How This Tool Is Built

We started with a sharper edge, but we didn't stop there. Vanquish vibration, say adios to constant resharpening, and let wispy shavings fly. Delivering superior performance at your lathe is what drives our manufacturing. Keep reading to step into our factory and discover the rigorous process that makes our tools unequalled.

It's been 40 years in the making. That's right, M42 high speed steel has frequented our factory for 4 decades and was a clear choice for the tools. You'll grind less - a cobalt additive bumps M42’s red hardness off the charts for impressive wear resistance. And cuts will be cleaner - the steel produces a finer, sharper edge. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smooth cuts. 

Our M42 starts as solid stock and is precision machined (not formed) with a unique round tang. 

Rigorous and extensive. That sums up our manufacturing process. But just glance at that good looking tool to the left. Every inch proclaims "superior performance at your lathe!"

This is perfectly demonstrated by each tool's vibration-demolishing round tang, with a diameter so precise you'll here a 'pop' when you pull it out of the handle. And the flutes, meticulously polished for speedy chip flow and a sharper edge. And of course, everything is sharp and hand-inspected before arriving at your shop. 

We haven't even started sharing about our patented aluminum handles! (Can you tell we love talking tools?) They're designed for balance, maneuverability, and interchangeability. 

Our manufacturing is comprehensive. At the lathe, you'll feel the workmanship.

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!
