MINIGLASER QR MODULAR WOODTURNING SYSTEM
>>> AVAILABLE NOW! <<<

IT IS HERE AND READY TO IMPRESS YOU!

 

THIS VIDEO SHOWCASES OUR 1ST PROTOTYPE! THE CURRENT SYSTEM HAS BEEN UPDATED!
 

This development is the next generation applied to Jerry Glaser’s legendary understanding of tool steels, tool shapes and modularity!

The miniGlaser QR system is new, is fresh and it is clever! It is a complete departure from what is in the market today. You can say goodbye to the Allen wrenches and set screws.

The system offers a whole new concept in reliability and modularity.  It consists of 9 tools encased in our worldwide patented adapter holding system, which is machined to extremely high tolerances.  The handle serves as a unique holding device, the design of which is totally new to the industry.

KEEP IN MIND THAT ANY TIGHT TOLERANCE SYSTEM REQUIRES SPECIAL ATTENTION TO CLEANLINESS. ALWAYS KEEP YOUR ADAPTERS AND TOOLS FREE OF DEBRIS. OUR TIGHT TOLERANCE SYSTEM SHOWCASES TOLERANCES IN THE RANGE OF 1/10th OF ONE THOUSAND

The entire system is offered in a custom personalized pouch, which is extremely compact and highly portable.  Our entire system weights slightly over 4 lbs. The tools are made from our flagship steel (CPM10V)l and then subjected to a proprietary treatment which, greatly enhances the edge performance and protects the finish against rust and corrosion and adds natural lubricity to the steel.

The handle extrusion maintains Jerry Glaser’s visionary lead shot filled system and the no-roll design. The lead filled handle is designed to absorb vibration and reduce stress caused by harmonics and most importantly reduces fatigue.  It will come filled with approximately 20 grams of vibration absorbing lead. Handle color is BLACK.

The set includes the following tools:

  • 3/4″ Spindle Roughing Gouge
  • 1/2″ Continental Gouge
  • 3/8″ Oval Bowl Gouge
  • 3/8″ Detail Gouge
  • 1/4″ Detail Gouge
  • 7/16″ Skew Chisel
  • 7/16″ Round Nose Scraper
  • 7/16″  Square Edge Scraper
  • 1/16″ Parting Tool

The retail price for the set of 9 tools with our patented adapter, the patented quick release handle system, and custom embroidered pouch is $699. (approximately $77 per tool).

  • You will have the choice to enhance your set by purchasing the following tools separately
  • 3/8″ Beading Tool
  • 3/8″ French Bedan
  • 1/4″ Point Tool
OUR PATENTS ARE FILED AND PENDING WORLDWIDE!

>>>THE INSPIRATION
Our patent pending QR system is truly the most innovative development in woodturning in the last decade. The miniGlaser Quick Release system is being manufactured at Advanced Theoretical Concepts, Inc. – ATC using some of the most advanced quality control systems available today. BUT, it was Jacques Vesery ( www.jacquesvesery.com) who gave me the insight on how we could develop this fantastic system. I remember receiving a picture from Jacques after he “enhanced” our miniG set of 13 tools we gave him at the AAW 20th anniversary show in Louisville, KY. He cleverly changed the system and made it very modular. And then, he wrapped it in his green navy bag. I immediately contacted him and asked to borrow the little bag. The result is a phenomenal set of the highest quality tools in the world today.

So, besides loving this man like a brother, I must say that he was the one who pushed my development.

I just wish I could make the beautiful things he does…. Oh well! I have to be content with the tools 🙂

Some of the top professional woodturners will be using this phenomenal tool system. I am honored to have Bonnie Klein be one of the first professionals to recognize the advantage of using this innovative “quick release system”.

I am positive you will be delighted as they are with the quality, uniqueness and performance of the set.

JANUARY, 2017 – HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

ALL HANDLES NOW SHOWCASE THE NEW VIBRATION GEL DAMPENING SYSTEM - NO MORE LEAD FILLED HANDLES!
One of the greatest things at Glaser Hitec Engineering, is to be blessed with the ability to constantly experiment and innovate. This principle has been the core of our efforts since Jerry started this company back in 1966.

During one of our developments with Space Exploration Projects, we were able to create a gel compound designed to protect and reduce vibration in the compartment which houses spaceship components. The result was a state-of-the-art compound which will replace the lead in ALL our handles, substantially reducing the weight, but increasing the vibration dampening properties which Jerry Glaser developed back in 1985.
>>>We are positive the results will amaze you!
