Make Your Own Woodturning Tool-Small Hardware Kit in Black Oxide


This hardware kit includes everything you’ll need to make your own micro woodturning tool except the handle. This kit is for the micro size tool that uses 1/8" square bits. Simply make the handle you want to complete your tool.

The tool body is 4140 chrome-moly steel measuring 6 1/2" long from the handle with a 2" long tang. The main body is a 3/8" hex and the tang is 5/16 diameter. It has a black-oxide protective coating and the cutting bit is cobalt steel. This will cut like a laser. You can watch several videos of my tool being used on YouTube. Just go to and search for SegmentedTurner.

The kit is shown in the photos. That tiny dot above the Allen wrench in the parts photo is the magnet you can use to hold the wrench in the handle as shown in some of my completed tools. It's up to you if you want to do this.

This kit includes the micro tool body, Allen screws, Allen wrench, cutting bit, magnet for holding the wrench in the handle (if you chose to do so), high strength epoxy and mixing stick and some instructions and guidelines about how to make your handles and attach them to the body, and some pointers on how to use the tool. If you’d like to review the instructions before you buy just drop me a convo and I’ll send the .PDF files.
