I Got a Hunter Cutter-So What'd I Do?

Made a tool of course. Oh, and a handle.

Very nice Tim,
What kind of wood is that? Every time you go to pick that up to use you'll appreciate it that much more. Custom handles make them something special.

I hope the screw holds. They have a special screw that has a taper that perfectly fits the taper on the Hunter cutters. These lock the tool from spinning. If you use a non tapered screw it could spin or if you tighten it down too much it could break the carbide cutter. Mike Hunter also sells the screws. I know they are expensive but in theory you should only need one for the life of the tool.
If you haven't seen my video on using the hunter tools check it out, maybe it will shorten the learning curve.

Hey Mike, the handle is Silver Maple. John, it is an original screw, I got the last one woodcraft had in stock. I don't know about only needing 1 screw. You don't know how good I am at losing things, even if I just had it in my hand.

Yeah, but the good news is that as soon as you buy the replacement, the old one will turn up and then you'll have two.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Just curious as to why you used a picture of my tool as the 3rd picture you posted? That closeup is of the cutter on my tool that I made and posted a pic of on June 11th in another forum. If you look at the cutter in your first pic and the third one, it is obvious that the screw is different and the shape of the metal surrounding the cutter is different. Weren't you proud of your own tool.
Chris

Photo has been corrected, Thanks Tim!

Chris, You have my apologies. After doing some looking around on my computers I had a similarly named photo and uploaded the wrong one. No dastardly deeds indeeded.
