Universal Pen Mandrel Kit

The Universal Pen Mandrel Kit by Planet Manufacturing is an innovative design that allows the majority of pen kits available to be turned on a single mandrel.

Each kit is supplied complete with 3 parallel spacers for turning pens with an outside barrel diameter of 7mm and 4 cones for barrel diameters of 7.5 - 12mm. The cones have a 90 degree included angle which will not mouth the barrel or cause any other damage in normal use.

Veritas Tapered Snug Plug Cutter & Flush Cutting Saw - PACKAGE DEAL

Package deal comprises the Veritas 1/2" Tapered Snug Plug Cutter and the Veritas Flush Cutting Saw.

Veritas 1/2" Tapered Snug Plug Cutter Sometimes when plugging holes, no matter how carefully drilled, the holes finish up slightly oversize for the plug, especially in soft woods. These cabinet maker's snug plug cutters overcome this by cutting a slightly tapered plug. The first 3mm of the plug is the diameter stated whilst the remaining length is then flared out at an angle of 3°. Just tap the plug into place until you meet resistance then cut off the excess. Also, unlike regular plug cutters which have two cutting flutes, these plug cutters have four, giving a much cleaner cut and a smooth-sided plug which fits perfectly every time and is practically invisible, for best results use in a drill press or power drill stand.

Veritas Flush Cutting Saw Traditionally used for the rapid trimming of plugs and dowels flush with a surface, these flush cutting saws can be used where you want to cut off a projection without damaging the surrounding or adjoining face. The Japanese tooth pattern blade cuts aggressively (on the pull stroke), but does not mark the surface that it is cutting next to. The thin blade is flexible and can be pressed flush to any surface, yet is rigid enough for good control. 290mm long with 120mm of blade, single edge 26tpi. These work like a charm.

Key Features

Veritas Tapered Snug Plug Cutter

•     Snug plug cutters cut a slightly tapered plug
•     1/2" Cutter

If you are working from your home / workshop or even out and about, such as camping or fishing this multi-blade knife is ideal for keeping yourself busy carving or whittling that newly found timber.

Jet JWL-1221VS Woodturning Lathe & Floor Stand - PACKAGE DEAL

Jet JWL-1221VS Woodturning Lathe

The Jet JWL1221VS is different to every other Jet lathe that has been before. The whole lathe has been designed to make the woodturning experience better by focusing on control. As with all other JET lathes, this one is made from cast iron, but the bed width is much wider than usually found on machines of this size. This gives great support to the tool rest holder, which also stays exactly where you clamp it even under the heaviest loads. The spindle is supported by heavy duty bearings and is quietly driven by a 745W DC motor via a 6 groove belt system. All of the motor controls are very conveniently located together; the speed control, spindle speed digital readout and forward/reverse selector all come naturally to hand. The tall, rigid tailstock has an ACME barrel lead screw with 64mm of travel, the barrel and headstock spindles have 2MT tapers. Camlocks on both tailstock and toolrest holder allow easy positioning just where you want them. To help keep things tidy there are tool and cable storage fittings on the bed, keeping those essential tools within easy reach. Although this is a great bench top lathe, with the optional extension bed and matching lathe and bed stands you can expand this lathe into a floor standing machine with over 1,000mm between centres. The lathe stand has a built-in storage tray plus wide feet for stability, whilst the bed extension is an exact match to the lathe bed, giving a completely integrated look to whole machine. This is without doubt a very fine small lathe.

Stand for Jet JWL-1221VS Woodturning Lathe

Jet JWL-1015VS Woodturning Lathe

This new variable speed Jet lathe is an excellent introduction to woodturning. It is a lovely, smooth running lathe and has the power and precision to turn any number of projects, ranging from pens, bottle stoppers, drawers, cupboard knobs, platters, boxes and bowls. Powered by a 375W variable speed DC motor, it drives a strong spindle through 3 belt pulley ratios, giving a good range of speeds for any project. The electronic variable speed control system has sensitive feedback which controls the torque applied to the spindle, keeping the spindle running at the speed set even when a heavy load is applied to it. The speed within each ratio is varied by a simple control knob located on the right hand side of the bed. Speed ratio changing is easy with convenient doors giving full access to the belt and pulleys; a grab handle is used to raise the motor and to re-tension the belt. The bed is precision ground cast iron with much wider than average bedways. This gives great support to the tool rest and tailstock, both fitted with cam locking. The spindle has the common M33 x 3.5mm thread and has a 2MT internal taper. There are also 24 integrated indexing positions making it easy to cut fluting and veining. The tailstock also has a 2MT internal bore, the spindle having a 50mm travel and is self ejecting. The Jet JWL-1015VS is again a perfect choice for the novice woodturner or the advanced turner looking for a small, fully featured machine for the workshop. Supplied with 80mm faceplate, 2MT drive and tailstock centres and knock-out bar, N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories used.

Hand Held Drive Punch 1

We all know how damage is caused to our drive centres, after finding the centre of the blank you take the drive centre and using a hammer or mallet tap it into the centre marking on the blank, the first couple of times no problem then without realising it, the end of the drive centre starts to become out of shape and damaged

This new product introduced by Planet will solve this problem, this unique tool works by positioning it on to the marked centre of the blank and then simply tapping it into the blank using the mallet or hammer, leaving the groves making it easier so that the blank will then fit onto the drive centres on the lathe. Why damage your more expensive drive centres anymore
