Eli demo continued


This bird ornament was made for demonstrating the use of the skew


Note the convex bevel on this skew chisel. Honed.


This is the "texture tool" made from a concrete drill.

Some of the tool hints that Eli Avisera left me with:
  • Use rounded bevels on skew and beading tool. (As opposed to the more traditional hollow ground bevels.) Eli honed his skew on a buffing wheel with green buff compound. See the video on the previous post.
  • Have very small bevels on gouges. The rest is just "cut away".
  • Use epoxy filler to fill the flute of small gouge to reduce flex.
  • Use a carbide tipped drill to make a texture tool filling the flutes with epoxy.
  • Round stock made into a "combination tool". This is a bit like a gouge with no flute and "negative rake'. Check his webpage for more details.
