I am looking to buy a Tenon Cutter or sometimes called Hollow Auger or
Spoke Pointer. They were used for putting points on spokes and they are also
used to make rustic furniture out of tree branches. I started making canes
for charity for something to do for the winter and would like to buy one at
a reasonable price. If you have one or know where I could find one could you
please E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at email@example.com
Thank you very much,
Two different tools.
The spoke pointer is like a huge pencil sharpener, and puts a point on square
or round stock.
The hollow auger cuts a tenon of constant diameter, not a taper. Some are
fixed size, some adjustable.
A wheelwright used the spoke pointer first. The taper it produced gave a place
for the hollow auger to start.
There are a couple of antique tool people you might try:
Hope this helps,
Thanks everyone for the great help. I have luckily found both a spoke
pointer and a hollow auger from a guy on the internet that sells antique
tools. I thank you all for the help and hope you all have a great day..
gonna keep checking on this newsgroup as it looks very interesting . I
am starting to learn carving and this might be a great place to learn
I found a tenon cutter on Ebay for $8 or so a couple years
back, so they're available there occasionally. If you need
one NOW, try www.leevalley.com who makes entire sets brand
