Gamma Zinken Termite Hollowing Tools
This revolutionary line of hollowing tools has been created in order to satisfy the needs of execution rapidity and the quality of the work of modern woodturners.
These tools are conceived to be used from the centre outwards. The 40°÷45° cutting angle is the best to obtain an excellent finishing. It is possible to make
continuous straight movements through the workpiece or rotative movements to shape your object.
The termite hollowing tool is composed by a shaft that can be of Ø 14 or Ø 17 mm and a soft and comfortable anti-slip silicone coated handle, into which a termiteholder
shank is fitted. The shaft is made of steel and available in two models: straight and jointed; the second one is ideal for undercutting. The shank slides within the
handle in order to be extended or shortened.
The dimension of the shaft defines the depth of the excavation: we recommend the Ø 14 shaft for deep vases of 140mm having a protrusion over the tool-rest of
about 200 mm; the Ø 17 is recommended instead for 250mm vases, but if the vase has a large enough hole so that the tool holder can enter a little bit, nothing forbids
to make an excavation even deeper. The 14 mm shaft version is also available with a fixed wooden handle.
