I use 2 different tools; Ones that I make that are carbide scrapers and D-Way Tools.
There are but 2 kinds of people. Ones that I have sung the praises of D-Way tools and the ones I have not met yet. D-Way tools are simply the best!

I've really grown fond of these knobs. They certainly aren't a necessity, but they do make the turning experience more enjoyable and after all, isn't that why we do this activity? I've found also that I am much more likely to touch up my tools when they need it rather than "push" them a little bit farther.

Bought one to try but I was skeptical... How secure could it be with just one point holding he tool in the handle, and that knob has got to get in the way. Stuck it on a 12" handle with 1/2" bowl gouge and did a production run last week. I sharpen frequently on a wolverine set-up and remove the tool from the handle. It held tight, never got in the way, and made tool removal for sharpening much easier. Additionally, the tool doesnt roll around on work table. It's a well made accessory and recommend trying one. I'm now a believer and will be ordering one for all my D-Way handles. Great Idea Dave.

I love the feel and size of these knobs. They are just right to grab to tighten or loosen, and the knurling makes it a sure grip. They are so convenient to make a quick tool change, especially using them as the description says, just one, and they still hold tight, with no chatter, and i haven't had one come loose, that I didn't loosen. All in all, I love them, and i will be buying more. I also have the 12" aluminum handle, which has the most comfortable grip I've ever found on a tool handle, and as my budget allows, i will be purchasing a couple more in the near future.

These knobs are so simple and work extremely well.
Bought them to retrofit all my aluminum handles that had grub screws.
Makes sharpening my tools quick and easy.
Just like all Dave's other tools these are top rate

The quick change knobs are great! When I go to the school for wood turning class, I bring just a couple of handles and a bunch of lathe tools. It's lighter to carry and I can sharpen at home and just change to a new tool and keep going when the edge gets dull. The lighter weight and faster change are terrific.
