This Wood Turning 1/4" Beading Tool is used with the flute down which 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.

I purchased two beading tools at SWAT this year. A 1/16 and a 1/8 tool. After using these I had to buy the 1/4 inch beading tool. With these any body can make perfect beads right from the start. Excellent tools.

The flute is polished smooth and delivers a flawless bead. I bought this for one purpose and that was to make the brim on my snowmen hats. It is fantastic.

The 1/4" beading tool allows me to place a bead with precision, in addition it allows for creation of beads that are rounded equally on both sides. Tool facilitates bead creation much easier and faster.

I bought this beading tool from D way tools and right out of the box it was razor sharp and ready to go. In no time at all I was making great beads. It is well made and easy to sharpening.
