Articulated Hollowing systems
Sep 2nd, 2017 at 3:30pm
 
I'm doing some research before jumping in and buying or building an articulated hollowing system.  To those who have one or have used one, is there any real difference between the articulated arm lengths?  I've seen them with arm lengths like 4/8/10 inches or 8/12/14 inches etc.  It would seem that the depth comes from the boring/cutting rod on the end of the articulating part and that the longer the arms the more chance for vibration.

Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

Here are the things I know

1. The deeper you go the thicker the bar needs to be due to vibration.

I have seen great works using the Lyle Jamieson's hollower and the Elbo which Tim Yoder sells and I like them both. I can not recommend which tho.  I think both do a good job.
