Set of all 5 Veritas Canada tapered tenon cutters 3/8 through 5/8
May 12, 2019
As many things as I find, very few are this special. This is a set of all 5 Veritas tapered tenon cutters – 3/8″, 7/16″, 1/2″, 9/16″ and 5/8. All except the 3/8 have the box, the instructions and the little allen wrench. These are very substantial tools. They weigh in at 12 ounces and up. 090 (11 gauge) thick. All of the blades are factory sharp, never sharpened. The 3/8 tool had some use, which is why I included a picture of the back (fourth picture). If the others had use, it was minimal. The blade on the 5/8 tool has some purely cosmetic surface staining (eighth picture). I backed out the blades to check them and for the pictures. You will need to adjust the blades for use. From the Lee Valley website. Our tapered tenon cutters will put tapered tenons on the tips of turnings, dowels or rustic furniture components to fit into tapered holes for example, legs and spindles on a Windsor chair. Use the cutter like a hand-held pencil sharpener; you either rotate the workpiece while pressing it into the cutter body or you can rotate the tool on the workpiece. Works equally well in soft, green or hard woods. Although the body design is similar to our Veritas dowel and tenon cutters, the cut is quite different. When a tenon is fed through the body, the straight-edged blade tapers the ends, whereas the curved blade on our dowel cutters cuts cylindrical tenons with a radiused shoulder. Please note, the curved blade (for dowel making) should be used with only the three smallest sizes of tenon cutters (05J61.04, 05J61.05 and 05J61.06). The size given for each cutter is the minimum tenon diameter it will cut the maximum is 1/2″ greater, over a total tenon length of 2-1/2″. A starter kit of the 3/8″, 1/2″ and 5/8 sizes will cover most tenoning requirements for typical chairmaking. Some longer tenons may require cutting the major diameter with a larger cutter, and then finishing with a smaller cutter; if you have all five sizes you will be able to cut any diameter tenon up to 1-1/8″ in diameter and as long as 2″ in a single operation.
