What's the difference between full size and mid size woodturning tools?

Full Size Tools:

  • Overall Tool Length: 12"
  • Handle Tang: 2.5" length x .50" diameter
  • Material: 1/2" square solid steel, beautifully nickel plated
  • The SSCF tool features a 5/8" round shaft, not a square shaft.
  • RECOMMENDED: for turnings over 6" in diameter

Mid Size Tools:

  • Handle Tang: 2" length x .375" diameter
  • Material: 3/8" square solid steel, beautifully nickel plated
  • The MSSCF tool features a 3/8" round shaft, not a square shaft.
  • RECOMMENDED: for turnings less than 6" in diameter where full size tools can be a bit clumsy
