Turners Laser Guide

Universal Mount - Real Time Vessel Thickness Gauge


Lathe Tool Not Included

The Turners Laser Guide enables you to know the location of a point on the cutting edge in real time even while the vessel is spinning and material is being removed. It utilizes a laser pointer to indicate the cutter position on the outside of the vessel while the cutter is actually inside the vessel and is otherwise impossible to accurately locate. The Turners Laser Guide can be attached to either to the turning tool ferrule or shaft ranging from 3/4" to1-1/4" in diameter. With the stainless steel supports you can turn vessels 10" deep by 20" in diameter. The Turners Laser Guide can be set to show the position of a cutter or to show the offset to give you the ability to see the wall thickness of your vessel while it is spinning. The Turners Laser Guide comes complete with a laser pointer that uses one AAA battery which is included.

The Turners Laser Guide Includes:

  • 1 each Laser Pointer
  • 1 each Thickness Gauge
  • 1 each Universal Mounting Base
  • 1 each Upright Support Arm
  • 1 each 90 Bi-directional Bracket
  • 1 each Laser Support Arm
  • 1 each Height Stop Ring
  • 1 each AAA Battery

Tired of cutting through the side of your hollow forms, turned lidded boxes, Christmas ornaments, bowls, plates, platters? Tired of leaving your projects too thick in some areas and too thin in others? Frustrated by having to stop and measure wall thicknesses with calipers that are either too large or inaccurate?

Ron Brown's Best Turners Laser Guide shows you exactly where the tool is cutting in real time as you are making the cut. It is otherwise impossible to see inside a spinning shavings filled vessel. No more constant stopping to measure wall thickness or hollowing too deep and going through the bottom or the side. A laser beam tells you exactly where a point on the cutting edge is located directly beneath the dot on the outside of your project as you go.

I have designed it to mount on the ferrule or handle of any lathe tool normally used for hollowing including bowl gouges, all scrapers like Easy Wood Tools, Mike Hunter tools, John Jordan tools, Sorby hollowing tools, etc. Surprisingly, it also fits most captive hollowing systems on the market today. If you have a system and didn't purchase the laser pointer option, the Turners Laser Guide may be something to consider. The Turners Laser Guide easily and quickly moves from one tool to the next in about a minute including adjustments.

It uses one AAA battery for power so is long lasting and cheap to replace and easy to find anywhere.
