Designed by Richard Raffan Designed by Richard Raffan
Richard began woodturning in 1970 and can be described as one of the world's foremost authorities on this craft. Drawing on his vast experience Richard has designed a range of tools whish are produced from heavy section materials, with particular attention given to the curved cutting edge shapes. The tools are safe to use because the thick material does not flex thus reducing the chance of catches. The curved cutting edges are less prone to catches and much enhance the versatility and controlled performance of the tools.

Parting Tools and Beading Tools Designed by the Experts "" Parting Tool developed by Kip Christensen
This narrow parting tool is ideal for working with the hard dense woods used in boxes and tops. It produces a shearing cut and a flat smooth surface.

Beading Tools re-introduced by Dale Nish
These traditional tools overcome the problems of forming precise and consistent beads on small boxes, bases etc. The top of the tool only should be honed to preserve the shape.

Designed by Ray Key HSS Turning Tools and Scrapers by Ray Key

Used mainly for making boxes, from hard dense end grain material. Internal hollowing from the centre is made easy with short stubby 60/65° angle, this allows for a strong vibration free pivot cutting action, as the bevel can be rubbed for much of the time. For outside shaping the long side grind is used with the bevel rubbing , the tool is pulled along the material. Quality of surface obtained is the equivelent of a skew chisel, but is much better than a skew on duifficult woods.
""
This tool is also used for refined shaping of the outside of small bowls. Used correctly the bevel rubs with a slicing cut action and leaves a very clean tool finish, no scraping is required. end grain hollowing on softer woods and larger work is best done with the 1/2" gouge. The end / side cutting scraper is made from a 3/4" square end scraper. This is used to true up gouge ripples in the base of flat bottomed boxes and to true up the side walls. The 1/2" skew is one that has a much longer angle than normal, it is used more like a sheer scraper is used for the truing up of gouge ripples in the base of soft curved boxes, goblets, egg cups etc. The modified straight across the grind make it much easier to remove the nipple or pimple often foound in such items when the rounded end ones are used.

A. 'Key Parting Tool HSS - HS107
Section 1/2" X 3/32"
Used with the widest width of the tool down on the rest, the tapered section gives tool clearance and stops binding.

B & C. 'Key' French Curve Scrapers HSS - HS108 & HS109
Section 1 1/2" X 3/8"
for larger work 1" X 1/4" for smaller work. The shape of the tool makes it easy to remove any ripples and undulations from the bowl gouge. Blending of curves is easy and outward side pressure on the walls of bowls is virtually eliminated when the tool is used correctly. (Side pressure can cause wood to flex and give a catch or dig in and shatter.)

D. 'Key' Round Cutaway Scraper HSS - HS110
Section 3/4" X 1/4"
For inside work with small openings the cut away section allows easier manipulation under any shoulder and minimises the chance of fouling the tool on the far side of the opening.

E. 'Key' Shear Scraper HSS - HS111
Section 11/2" X 5/16"
The stubby, heavy section and rounded edges make for easy use and damps down vibration. Used at an angle of 30° to 45 ° out of the horizontal, gives a fine finish on difficult timbers when used in this way, for bowls and flat work.
