 this shop New Manufacturer of the BCT Tool Product Line is proud to announce that it is now the manufacturer and supplier of the respected BCT line of woodturning tools. The recent retirement of the original manufacturer and inventor of this fine range of tools, Frank Steele, meant that the BCT line could have gone out of production forever more. To avoid depriving the woodturning community of these excellent tools, The ToolPost (with the express agreement and close involvement of Frank Steele) has not only taken over as sole supplier of the BCT Tool line, but has revised and rationalised the tools, resulting in increased versatility and flexibility for the user.

The BCT range of tools has been hugely admired by woodturners for many years, often being regarded as essential basics that a turner wouldn't do without. The folks at ToolPost have been just such admirers and therefore it was with great excitement (and the utmost respect) that they approached the task of refining and simplifying the tools. BCT tools were originally developed to help aspirant woodturners learn woodturning skills, safely.  The recently-introduced HolloMate forms the foundation of the new line-up with the Versatool and Supercut having been retained in update form but perhaps the over-riding area of improvement is the unification of the entire range, whilst retaining each individual tool's defined market niche. Turners can now interchange the main components of the new series of BCT tools, allowing one tool to be converted into another. This means, of course, that the whole range can now be purchased at a fraction of the cost; turners no longer need to build up the complete line by purchasing each individual tool.

The ToolPost is the leading supplier of tools and equipment for woodturning, woodcarving and fine woodworking. The company's commercial success combined with its grass-roots know-how and hands-on experience, make it the perfect choice as developers of the BCT product line, sharing with the turning community the many benefits of these fine tools and making it possible to own the entire range of BCT products at a far lower cost.
