UK Distributor for Kelton Woodturning Tools

The ToolPost ( is proud to be the UK distributor for Kelton Woodturning Tools, including the innovative McNaughton Centre Saving System. The ToolPost online store features a wide range of these outstanding woodturning tools, including the latest Mark 8 version of what Ray Key called "the woodturning tool of the century".

Kelton Woodturning Tools are highly effective problem-solving tools of the highest order. Engineer and avid woodturner Kel McNaughton, who comes from New Zealand, designed each tool in the range to help with a specific challenge that he encountered in his own woodturning and then went on to work with other world-class turners to create tools which contributed to their development as woodturners. This approach has helped create the woodturner's turning tools of choice; robust and practical tools which The ToolPost is happy to make available to turners in the UK and beyond. The ToolPost offers its customers the very best of the Kelton Woodturning Tools range, from the classic perennials to the newest innovations. Choose from centre savers and hollowers, hook tools and tool handles, undercutters and box cutters; box scrapers, shear scrapers and even calipers all designed with the skill of an engineer and the eye of an accomplished woodturner.

The McNaughton Centre Saving System is arguably Kel McNaughton's finest invention and most turners who have used it would agree with Ray Key's impressive accolade. That's because this ingenious tool allows the turner to core out blanks from the turning timber and use the precious and costly material that would otherwise go to waste. A tool that achieves this is great in theory woodturning can be an expensive business but it has to be easy and efficient to use. This is where the McNaughton Centre Saving System excels: it's a versatile and flexible tool that most experienced woodturners find simple and highly effective.

The Mark 8 version of the McNaughton Centre Saving System now available at The ToolPost boasts new features which enhance the flexibility of the tool. There is a new toolpost/guide yoke assembly with extended functionality and a hollowing gate, as well as two new sizes of gate assembly and four sizes of blades.
