The original Richard Kell Bevel Gauge, in continuous
production for many years now. Beware of inferior fakes going the rounds, has not got my name on it nor has it got my quality. I pay great attention to
all points of detail, my deburring is second to none, once handled its obvious the quality. Twelve
accurate angle cut outs with apex cut-away to prevent damage to
prepared cutting edges. Overall 2 inches diameter. See my youtube channel on how to use it correctly.
Bevel Gauge £11.48 exc vat.
A deceptively simple plate square produced to 0.0005in ie half thou inch square along any edge, a tolerance tighter than
British standard engineers grade B. Overall 2.5in.
Plate Square price £8.16 exc vat.
Drill and Dowel Gauge
Drill and dowel gauge with a range of 1/8 to 1/2
inch dia. Again, surprisingly accurate, hole diameter to B.S. engineers
'h6' reamer tolerance. Overall 2 inches diameter.
Sorry to say my drill and dowel gauge is now discontinued.
Super Accurate Plate Brass Square
asked me for this for a long time, a super accurate tool that I reckon
is within one thou inch max deviation along any edge and in fact probably better. Dimensions 3 inch
inch long leg, 2-1/4 short leg. A nice tool to handle, to have on the
workbench, heavy too. Carefully machined with super crisp flat edges from
notoriously flat 3mm engravers 'compo' brass sheet. Once seen it really
does sell itself.
Price £38.72 ex vat.
Standard dovetail mark without slot, deluxe version
with slot to act as try square to aid marking out. Slope per edge
1:5 for softwoods, 1:8 for hardwoods. Solid brass 2-1/2 inches overall. Superb quality.
Std £21.11 plus vat
Dlx £22.36 plus vat
As with all my tools made from solid brass
and finished to a very high standard, my centre finder is to 8-3/4
in dia. capacity, overall tool 5-1/4 inches. This is the only device
capable of marking off a line at right angles to a curved edge,
Price £21.33 ex vat.
The Richard Kell Angle Master is a unique set of seven very accurate
angle templates including 45deg, eliminating any calculations
to set a machine 'spot-on'. Produced to one thou inch tolerance
along any four inch edge, tooling produced using toolmakers sine
bar and inspection grade slip gauges. The cuts per 360deg circle
are 4,6,8,12,24, and 32.
Hint: play around with scissors, paper and these
angle templates and you will not be able to hold back from cutting
and amount of different mitres.
Sorry, my Angle Master is no longer available.
Beautifully designed and made, flawless quality, close fitting threads and clamp knob. Solid
brass, heirloom quality, with hand turned detail, four inches overall. Sorry no longer available.
Price £53.70 exc vat.
Double Ended Caliper
The Richard Kell double ended caliper is five inches overall, incorporating
a unique high quality centre joint, comprising p.t.f.e. washer,
fitted bronze bush and close tolerance steel hub. The same caliper
functions in two modes, internal to external and by rotating 180deg is a very sensitive and precise wall thickness caliper. I made the prototype forty years ago for my own adventures in turning small work.
Sorry my double ended caliper is no longer available.
Plumb Bob and Case, hand turned solid
I'm re-introducing this after
nearly a quarter century being unavailable. I was the first to offer this commercially and has sadly been copied but not surpassed. Certainly hand crafted, very carefully made, illustrating the trade of 'brass finisher' a
line of work long extinct. Interestingly the handtool that I use to
form the outer bobbin concave flange is stamped H & D ie Holtzapffel
and Deyerlein a partnership that ceased around the same time that
Stephensons 'Rocket' first ran at the Rainhill Trials.
I have a few cased plumb bob available, price as per my no.2 LGE, order as and drop a note to say its the p/b you require. Tks.
well fitting sliding brass bobbins to 'remember' whatever dimension,
actually a handy device in my own place for 'centring' all my die-cut
packaging; spawned wheel marking gauges to follow. Heat blued nicely
turned steel locking screws onto 3/16 dia stainless rod 5-3/4 inch (ie
146mm) overall. I first offered this in the mid/late 1980's and as with
the plumb bob was one of those items discontinued because of being busy
with tooling for electronic circuit board assembly, with hindsight I
should have kept these items in production, other firms picked up the
ideas and called them their own!
Memory Stick no longer available.
