The ToolPost's Pick of Simple but Essential Woodturning Accessories

An effective workshop needs far more than just a workbench, a woodturning lathe and some basic tools. It is often the accessories which really help a turner to work efficiently and productively, so here is the pick of the best from the folks at The ToolPost (

The Long Hole Boring Kit opens up the interesting arena of long hole boring to the woodturner in one affordable and comprehensive kit enabling the production of popular items such as table lamps that don't have an ugly lead trailing from the lampholder. Containing a fixed hollow cup centre, a counterbore and a standard shell auger, this kit is great value for money.  For even more versatility and longer term use, The ToolPost also supplies hollow live centres to match.

Morse Taper Adapter Sleeves, as the name suggests, allow you to easily adapt the Morse Taper in your
woodturning lathe and as such are essential accessories to maximise the utilization of your spindle and tailstock accessories, avoiding the need to re-equip the workshop when you change lathes.

Spindle taps provide secure mounting which is precisely concentric with the spindle of the
woodturning lathe. The Beall spindle taps available from The ToolPost stop you having to struggle to mount a work on the lathe simply create your own chucking device and you'll always have a perfect fit.

And last, but by no means least, the Magnetic "Bitsa" Tray is so basic and yet you'll wonder how you ever got away without one. A stainless steel magnetised tray which provides secure storage and easy access to all your essential
woodturning bits and pieces right where you need them, and without them rolling away from the workplace. It's genius in its simplicity! The great value prices mean you can treat yourself to all three formats and sizes.
