I did not have the proper hollowing tools for deep vases and I did not want to spend over $200, so I made them.
Steel was purchased from a local steel supplier, handles were junk pipe and scrap aluminum from work, purchased the cutters on line, and hose from a hardware store. Fortunately I have access to a mill and metal lathe at work which made cutting the steel much easier than with a hack saw.
The long, straight hollower is about 32” longs and the handle is removable. The swan neck tool is about 20” long and also has a removable handle. I still need to get more hose to cover the aluminum handle.
