Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master™ v2

With the Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master™ v2, even a beginner can craft a pair of silky smooth, premium-quality chopsticks. The whole process takes only a few minutes and a few easy steps. Simply insert the blank into the base unit, which establishes the taper of your chopsticks, then use the included plane with guide skates to remove shavings, rotating the block to all eight sides until the desired octagonal taper is reached. Finally, use the integral clamp and guide to cut the 4-sided pyramidal finial at the wide end of each chopstick. The resulting chopsticks are incredibly smooth, with sharp, precise facets, and can sell for as much as $60 or more. This means it's possible to recoup the cost of the unit with just the included 10 sets of chopstick blanks. Thanks to the precision guides and fool-proof design, your very first pair is sure to be flawless and perfectly giftable or saleable.

Features:

  • A unique table top tool that lets anybody age 8 and up, regardless of experience, craft a pair of exhibition-quality chopsticks
  • Makes gracefully tapered, perfectly proportioned chopsticks that are square on the wide end and octagonal at the tip
  • Planed surface is incredibly smooth and requires minimal touch up
  • Included plane also makes an excellent small block plane when the skates are removed
  • Finished chopsticks can be sold as-is, or painted, air-brushed, gilded, lacquered, inlayed etc.
  • Includes 10 sets of chopstick blanks with fabric sleeves—order additional blanks from us (e.g. #67015), or make your own
  • Constructed primarily of precision machined anodized aluminum for a tool that will last for generations
  • Included honing guide and abrasive lets you keep the plane iron in top shape
  • Includes a red guide arm, which machines chopsticks with a 5mm tip
  • For chopsticks with a narrower 2mm tip, see the optional Green Arm (#63300, sold separately)
  • A Blue Arm for flat stock is also available separately (#67755)—great for inlay banding or kumiko
  • Kit includes base unit, guide arm for 5mm tips, block plane with depth skates, 30° honing guide and sharpening strip, 20 hardwood chopstick blanks with cotton sleeves, bottle of oil and logo marking pencil

Green Arm (2mm Tip) for Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master™

The Chopstick Master™ Green Arm has a steeper angle that creates a more pronounced taper on your chopsticks. The resulting tips measure 2mm in diameter, which is the traditional size in Japan. The standard red arm, on the other hand, creates a 5mm tip, which is traditional in China. Solid aluminum with a green anodized finish. Use with the Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master (#63993, sold separately).


Replacement Wedges for Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master™

These opposing wedges hold your chopstick blanks firmly in place while planing with the Chopstick Master™ jig (#63993, sold separately). They are identical to the wedges that come as standard equipment with your Chopstick Master™, and are available here as replacements in the event that the originals are lost or damaged.


5-Pack Replacement Honing Strips for Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master™

These replacement abrasive strips adhere to the bottom of your Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master™ v2, which provides a flat work surface on which to hone. They are equivalent to an 8000-grit honing stone (1 micron grit size), and are adhesive-backed for easy application. You should be able to make 6-10 sets of chopsticks before your plane's iron needs honing. If you go much longer, it will likely need resharpening first.


Chopstick Sleeves for Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master™, 10-Pack

The best chopsticks deserve the best accommodations. To that end, these cotton drawstring storage sleeves provide a comfy, classy home for each set you make. The sleeves are made from cotton canvas with a beautiful printed pattern and wooden beads at the ends of the drawstrings. Includes ten total sleeves, five with the blue motif, and 5 with the red motif, so couples can distinguish whose is whose.


Blue Arm (Flat Stock, No Taper) for Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master™

The Chopstick Master™ Blue Arm is for planing small pieces of flat stock. It can plane to as thin as 1/16'', making it ideal for strips of inlay. You can also use it to plane thicker material by simply adjusting the depth skids on the plane. Solid aluminum with a blue anodized finish. Works with the Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master v1 and v2 (#63993, sold separately).


Chopstick Blanks for Bridge City Tools Chopstick Master™, 10 Sets

These chopstick blanks are selected from the best stock and precisely surfaced and sized to work with your Chopstick Master v2 (#63993, sold separately). Blanks are available in maple, padauk and wenge. Maple is a favorite light-colored domestic species with smooth, tight grain. Padauk showcases reddish orange coloring that darkens over time to a purplish brown, while wenge is a dense, durable, coffee-colored wood with caramel-colored veins.

WOW! Not what I expected from Bridge City Tools
After reading reviews about bridge city tool works quality and workmanship, I expected a lot more.
First, You are not getting the aluminum depth skids as with the stand alone HP-8. The included depth skids and depth sled are plastic. The steel pivot pin going in and out of a hole in plastic and the impact of planning the pyramidal finial, these won't last long.
The unit I received (plane) had rear edge of throat plate is curled up ?
The manual and several online retailers state that the hook is machined aluminum, it is plastic too!
The HP-8 is advertised as a precision tool, Hum, the blade depth adjustment screw has 2.5 turns of backlash.
The included bottle of chop stick oil is empty with a note to fill it with any food grade oil.
The depth stop for making the pyramidal finial cuts had the screw installed from the wrong side which didn't allow any clamping force.
All of this screams poor quality.
