A hollowing gate is a specialized tool
rest for hollow-form turning. The gate is a pivoting
U-shaped saddle that cradles the tool shaft, resisting
torsional forces, limiting catches, and increasing overall
leverage and control.
The adjustable sliding saddle-arm can
be advanced up to 125mm (5") inside the mouth of
a hollow form to reduce chatter from tool overhang.
An invaluable hollowing assist, it comes
with saddles for13mm (1/2"), 16mm (5/8"),
and 19mm (3/4") diameter tool shafts.
