Tim, I wanted to comment about the Elbo Tool that I purchased from you. It is absolutely fantastic. When we spoke, I told you than I am a disabled Veteran that deals with muscle tremors in my arms that is a continuous issue that can sometimes wreak havoc while I am turning wood. Your Elbo Tool has made a world of difference in the shop and I highly recommend your product. I no longer come in at night with my neck and shoulders killing me and having to beg my wife for a massage. It has alleviated many of the issues that I constantly battled with due to my tremors, and I am back to having fun again without a lot of the frustration that I would run into. Thank you again Scott I had a LARGE very dry black walnut crotch on the lathe prior to going to SWAT. I had been hollowing with a different brand of hollowing system. I was even using a 1 1/8" bar because of the vibration. I had completed about 1/4 of the intended hollowing and it was beating me to death. I purchased the Elbow system at SWAT. I have a Vicmarc 300 short bed lathe and it requires a bed extension which was not available at SWAT. Tim graciously sent it to me within a very few days. This morning I mounted the system using his instructions. I am proud to say the system was so very easy to use...and no vibration using the 3/4" bar. I completed more hollowing on the 15" X 20" crotch in one hour than in the previous 2 days of turning with the other system. I discovered a different approach to the hollowing as I could now approach the piece from an angle instead of from straight in. I still want to order one of the carbide cutters later for finishing cuts on the inside of the piece. To me, the Elbow proved itself in this first hour of use. Very glad to and highly recommend this hollowing system!! Frank Hello Tim, Finally got a chance to try out the Elbo. I am impressed. Was able to hollow out a walnut vase to ¼ inch wall thickness about 5 ½ inches deep with very little chatter at the bottom. Nibbled out with light cuts and never had a sense of impending doom. . I tried once before and got one heck of a catch with a round carbide tool… Also am happy with the tool sharpening gauge. Makes sharpening  much easier. Ed Hi Tim, I am just beginning the journey of wood turning and recently purchased a couple of your DVDs from your website. I found them to be excellent - very informative and approachable at the same time. Great work! I really enjoyed your style and the content you produced. David The ELBO-Tool arrived Friday morning. I tried it out during the weekend. It is really a fine tool! I turned for hours and did not get tired as with normal bowl gouges. A good business. Beat Tim - I picked up an Elbo tool at SWAT and used it for the first time this weekend. It worked perfectly! It takes the worry out of hollowing. I will be looking for more hollowing projects now. Thanks for such a great product! Greg Here are a couple of pictures of your super Elbo tool from our shop.  Shara, one of our clients,  turned her very first bowl and was really happy with the experience. I expect she will be making many more. John is one of our volunteers, and a master carver.  I think he is well on the way to becoming a turner! We are all surprised at how quickly we get comfortable the Elbo, and we’re finding that we can easily make bowls that are much thinner than we could make them with conventional tools. Our next challenge is some hollowing, and we’ll send you pictures as we go.  In the meantime, we’re delighted and grateful!
