  1. As expected

    Posted by Byrle Brunton on Dec 25th 2020

    If you read these reviews, it is obvious that I own a number of D-Way tools. There is one reason for that: consistent excellent quality, workmanship, and customer support. These tools will change the way you turn and open many design doors. They've made turning safer and easier for me.

  2. D-Way 1/2" Bead Tool

    Posted by Jiunn-Kai Wang on Dec 13th 2020

    I bought this tool in order to obtain perfect bead. The tool was easy to use and gradually formed the perfect bead. Since it has 1/2" wide blade section. The groove is slightly less than 1/2". So the bead's diameter is slightly less than 1/2".

    The sharpening is easy. I use a coarse grit (250) then fine grit (600) diamond stone to smooth the upper angular surface. then use a round diamond sharpening bar to de-burr the groove.

  3. Best Beading Tool On Market

    Posted by Bill Baxley on Jan 17th 2019

    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.
