I was thinking of buying this tool from Axminster. I have not yet tried hollowing but would like to start. Any help or advice would be useful. Thanks.  john kinch

I have this tool but I only use it to scrape the inside of the hollow form.  I prefer something that i can articulate to get a better cutting edge.  I am only starting to do hollow forms myself so i am sure there are many out there who can help you.  Good luck with your hollowing.

hi John
     if you are after a hollowing tool have a look at the one Baz has made >here it may help you but in the meantime i use the ashle illes hollow cup tool and find it a verry good tool to use.

Hi John
I too have this tool and find it quite good for removing wood in a bowl or dish but, it can only do so much due to its straight bar. The straight bar does stop you getting right under a lip and you need to maneuver the tool a lot and have quite a largish opening to get under a lip. Baz's tool would be very useful for that action.
My turnings done with this tool is found in this album ► ► Here ◄◄
The tool is also a great scraper as Garfield mentions, You can get super fine shavings from a good sharp cutter and by moving the blade around, you can get into corners very well.
Hope this helps.

Hi, all thanks for your advice, I think I will buy this tool as a starter it sounds to be ok. Once I get into deeper hollowing or more complex sections a different type of tool will have to be purchased.

Ihave the Sorbey RS200 kt  it has an assortment of tips  it is more versatile for hollowing, it is of course more expensive, I have also made longer shafts to carry the cutters

 I see in axminsters catalogue the Crown Cryo hollowing tool which is similar  and cheaper with an assortment of tips George
