Could you share some of your shapes and sizes you're using on your current project T-Mec?




95% of the detail work on my latest is with these 5.



Left to Right

90º 6mm V, 90º 4mm V, 45º Bent Palm 1/4" V, 4mm Skew & 8mm Skew



One thing to remember when using a V tool, is to make a few passes with it don't try to bite and dig it all out at once. Even with my small palm 1/4" V, I might make 3-4 cuts to get it to the depth I'm looking for.

Hope this helps.

Nice tools T-Mec, and you speak the truth about making multiple Passes to get to the intended depth and width. Hiltiki, the 90 deg v parting tools are usally the least popular as most folks want the narrower cut since multiple passes with the 90 degree tool ends up pretty wide and shallow of a cut.

Keep in mind also when going across the grain or in circular cuts that you Need to go in one direction on one side of the cut and the opposite direction on the other side. For those who ask why? One side will be going With the grain on one side and Against the grain on the other so what I usually do is make the cut in 3 passes; one down the center taking the first third and then one cut in each direction to clean the cut and Maybe a 4th cut to get the bottom right.

V-tools, V-Parting tools and V-liner tools all being the same, they are Complicated tools and probably the Worse sharpened tool in your box. If you look, there are 3 separate parts to the chisel; 2 sides made up of actually 2 straight chisels , connected by a regular small gouge. It's that little gouge part that usually fails to get sharpened correctly and so it will usually be found protruding like a beak hence it's called a birds beak in that situation. It must be sharpened just the same as a normal rounded gouge making sure it connects to both Flat sides evenly. Failure to do this will usually result in that "Beak" being broken off and damaging the chisel.
Hope this helps

Thanks Timac and Benz for all the info. I went to Ventura yesterday to the Woodcraft store and bought this tool.



Nice store, the guys working there were real helpful and I noticed they had a woodworking workshop going on when I was there. I am ready to finish my piece I just have to wait for my cast to come off.

Yeay Hiltiki, I'm Glad you were able to find the tool you needed right in your own back yard. Now you have plenty time to get it sharpened and honed before you use it. When does the cast come off your arm?

greetings Other Ben, Is there a modle/part # on the motor?

Also is this a cabinet saw and is there a part # of the saw itself like a several digit number beginning with a 7? or other #.
Here are some service centers who service the Jet tools who may have the brushes. ( I was too lazy to find your address so I used the 92647 zip code so the miles may be different to you. )

tikimecula, V-tool one of my favorites. Nice Edge on the V-tools. Those things are a bear to keep up. Do you a V-stone to keep them that way?

I'm off to town to buy my first angle grinder today, I've read many of the posts and seems that the makita 4 1/2" is the brand I'll probably get. Is there a certain model that I should look for that maybe is better than another..??
Just carved my first palm log tiki with the chisels but need to be sanded and maybe cut deeper..

If anyone here could posts some digits for me that would be xlnt..

Mahalo's

I use a Tormek.

Best investment I ever made for my chisels.

Beachbumz, look for one that has the option of mounting the handle left/right/center. I usually leave mine mounted at the top-center and that just works for me on my 7.5a Porter-Cable. A trigger style on/off is nice too.

Hello all,
As Im new to Tiki Central I have a couple of questions about tools that carvers use like is there a recommended brand of chisels and electric chainsaws that most of the carvers like over others, and when you need Palm log stock to carve where do you mostly go to get it? Tree Services, dumps or wait until you see a palm getting cut down? Any information would be appreciated Thank you..

TikiMAngo, Mahalo's for the info, I ended up getting a Ryobi 6amp with the 3 mounts and swivel handle. Our home depot here does not have many choices and the Makita they did not have..
I've been using it for about two hours now and it works xlnt, once I build up an arsenal of logs I may get a more powerful one down the road..
Thanks again
