HOLLOW-PRO™ ROCKET™  Standard size tools are professional, fast and efficient hollowing tools for making hollow vessels up to about 7" high x about 7" diameter. These 8" tools have 3/8" shafts to allow hollowing through very small, restricted openings. The tools use replaceable #1 size carbide cutters and are designed to fit into any large handle with a 3/8" or 1/2" opening. (Tip: place the screws from these handles on the side or top of the tools, so the bottom will slide smoothly on the tool rest)

NEW! HOLLOW-PRO™  LARGE ROCKET TOOLS
Blast the wood out of medium/large size hollow vessels!

Large Rocket Tools

HOLLOW-PRO™ LARGE ROCKET tools are now available for making hollow vessels up  to about 10" high  and about  10"  in diameter. These 11" tools have 1/2" shafts that facilitate hollowing through small restricted openings.  LARGE ROCKET tools use #1 carbide cutters and are designed to fit into any large handle with a 1/2" opening. (Tip: place the screws from these handles on the side or top of the tools, so the bottom will slide smoothly on the tool rest.)


The round shafts of these tools can be rotated slightly to make clean "shear" cuts and the bent tool is also very useful for undercutting the openings on larger hollow vessels.
Set of one straight and one bent tool includes replaceable Hunter #1 carbide cutters for clean cuts and durability, and a Torx wrench for rotating and replacing the cutters as needed.

Notes On Use of Hollow-Pro™ Rocket™ Tools
STRAIGHT TOOLS:
The Hollow-Pro™  3/8" and 1/2" ROCKET straight tools are very versatile tools that can be used to remove wood quickly and easily from hollow vessels and open bowls. They also work very well for hollowing out boxes.

BENT TOOLS:
The Hollow-Pro™  3/8" and 1/2" ROCKET™  bent tools were designed to hollow vessels up to about 7"  (for the 3/8" tool)  and up to about 10" in diameter (for the 1/2" tool), but they are also intended to be used on larger pieces. By using the smaller tools to undercut the first portion of larger vessels, the tool rest is closer, resulting in a cleaner cut and greater control.
