Well thank you

I'm new to the Carter & Son tool system. I order several items not thinking I would need these adaptors. Before they sent my order they informed me that I would need these adaptors for the small bowl gouge - this is customer service for identifying my error and taking the time to explain it to me and correct it prior to me getting my shipment adverting my possible frustration not being able to use one of the unhandled tools I purchased. Top notch product and service. Made me a customer for all my future turning tools period!

Great Insert

Needing to "Downsize" to a 3/8" spindle gouge I purchased a 3/8" gouge and an insert for the Carter handle. Great product and less cost than a new tool with new handle.

Carter and Sons

All the tools are awesome! Straight out of the box they are perfectly sharp! Couldn’t ask for a better tool. Wish I had them all!!!
