Frequently bought together:


Requires a Taper-Lock Bolster for every tool you plan to use with this system, or any Stuart Batty Taper-Lock Tool (sold separately)

The Taper-Lock Handle System is a modular handle system constructed with multi-composite and carbon fiber, making it stronger than steel and lighter than wood. Vibration is virtually eliminated. Because it tightens and loosens by hand, you never need an allen key or wrench for blade changes. The one drawback is that the tools are intended to be glued into the bolster. Since the tapered bolster will not fit in any other handle, any tool you mount in a bolster will only be compatible with Stuart Batty Taper-Lock handles. For those of you who like the carbon fiber handles but don't want to glue your tools, the same handles are available in an ER Collet version

- First ever carbon fiber handle for woodturning - lighter than wood, stronger than steel
- 10 handle lengths from 6 - 48 inches
- Carbon fiber handles eliminate vibration
- Fast, secure and simple Taper-Lock system does not require a wrench or allen key
- Ergonomic design

    Great Handle!

    This handle makes it simple to change from one tool to another in a short time. There is no vibration and the light weight of the handle gives you great control of all cuts. Recommend!!!

    I have 4 of these handles and love how easy it is to change as I get deeper into a vessel. I am converting all of my i handled tools to this system.
