By Curtis Turner
Round Rock, Texas

I recently made a purchase that I had put off for way too long. I finally decided to try the Oneway's Sure Grip Hosaluk Tool Handle along with several Mastercut gouges.

I have been testing this set up for about a month now. I wanted to share with you my observations.

NEW Easy Wood Tools 1/8

NEW Easy Wood Tools 1/8" Easy Parting Tool

Easy Wood Tools has built some nice innovations into their new 1/8" parting tool. At the cutting end the tool body slims down to 3/32" and holds an 1/8" cutting tip. The narrow cutter helps you save material and part in very tight spaces. You can part up to 4" deep with only a 1/8" part width. The heavy tool body virtually eliminates chatter and vibration in most cuts. The solid carbide tip will stay sharp a long, long time. When it finally gets dull, it's easy to replace.
