  1. Hard to beat this product

    Posted by Frank Coulter on Jan 21st 2024

    Using these beading tools lets me achieve the quality and consistency I would never get otherwise. A great product for sure.

  2. A pleasure to hold and use

    Posted by John Smythe on Jan 11th 2024

    Well made. Nicely finished. Nice to hold in your hand. Came sharp and ready to use.

  3. Makes making Beads much easier.

    Posted by Lee Luebke on Jan 10th 2024

    Nice tools to make beads more consistent. My final project looks great.
    I am going to buy more sizes.

  4. After using for a couple of months now.

    Posted by Greg on Dec 23rd 2023

    Originally I purchased the 1/8 inch and 3/16 inch beading tools to give them a try.
    I was so impressed that later on I went ahead and additionally purchased the diamond (AKA : teardrop) and 1/4 inch beading tools to complement the two others I had already purchased. I watch for the on sale items and pounce on them.
    As with any tool you need to practice a little before using on a finishing project but the learning curve is pretty low. Everything comes sharp when shipped and they are easily sharpened with a (CBN) 180 grit wheel, they are easily "touched" up in about a second or so, ( takes longer to set up the platform than to sharpen). I also use a diamond card in between the grindings and that works well also.
    I have used these on bowls (rims and foot) as well as spindle work (boxes mainly, inside lids, bottoms, and sides). The grain orientation doesn't matter with these tools.
    I can roll beads the conventional way but prefer to use these handy little tools in those very "difficult / highly technical" area's of embellishments. . ( no one will ever suspect anyway )
    Oh yes::: a very important note --- made in the USA!!!! Please support the USA based businesses when possible.
    PS: when considering a size the one I use the most so far is the 1/8 inch.
    I would post a couple of pictures but I don't think I can in this review format.
    One other thing, I made my own handles for these tools as I like using my "hand made" turned handles so for info purposes only, you will need a 25/64 drill bit to accept the tangs into the handles, also drill a relief hole so the epoxy can escape at the bottom of the hole and prevent from creating a vacuum lock when inserting the handles. At least that is what I did.
    Happy turning!!

  5. Beading Tools

    Posted by John Roemer on Oct 9th 2023

    I’m a novice woodturner still trying to get consistent results and these tools have been a definite step forward. The diamond tool is a great tool for cleaning up any type of fine detail work. For consistent beads on a bowl - this is the perfect tool for me.

  6. Best beading tool by far

    Posted by Ken Tower on Jan 27th 2023

    Quality tool, steel, and sharpening. A lifetime tool. A pleasure to use, especially if you have tried any other.

  7. Better than expected

    Posted by Maurice on Oct 22nd 2022

    Easy to make very clean beads in seconds to your end grain!
    I also recommend the diamond tool for clean up and relief cuts between beads and other textures.

  8. Set of beading tools

    Posted by Howard on Sep 20th 2022

    I know the masters frown and say use the tools you have. I am 86 and spent my life always looking for easier ways to do things. The beading tools are faster and the beads look better than the old way. Keep up the good work Jimmie and continue to make my life easier so I can turn forever.

  9. Beading tools

    Posted by Terry on Sep 1st 2022

    I've never tried to bead any of my turnings in the past. I wanted to try the "Basket Weave Illusion ". After watching many YouTube videos this product appeared to be the best one on the market. After using it I was hooked. It's very easy to use. I did not order a handle but I think I'll be getting one soon. Highly recommend.

  10. It's more than the just the tools.

    Posted by Winch in White Rock, BC on Jul 11th 2022

    While the tools are excellent, it's the service and the instructional videos that set them apart from other companies. I just can't rate them higher.
