This Wood Turning 1/16" 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.
-- Recommend the 8" handles with 1/2" receiver, 1/2" to 3/8" bushings, & quick change knobs for all of our Beading tools and Diamond tool.
Note: Light touch is all that is needed; longer handles interfere with the bed of lathe.
Price does not include handles, which are sold separately. Want to add more handles? Click here >>>

Very easy to use, beads come out clean and crisp. Adds a detail to your turning that everyone will ask you "how did you do that".

These are by far the best tools for beading. They are easy to use and leave a smooth surface that is ready for finish.
I also find that the tools stay sharper than the other beading tools I have tried.

I have four D-Way tools,, and they are all excellent. Almost every other tool maker uses M2 steel. D-Way uses M42 steel, and M42 steel is far, far, better.

The beading tool makes beads really easy. The machine of the tool is very good. I purchased the complete set of them.
Beading is fun with this tool.
