Product Code: CROGRCTW
Many Tuners say they get enough accidental chatter on their work already, without doing it deliberately!
However the Chattertool allows an extra decorative option that can make flat or domed surfaces far more interesting than it might be, if left plain.
Chatterwork is most effective on endgrain, and will work on most hardwoods.
If used on a bland wood (e.g. Beech, Maple) the effect can be greatly enhanced by colouring the patterns.
On a darker wood, lighter colouration (e.g. Gold, Silver or White Cream) works well.
There are a number of factors that vary the degree and nature of the effect created by a Chattertool.
This is a scraping action and the tool rest is best raised slightly allowing the tool to trail slightly. There are certainly many patterns that can be created by varying these factors (e.g. Lathe Speed, Blade Protrusion, Toolrest Spacing, Toolrest Height, Tool Speed).
