the 1/8 and 3/16 tools. They make perfect beads every time, the same size every time. So my next purchase was the 1/4 and the 3/8. Now I can make beads consistently the same size with ease. I would recommend these tools to everyone. The service from Dave was great, I received the tools two days after I ordered them.

I have struggled for years with cutting small uniform beads and just about gave up. I ordered the 3/32" and 3/16" tools to try and now I'm sold! It really is quick and easy to lay out and complete a pattern of precise, professional looking beads with these tools. I found that by gently scribing your bead pattern first then going back to finish them produces more uniform results than completing each bead individually. Try it and I'm confident you will be impressed too. Thanks, Dave and look for my order soon to get the other sizes.

The 1/8" and 3/16" beading tools are absolutely top notch! I was hoping they would be at least a little better than the cheaper tools I had, but with the upside-down approach, they are truly cutters rather than scrapers. Right out of the package I was able to make beautiful, smooth, perfectly uniform beads for a woven basket technique. They fit perfectly in handles I already had, so I appreciate the price. Well done. I'll be buying more D-Way Tools.

I bought the 1/8" and 1/16" beading tools. Like all of Dave's tools I have bought so far they exceed expectations in every way. They are top quality and so sweet to use. I could never make these size beads look as good as these tools do! Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to these beading tools and enjoy making beautiful beads! The teardrop tool is a great partner to these.

I've tried some of the other beading tools including Sorby. These out perform all the rest. No tear out and leave an extremely smooth finish. And can be sharpened many times. Sorby cannot be sharpened as many times as the D- Way beading tools.

I not very good rolling small beads with a gouge or skew. These tools make me look like an expert.

Other than a skew or spindle gouge I've never tried beading. These tools made it so easy I'm adding beads to everything, even beaded every inch of a bowl. Love these! Will probably buy the entire set when I get the $.

I bought the 3/8 beading Tool and the Diamond Tool and I used both of them to embellish a bread box. The result was perfect. The box is made of "Zirbe (pinus cembra)", an Austrian pine-like tree. And although the wood of that tree is rather soft it was quite suitable for turning and nearly needed no sanding.
In German: Ich habe das 3/8-Zoll Beading-Werkzeug und das tropfenförmige Werkzeug direkt von Dave aus den USA gekauft und zur Strukturierung der Aussenseite einer großen Brotdose benutzt. Das Ergebnis ist super!
Die Brotbox ist aus Zirbe, also ein weiches und langfaseriges Holz. Trotzdem musste ich kaum nachschleifen und hatte auch keine Ausrisse.
