Tool Checklist


Most of you will know well that if you’re looking to remove spigots or recesses on a turned bowl it can be a tricky process, with the risk of leaving marks on your perfectly turned bowl. The four Axminster Wood Jaw Plates allow you to do this without the constraints of size or potential damage.

By providing a base for mounting custom wood jaws, they allow you to hold turned wood of any size, especially large items such as bowls, securely and with less distortion under tightening.
