In develop for over 5 years the Lighting Hollower is fast being considered the most elegant hollowing solution on the market. In a fast growing dynamic field of wood turning.

Pull out your tool post pop in the Lightning hollower tool gate and you are ready to start hollowing.
I also wanted an easily adjustable laser. A laser that would focus a rock steady dot and put it right where I wanted. First time every time, with no trial and error and no possibility to shifting out of tolerance when the hollowing gets critical. All you do is dial the X-Y axis to precisely where you want it and go. I like to call it, "set it and forget it", adjustment.
Hollowing used to be considered a physically and mentally demanding process but not anymore. The Lighting Hollower makes hollowing easy to learn and a joy to grow your hollowing skills with.
The system comes complete ready to hollow and includes;
