Woodturning Kits and Products

 I have been a woodturner since 1990 and sell my work.  I feel more of a kindred to my customers
on that level and I will only sell the same quality products to you that I want to use myself. 
 If they do not say "SS Niles", they are not my stoppers nor food-grade quality steel.

Bottle Stopper Kits
Kits Designed to introduce you to turning bottle stoppers.


**
The Penn State bottle stopper mandrel that threads onto the spindle works with my stoppers.
** If you want an 11/32" stub bit with the package, let me know and I will include it.  This
 would be used with Spectraply colorwood and resins.  The good colorwood that is
beech laminate works with the 21/64" stub drill bits.
 

The draw bar threads into the mandrel then goes through the head
stock, tightened knob to secure.
