  2. From a new turner

    Posted by John Birch on Aug 9th 2019

    I have been turning for less than 3 months. I'm moving up from pen turning, to larger spindle projects. The beading tool is a fantastic tool, a perfect bead with a very small learning curve. I have promised myself that I will continue to learn how to bead with conventional chisels, but I think you would have to be a grand Master to produce the micro beads these tools are capable of. A great teaching video: Doug Schneiter - Basket Illusion 2.0, Beading with D-Way tools.

  3. Works like a charm

    Posted by Jim Barbour on Dec 16th 2017

    I bought the beading tool to assist in getting the ball on the top of chess pawns consistent. Worked like a charm. A larger one would be nice - at least 1/2 inch, but I am not sure there is a market for it since once you get a bead that size it is easy enough to do by hand, but a ball topper, lined up with 7 others in a row, must be precise, not just close. Excellent too.

  4. Works as described

    Posted by Dave Sessions on Aug 5th 2017

    This 3/8'' beading tool makes very clean crisp beads on hardwood. I am very pleased with this tool and would highly recommend it to others.

  5. Beading tools solve the problem

    Posted by Frank S. Virden on Feb 21st 2016

    As someone awkward by nature, I have found my assortment of D-way beading tools a God-send. They cut easily, cleanly, and well. They don't always require the 8" handle, but it is helpful. They eliminate the need for precision with the skew (yea!). They do not come with sharpening instructions, but so far I've been able to touch up the edge by lightly stroking the angled top of the cutter with a diamond hone. Tighter grained woods produce the better results.
