2016 Simon Hope Single Ended Quick Release Handles


Introduced in 2016, these updated versions of the Simon Hope Quick Release Handles have the following improvements:

  • Better Grips.
  • Self Ejecting Heads.
  • Encapsulated Collets – as you un-tighten the head the Collet is pulled free which releases the blade.

Made in the UK using CNC processes. The Collets absorb vibrations and also prevent loosening.

There are 3 length options in this range of Simon Hope Quick Release Handles:

  • Small Single Ended (10″ Long).
  • Medium Single Ended (14″ Long).
  • Large Single Ended (20″ Long). ** Sold Out **

Choose from one of these three size Collets:

  • 9.8mm Collets will fit 3/8″ spindle and 1/4″ bowl gouges.
  • 13.2mm Collets will fit 1/2″ spindle and 3/8″ bowl gouges and any bar from 12.5 to 13.2mm diameter bars.
  • 16.2mm Collets will fit 1/2″ bowl gouges and 5/8″ to 16mm diameter bars.


If you wish to use these quick release heads on your older style black quick release handles, you can because they are compatible!
