    [Woodturning] small beads turning tool

    To pursue on micro turning, last time I showed a tool holder made for turning tiny coves, here is now a tool for making micro beads

    It is made from a carbide scraper blade, it is very tough an holds its sharpening very well, and it can be used even in brass.
    I have 1 mm bead shape at one end,


    and 2mm at the other end.


    It is used with this tool holder




    Here you can see the shape and how I sharpen it with a diamond conical bit on the Dremel.

    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Good Idea Chris
    Should hold up even under rough conditions, but that small of a beading tool I can't see it encountering rough conditions

    Good Job
