Designed, developed and manufactured in the UK, the UJK Technology Parf Guide System introduces ‘a new way of working’ – saving time while ensuring effortless precision.

Throughout the month, you’ll be able to get ‘hands on’ with innovative UJK Technology solutions in all our stores – but make sure you don’t miss the main store demonstration on Saturday 24th February. This will provide a detailed guide to using the Parf Guide System, and getting the most out of multifunction workbenches, tools and accessories to achieve professional results in a variety of project applications.
Phil Irons is well known on both the UK and international woodturning scene.
He will be spending the day in store demonstrating tools from Woodcut, with whom he has a long association. His main focus will be on the Bowlsaver MAX3 - a tool which will enable you to get an increased output from a piece of wood. Phil will also be using Tru-Grind sharpening jigs and Pro-Forme hollowing tools.
By his own admission, Phil derives most pleasure and satisfaction from turning hollow forms. He has created some beautiful vases and incredible one-off masterpieces.
Phil also enjoys teaching and offers a number of courses at his workshop in Welford-on-Avon, Warwickshire. Courses range from beginners’ hobby level classes to the more advanced master classes on the lathe.
