False Noses and Pigtail adapters

Special OfferFalse Noses and Pigtail adapters

Currently on special offer!

Which is which

False noses (see top in photo) enable a bench grinder to be adapted for use as a polishing machine. Strip the guards and stones off and secure the noses (sleeve on fitting - grub screw retention). When correctly fitted mop will rotate towards you in order that any "snatch" of workpiece from your grasp propels it towards the floor and not up into your face!!!!
Guarding upon adaptation is an important safety consideration!!!
Grinders will handle all of the mop sizes we sell - for larger diameter mops simply raise the grinder on a wooden block.

Pigtails (single - bottom in photo) enable use of mops with a veice secured electric drill. Best to have one pigtail per mop as they take a very very tight grip!! Fit most domestic chucks to 1/2"
False noses are **NEW** and unused but may have light layer of surface rust

Cow horn, Craft Grade

Special OfferCow horn, Craft Grade

Currently on special offer!



We source these horns in West Africa for a variety of reasons. Availability, size, versatility in application, but above all else, colour. Like all cow horns, they either have darker ( black ) or lighter ( varying shades of brown ). Whatever colour is present in the tip, it diffuses into streaked, lighter / cream and white colour as you move up the horn towards the broad, hollow end.
All horns are cored out, boil washed and hygenic - just as we receive them.
Typically they will be used for drinking horns, blowing horns, powder horns or cuttting down to yield a variety of plates / rounds / tips for use in making smaller items such as spoons, bangles, shoe horns and other items too numerous to mention.
If the colours look good "in the raw", then just wait until they are sanded and polished, when the material really comes alive with stark contrasting tones and depth of colour.
Please bear in mind that pretty much 100% of cow horns suffer from internal concentric splitting to a greater or lesser extent...a seperation of layers that is always present. This is not something that we can effectively select to avoid - it's always there, period. A little care will however get you around it and it need not necessarily be to the detriment of the worked article, especially once you have "the hang" of working with the material.
Categorised in three different length classes.,
18 - 24"
24 - 30"
30"+ ( up to 44" on occasion )
Call us to discuss individual selection tailored to your requirements or put some relevant comments in the field at the end of the ordering process please.

Buffalo Lyre handle

Special OfferBuffalo Lyre handle

Currently on special offer!

Shaped like a "Lyre" these pieces are widely popular and sought after, making most attractive thumbstick or stalking pole tops. Many with attractive veining visible in finished surface.



Loose leaf

Special OfferLoose leaf

Currently on special offer!

Mixed grade fabric mop incorporating linen and cotton. All 1" working width and in the following diameters.....

3" - smallest - best for "inside lines" on handles

6" - handy "all rounder", perfectly satisfactory for lighter grinders where you do not wish to overstress the bearings.

8" - by far the most popular mop, it's 4 inch "reach" enables most handles to be polished to the centre mark, meaning that very few "nooks" are inaccessible!!!

10" - this 1/2" working width mop in fine and "floppy" in use and reaches (flexibly) a little further than the 8" if you are doing a lot of handles.

**** SALE OF LIGHT & MEDIUM WEIGHT HANDLES***

Cow Horn Tips

Special OfferCow Horn Tips

Currently on special offer!

Well coloured, thick walled, substantial tips cut from bulk stock of "Craft Grade" horns. Broadly categorised as "dark" ( black and dark brown finish) and lighter ( light brown, cream and olive tones ). The tip colour will diffuse back into lighter cream and white colours as you move towards the broad end of the piece. Generously cut - usually 8" - 10" in length.
Note: ALL cow horns suffer from splits. Should minor splitting be evident in these horns, ,then for stickmaking, it is assumed that they will be shanked on the nose end and "capped off" or "domed" ( with resin ).
That said, no cracking present will be to the potential detriment of the finished piece.

8 inch VFA

Special Offer8 inch VFA

Currently on special offer!

4 lap Scotchbrite (VFA) mop, produces "satin" like surface effect when used gently on horn, saves a lot of time on sandpapering!!!

The COARSE mop is ideal for stripping back natural weathered surface on cow horns prior to polishing.

Both of these items when run on a polisher or grinder motor do a great , timesaving job, BUT have the ability to cause significant abrasive damage to your fingers / skin and also generate dust. Due care and appropriate protective clothing and dust extraction should be used!!!!
