Overview

Hollowing out a vessel or bowl just got a lot safer and easier with the Carter Hollow Roller™ Vessel Turning System! The patent pending system uses a captive bar tool allowing you to focus on your work, and safely turn hollow forms and bowls using your own gouges and scrapers. The fully sealed bearing lubrication eliminates drag on the bar, giving you more control and a smoother flowing motion as you manipulate your turning tools. Constructed of heavy-gauge materials to dampen vibration, giving you a comfortable turning experience. Made in USA.

In order to utilize the Carter Hollow Roller Turning System with your lathe, a mounting stud is required (See "More Info" for details).

This thing works exactly as advertised!...

Lawrence F from Topeka, KS Posted July 12, 2013
This thing works exactly as advertised! If you set it up properly, it will take the average turner to a level you probably only wished you could achieve in just a few minutes. It makes hollow turning and internal undercutting safe and carefree. I have not chased a catch launched turned vessel across the floor yet and used to do it at least once per vessel before I got this. Believe the hype, this tool will free you to successfully turn vessels you would not have dared before you got the Carter Hollow Roller system.

Greatly speeds the process

Jim Posted November 5, 2014
I have not had this system for long or turned many vessels with it, but it greatly speeds the hollowing process and even first turning green bowls. It builds confidence to the point of having to worry about inattention. It does prevent the "peek and lift" problem, where the turner peeks into the vessel and lifts the tool handle into a catch.

Sharpening the small cutter is difficult. Rockler would do us a favor by carrying the sharpening jig, although a jig can be easily made by drilling a slightly undersized hole in a small hardwood block and jam fitting a split dowel.

I also have the laser guide and that speeds the process even more as it eliminates the constant stop and check business. I think i will love it until I improperly set it and blow out a side. The whole assembly is heavy and awkward looking but fully supported in the jig. It takes a bit more force to move and adds inertia, but practice compensates for it quickly.

I gave four stars only because the front support locking system is not highly engineered (a plate and a bolt) and has to be messed with to get it into alignment. I'm thinking of attaching a centering block on the bottom plate with a pass-through hole for the bolt (you're welcome, Carter).
