Frequently bought together:


For use with the Stuart Batty Taper-Lock Handles. The bolster will accommodate a 3/4" diameter tool without an adapter, but adapter sleeves are offered for 1/4", 3/8", 7/16", 1/2".

For 5/8" please now use the 5/8" bolster 259988 

For a limited time, get a free adapter sleeve with each 3/4" bolster you purchase.

The adapter sleeves are simply aluminum sleeves that reduce the 3/4" diameter down to the diameter of your tool (i.e. if you have a 1/2" bowl gouge, you will need a bolster and a 1/2" adapter sleeve) Sleeves are aluminum so you can re-bore to match the tool diameter of the tool.


The SB bolster requires any 5 minute 2 part epoxy for semi-permanent blade adhering. Once your blade is glued into the bolster it will be secure and ready to use. There is no need for an allen key to lock or unlock it from your handle, and your blade will fit into any one of the SB Taper-Lock Handles in seconds. To replace the blade heat up the blade to soften the glue, remove, clean and replace. 

Glue NOT included (we can not correct the link below that says it does).

Bolster only, tool and handle not included.

    Stuart Batty standard 3/4” bolster for the taperlock handle

    Posted by Steve on Oct 22nd 2019

    I took a three day class with Stuart a couple of years ago and I liked his tool handles so much that I have been installing the bolsters on all of my turning tools. Being able to remove the tool from the handle makes them so much easier to sharpen I also have the option of switching to a longer handles when needed.

    SB Tool System Bolster

    Posted by Carl Staab on Aug 15th 2019

    I am a firm believer in the SB Tools taper lock handle system. I needed an additional bolster for a new box scrapper. I was thrilled that they are still available.

    SB Bolsers

    These bolsters are awesome for a quick change in the SB handles. I have removed 12 of my gouges, scrapers, etc and placed them in the SB Bolster. It is a fast and easy process. I appreciate Woodworkers Emporium providing the different adapters with the Bolster. The custom made adapter to fit scraper tangs are awesome. Custom fit and hold really well.

    Workmenship is the best

    Posted by Robert Woodward on Jul 30th 2018

    The only problem I have is that for my whole order of SB tools I paid for USPS priority mail and that was not how it was shipped. Don't get me wrong Stuart Batty tools are the best but the shipping department needs some work.

    Note: Sorry about that. Our "shipping department" consists of only me, and I was out sick that day. My boss was shipping orders, and he made a few rookie errors. Sorry again for the mistake.

    SB Bolster

    Considering how good the female and handle parts are, having the ability to add more tools into these bolsters is fantastic and considering the machining and finish of these parts, the price is great!

    Convenience plus practicality

    Posted by Harry Wicks on Oct 18th 2016

    I have begun the switch-over to the Stu Batty system and like it---a lot. Many of my older bowl and spindle gouges are wearing down and out, As they do,. each will be replaced by a handleless gouge inserted in the 'Batty Bolster'.
    Space is at a premium in my new shop and this generation of turning tools helps save some wall space. .
