Hand beading, fluting or reeding in hard or soft woods is an easy matter with the high quality beading tool. Using one of the standard cutters or one that you customise yourself, you can put fine detail in furniture quickly and accurately.
The cutters are held against the body with a clamping bar and are adjustable for height and fence offset. The fence has two mounting locations to provide up to a 25mm(1") blade offset and is positional to expose one of three bearing surfaces: flat for straight and convex applications, curved for slightly concave and waved edges, and bullnose for more complex profiles. Both the fence and clamping bar are reversible for left or right-hand use and to handle any grain direction. Cuts on the pull stroke only. The body, clamp bar and fence are precision-machined investment cast steel. The leading and trailing edges of the sole are radiused for smooth travel.
The generous handles are African Rosewood with brass fittings; the adjustable ball knob pivots 90° to allow varying grip. Supplied with a 2.4mm(3/32") radius single-point cutter and five blank cutters. The 16mm(5/8") wide cutters, made from hardened spring steel, are the same used with the Veritas wooden beading tool for compatibility. Since both ends of each cutter can be used, this gives you a dozen possibilities. Standard shapes are also available. Made in Canada.
