    Checkering tools

    Looking for either a set or single checkering tools. Mainly to be used for re-cutting checkering. Interested in what you have or if you know where there are some. Please private message.

    @Southcity whatever you get make sure that you get spare heads as they do go blunt especially on well aged walnut.
    I’ve got one of these Dembar tools https://www.amazon.co.uk/DEMBART-CHE.../dp/B003A07GMC
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    +1 To what Sideshow said. Pretty sure Steve's Wholesale is the Dembart NZ agent.

    Try eBay our Amazon. Do you know how many lines per square inch you want?

    That's a good question. I mainly want to recut/restore checkering after I have refinished a stock. I would think I will have to get several cutters to cover various lines per inch. 20 LPI is quite common so I would probably start there. Any other thoughts or ideas?

    I just went for a single point cutter for doing exactly what you are keen on doing. You would only worry about LPI if you wanted to re-cut faster by using the appropriate double point cutter. As mentioned, they do get blunt on a re-cut.
