I use this multi edged tool.

To cut back in the detail lost in the 40 year old molds
of the spears I'm making to line the Chinese ovens
at the MAI-KAI.

Ben,
you may be
Vicious & Malicious
But I'm
Repetitious


I only have 16 more to do
Will

I Absolutely LOVE the Unorthodox use of everyday tools to perform off the wall tasks. Excellent one today Will. Definitely Mr Repetitious too with those spear points, cool stuff soon to be HOT. How do these guys tie in with those Chinese Ovens? And, Are they building more?

Well,
Here's the story.
Back in the day, the Mai-Kai served only Chinese food & had only Chinese cooks. In 68 they bumped that room out or in-closed it & used the 6ft spears as window dressing. They have 4 windows with 8 spears on each rack. One is inside & the spears look like brand new. 3 more are outside & there is only rusty wire sticking out of pipe ends left.
Well to make a long story short. I found the molds & we are on a roll now

The oven

OLD SPEARS

NEW SPEARS

So how you like my new cool tool ?
21 inches of cold coarse steel.
some where between the chainsaw & sand paper
it would not be unusual to see me use this dude
for rapid wood removal.
they call it a 14 in.1/2 round wood rasp.
Check out the serrated edge.

I was always told - its not the size of your tool, but how you use it. Your not "compensating" are you?

I am looking for a bent V-shaped parting tool, with 90-degree angle. I have been looking around in stores, flexcut, ebay and can't find it. Here is a picture, it is # 2 second from the left. Any info would be great.

www.rockler.com

Any woodcarving supplier should have access to it. It will not be cheap!

Here are the best "V" Parting tools I have found. They come honed and ready to use Very sharp

http://www.woodcraft.com/family.aspx?FamilyID=1329

I have been using Pfeil's for about 2 years now and love them. They hold there edge well.

Don't buy Henry Taylor "V" parting tools you wont be happy with them. The rest of the Taylor line is very good, I have had very bad luck with there "V' tools.

Depending on what angle you are looking for? 60. 45, 90 ect....

Pfiel uses odd numbers for there angles

#12 = 60
#13 = 90
#14 = 55
#15 = 45
#16 = 35

Hope this helps.

Heh, someone else has the "Art of Maori Carving" book! Very timely posts as I'm after a V-chisel myself right now, and you are probably the master of said chisel round these parts T-Mec. Those prices are the best I've seen for Pfeil chisels yet.
nterestingly we are only using the straight Vs in our carving class right now, but I can definitely see the benefits of the curve when working around all those tight spirals. Could you share some of your shapes and sizes you're using on your current project T-Mec?

thanks for all the info. Uhm T-Mec, I am having a hard time finding the 90 degree tool. I put #13 and it didn't work, and since I don't really know what I am doing except for the fact that I need this particular tool to finish my piece, would you happen to know? where the 90 degree angle one is? No sweep but long bent V-parting tool. They have #12 but can't find #13.

I noticed the book also. It was one of the first carving books I bought, when Octane posted it here a few years ago.

There is a newer version of that same book here:

http://www.booktopia.com.au/te-toi-whakairo-the-art-of-maori-carving/prod9780790003665.html#

Master? Me? Not even close.

I will snap some pics of the chisels I'm using on my latest for you.
