Badger Straight Tool
The Badger Straight Tool was designed for the box makers and the turners who like to work on smaller but deep vessels. The 5/8″ shank with a turned taper to hold the # 3 Cutter provides the woodturner the right tool to smooth out those deep vessels and boxes.
The handled Badger Straight tool is provided without a handle, the overall length of the tool is 11”. We recommend a 16” handle with about 3” of the shaft epoxied into the handle.
Badger Full Swan Neck Tool
The Badger Full Swan Neck Tool is 5/8” bar stock with a turned taper to hold the # 3 Cutter. The shaft is about 10 ½” long. This tool is especially useful for turning the undercut areas in boxes and the insides of hollow forms such as a Southwest style hollowed form. It is a variation of the standard Badger Straight Tool, with the only difference being the distinctive swan-neck. The tool comes with the #3 carbide cutter and wrench.
These Hunter Swan Necks are real problem solvers. With practice, you will have very little sanding to do. By the way, the harder and more dense the wood, the better the Hunter tool seems to like it.
No handle is included. We recommend a 16” handle with about 3” of the shaft epoxied into the handle.
