The Iron Fire Indexing Wheel manufactured by Flute Master is an outstanding wood working design and pattern-making tool that offers accurately engineered hole placements. This allows you to make consistent, evenly spaced construction lines, patterns and design layouts on two dimensional (2D) and three dimensional (3D) wood turning surfaces.

Limited only by the imagination, endless wood working enhancements are possible in fluting, wood burning, dyeing, scribing, carving, chip carving, marking, scoring, piercing, inlays and more!
