Woodcraft Pizza cutter on sale

Woodcraft have just started to sell a very robust pizza cutter kit. It is now on sale for $12. I just picked up a few to make Xmas gifts.

http://www.woodcraft.com/product/208...rning-kit.aspx

The kit includes a threaded 5/16in insert. I purchased the special tool to help install the insert.

Dominick, not yet. This kit needs a handle which is thicker than pen blanks.

I was thinking of gluing some of your pieces together with a contrasting wood in between to make a handle for one of these.

Stay tuned.

What about that bigger burl chunk? Is that not big enough? I'm waiting to get a new bandsaw blade to finish cutting up some more oak burl.
I'd be happy to send you a bigger piece. How big would it have to be for a handle?

Thanks for reminding me. I was too focused on the pen blanks. Doh!

I forgot about the larger pieces of spalted maple and oak burl. I definitely can use these.

I was looking at this and the other two (ice cream scoop and bottle opener) for gifts. The Pizza cutter looks nice. What is the special tool? Is it a threaded rod with handle to drive the in the insert?

To funny. Lol let me know how those turn.
I'm curious as to how that burl looks when turned into something other than a pretty block.

It is a T shaped tool with a thread at one end which matches the internal thread of the insert.

This is the one for the Pizza Cutter 5/16in insert.

http://www.woodcraft.com/product/200...8-inserts.aspx

I have a friend who tried to just use a screwdriver to install the insert and he advised they go in at an angle without the tool to keep the insert aligned.

Edit.
I was pondering the benefit of the insert, and I think it will allow the pizza cutter to be removed if needed to be put in the dishwasher without the handle getting damaged. This could be very useful.

For $5.50 I am getting this as cheap insurance to try and keep this simple.

Thanks for this information Dave (all of it, not just about the T-wrench). It might just have solved a gift-selecting problem I was having

(What size blank do you think is needed for these? 1 inch square or larger?)

Happy if this helps others with Xmas gift ideas.

The recommended size for the blank is 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 6 finished, plus extra 1in allowance for parting.

This is the link for the instructions.

I have not turned a handle yet so I do not know how conservative the recommendation is.

If the insert is used, this is about 1/2in dia including the threads. It may be possible to get by with a 1in blank depending on the strength of the wood.
