Where can I get the tool in this video?

Post  Gideon on Wed Sep 26, 2012 10:40 am

In 3:34 of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEN-vV3jrTw&feature=plcp a "bonsai jack" was used to bend the trunk. I googled this and could not find a place to buy it. Where can I purchase one or is there another name for it that I can use to search for?

I watched the video and don't recall ever seeing these for sale. It resembles a furniture clamp but with curved ends (to go around branches) rather than flat.

There are several similar tools on the market. I am sure others will have better sources. If not, here some starting pointas:

Very close to what is shown:

http://www.stonelantern.com/Large_Branch_Jack_p/tcbj6.htm

This is one, similar concept, different solution:

This looks like what Bjorn had in the video, but this is the Chinese Wholesaler, I don't think he is offering to sell just one.

You can by several kinds on the Bonsai web shop of William Vlaanderen (The Netherlands) the inventor off the Samurai carving tools and a good potter as well!

Don't ask! It's a "Dutch" thing! Smile
