The Lyle Jamieson Basic Hollowing System for safer, in-control hollowing that is fun, too.

This item will ship from Traverse City Michigan direct from Lyle Jamieson.

The Lyle Jamieson Basic Hollowing System system consist of:

  • A 3/4″ diameter 17″ long dual purpose boring bar
  • A straight swivel cutter head assembly
  • A bent swivel cutter hear assembly
  • A “D” shaped handle
  • A lathe mounted secondary backrest
  • A laser light measuring system




This system simplifies the hollowing process. A turner can stand beside the lathe and gently guide the cutter into the vessel with fingertip control. No more white knuckling it when you get 8 to 10 inches dangling off the tool rest to do the bottom inside of a vessel. No more sitting on top of your lathe. No more fear of catches. This system takes both the mental and physical stresses out of hollow form turning. It’s all about the fun! It adds an element of total control not achieved with other tools. It greatly improves safety and prevents catches.  The system removes any twisting force common to bent tools not supported in this manner. The fingertip control allows thinner forms and smooth inside surfaces even when doing a piece with voids.
