Overview

Complete interchangeability is possible with Carter and Son Toolworks adapters. Each adapter is machined to precise parameters from aircraft grade aluminum, ensuring a chatter-reducing fit between tool and handle. Our adapters fit a 3/4” diameter handle, bringing the inside diameter down to 5/8", 1/2” or 3/8".

  • Lightweight yet durable aluminum
  • Groove on top makes the sleeves easy to slip in and out of the handle for a quick tool change
  • Made in the USA & backed by a lifetime guarantee 
  • Includes two necessary set screws

How This Tool Is Built

We start with the sharpest edge, and we don't stop there. Vanquish vibration, say adios to constant resharpening, and let wispy shavings fly. Delivering superior performance at your lathe drives our manufacturing. 

We’ve worked with M42 high speed steel for 4 decades, and it’s uniquely suited to woodturning. You’ll grind less - a cobalt additive provides unparalleled edge holding. And the steel produces a finer, sharper edge for clean cuts. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smoother cuts. 

Our carefully sourced M42 starts as solid stock and is precision machined (not formed) with a unique round tang for unmatched strength. Every gouge sports a distinctive flute polish. This boosts the razor edge and provides efficient chip flow. Learn more about M42 HSS here.

Rigorous and detailed sums up our manufacturing. Each tool’s vibration-demolishing round tang has a diameter so precise you’ll hear a ‘pop’ when you pull it out of the handle. And every tool leaves our factory razor sharp and backed by a 100% lifetime guarantee. Built to last!

Rest assured our aluminum handles feel as great as they look. Perfectly weighted for balance and maneuverability, and designed to fit your hand. You’ll forget the handle is even there, in the best way possible. Two set screws secure your tool into the handle and allow removal for sharpening.

From flute polish to handle knurling, we’re not cutting corners. Whether you’re just starting out, or have been turning for decades, it’s an honor to serve you with quality tools. Learn more about our story here

Using adapters for turning new handles

After obtaining additional materials, I finished one of three handles for my Carter & Son tools using one of the adapters and set screws. Adapter was instrumental in the design and build and will let me continue to swap out more blades while my aluminum handles are set up!

1/2” adapter

Carter and Sons turning tools and handles are the very best traditional wood lathe tools!
Love being able to use different length handles depending on the work in progress.
Highly recommend these tools.
