16 Inch Thompson Tool Handle





For most of my turning life I have used wooden handle on my tools.  Now, since I have started using the Thompson handle I have fallen in love with it, right after my wife, Dori LOL.  I realize the advantage of removing the handle, is huge!  I remove the handle to sharpen.  I remove the handle to sheer scrape on hollow forms when the bed or headstock gets in the way of sheer scraping with the handle down.  I prefer a lighter handle, so I remove Doug Thompson’s steel shot.

The Thompson handle fits all 5/8 inch diameter tools.  There are adapters available for other size tools.
