Hamlet Skews & Chisels


Versatile tools for spindle turning 


OVAL SKEWS

Oval section skews are easier to use and offer enhanced sensitivity and precise handling, they move easier on the tool rest and are less prone to ‘dig-ins’.  

STANDARD SKEWS

Made from flat rectangular bar, these tools are heavier than oval skews for turning on legs, posts etc.  

ROLLED EDGE SKEWS

A combination of flat skew and rolled edge for steadiness on the tool rest without fear of drag.  

ROUND & SQUARE SKEWS

Round skews were developed specially to allow the blade to move more freely along the tool rest, while the square skew chisel is the traditional choice for planing cuts on cylinders and tapered forms.
