Bowl Coring Systems
Jun 8th, 2009 at 10:15am
 
Has anyone made their own bowl coring system?

I found a youtube video of a dutch guy who made his own.  It's pretty slick.

His system is pretty slick. The down side to it is that you are very limited to which types of cores you can take. Only from a  center mount (no side to side movement), and a specific radius. Great if you only take one type of core. Could you make your own. Yes. Would it be easy? No. A complicated tool.

I liked the "basket" support piece that allows the cored piece to be contained till the lathe is shut down.  That support piece would also help minimize vibration.  The center pivot doesn't bother me that much.  It does present the problem of having to have a complete cutter/mount for each diameter you would want to core.  But it gets away from the computations necessary for a side-to-side system.

The biggest issue would be access to a good fab shop.  It would be difficult to get the precision curved pieces in a home shop.  You couldn't see the cutter, but I assume a brazed carbide tip of some sort.

If you have the facilities to produce it, I like it...

I don't know much about coring, but I did watch Boxxmake use his system and compared to what I saw on this video and his system, this is a much simpler tool. I think I'd like this one better, but I've never used a coring tool so I can't say alot except this one seem easier to use.

Hey Wizz,I made the McNaughton look hard to use,but believe me,I have seen to many folks use it with no problem ,but in my case it's the idiot using it.  bang head bang head

Ok...not too sure why this would be moved from the tool section where I was asking about making the tool shown in the video, but what do I know..I don't own the forum.

Anyway...Rolling the steel would be the easy part of the fabrication.  Nothing a decent set of slip rolls couldn't handle.  I was thinking would it just be easy to roll the steel and then use a replacement cutter from the oneway system?

I think that even though this applies to tools it was moved here because of it being a video.Wonder what happened to the thumb? OUCH
