A while back I posted these tenon turning spanners/open end wrench (I suppose that's what we could call them) for simple use when turning consistent and fast tenons of the same size on a wood lathe.
The spanners are sharpened so I can actually cut the tenon to size - very useful for my various turnings.
Shown are (from the bottom) 7mm, 13mm, 16mm and 19mm spanners.
They are ground so there is a 'top' edge and a 'bottom' edge.
They don't replace my skew or any other wood turning chisels but speed up my production of magic wands, drop spindles (for spinning wool) and so on.
Basically for anything needing a small tenon so it fits into my chuck or whatever.
To use, firstly. BRING THE WOOD TO ROUND (close to your finished size) USING 'NORMAL' MEANS.. Do NOT try this on square stock - it is way too dangerous.
Next, rest the tool on your tool rest as close to your work as practical so the smaller 'finger' faces upwards and slightly above centre.
Gently move into the wood maintaining a firm grip on the tool at all times and VOILA!
Don't try to take off too much at one time.
As is always the case, please make sure you wear appropriate safety attire.
Be aware these tools need frequent sharpening - they are not designed to cut wood normally
This is ideal for me for production runs and is easy to do - I have arthritic hands and like the feel of using this tool rather than always using my skew or one of my carbides.
Hope this is useful to somebody.
