 Product Description

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.

Note: Light touch is all that is needed; longer handles interfere with the bed of lathe.

  1. Best Beading Tool Ever

    Posted by Terry Nance on Sep 9th 2019

    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.

  2. Best beading tool out there

    Posted by Eric Johnson on Sep 26th 2018

    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.

  6. Tool solves symmetrical bead placement and creation

    Posted by Tinker from South Mississippi on Feb 15th 2017

    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.
