Duck Call Making Tool

Jan 19th, 2011 | By | Category: Tool Discussions

There are several duck call making tools available to secure your duck call blank for turning.   I own several mandrels that work great, however I find that the  #2MT Alignment Tool works best for me  especially when I turn acrylic game calls.  It allows me the ability to install and remove the blank quickly and easily.  I also use a 60 degree bull nose live center mounted in the tail stock to securely position the blank onto the #2MT Alignment Tool.  Here are a couple of pictures of the tool that is secured into the headstock of my Jet Mini Lathe:

Here are a couple of pictures of the duck call barrel positioned into place and ready for turning:

Here is a picture of two #2MT Alignment Tools that I have.  The one in the top of the picture is one that I cut short in order to use it for polishing the inside of the barrel.  This allows me to reach further into the barrel.  The one in the bottom of the picture is the standard #2MT Alignment Tool:

The final picture shows the acrylic duck call barrel mounted onto the #2MT Alignment Tool and ready for sanding and polishing:
