Less,  here is a photo of mine. I also have the handle extension for it somewhere.
Oh Lord, Lead me not into temptation…

...Oh who am I kidding, follow me, I know a shortcut!

Finally managed to find a link to an Exocet
https://www.drechseltechnik.de/hp/produkte/detail.php?art=61&r=1&hg_id=52&g=10
It use to be sold by Craft Supplies UK and had 2 different shaped cutters available with the depth of cut being adjusted with a knurled bit at the head end which moved the shield. With the DAHT the knurled bit on the handle adjusted the depth of cut by moving the cutter as the shield was fixed to the shaft.

 Well done Mark in your investigations I think it is great the way woodturners try to answer Members Questions also well done to everyone who put the effort in to get the answers

....absolutely, John....it's one of the great assets of a forum such as this. I'll now be able to get an extensive response to my student.

Thanks to everyone who has gone to the trouble of adding to this thread.

Education is important, but wood turning is importanter.
