Axminster Evolution woodturning smock - 2017

Axminster’s latest Evolution Series woodturning smock is perfect for professional and passionate amateur turners.

Paying heed to the experience of tutors in the Axminster Skill Centre and listening to feedback from customers, Axminster has incorporated details, insights and features direct from the lathe. This smock could be a woodturner’s ultimate protective garment.

This is a comfortable and practical smock for wearing all day long while working at your lathe. The 35/65 cotton/polyester twill is hardwearing, neither too heavy nor too light and easily washable. The smock has a full-length nylon YKK front zip making it easy to put on and take off. A flap, held in place with hook and loop tabs, covers the zip and keeps out the dust.

At the collar, a zip cover prevents the zip slider from scratching your neck. The high collar has a hook and loop tab at the side to adjust the fit, keeping shavings out without adding extra material bulk under your chin. The back of the collar is made of soft stretch knitted fabric, adding to your comfort and allowing complete freedom of movement. A great deal of thought went into the collar design to ensure it does not compromise safety when wearing a powered respirator.

The short sleeves mean there is no loose material near the moving workpiece. Tabs on the sleeves allow you to adjust the fit on the upper arm. There is a small breast pocket to keep your pencil handy and two large pockets at the rear where they won’t fill with shavings and sawdust, and are useful for tools or snacks.
