    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 drives our manufacturing. 

    We’ve worked with M42 high speed steel for decades, and it’s uniquely suited for woodturning. You’ll grind less - a cobalt additive bumps M42’s red hardness off the charts for impressive wear resistance. And the steel produces a finer, sharper edge for clean cuts. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smoother cuts. 

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

    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. Gouge flutes are meticulously polished for the sharpest edge. 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 and the tools right here

    Best parting tool

    Like all the other tools I ordered from Carter and Son, they are awesome.

    Another fine quality tool from you guys.

    These are my go to's now. The gouges like buttah! My skills as a new turner are all ready improving.......Thanks again guys! Back soon.

    High Quality, Honesty, & Integrity

    It is rare today to find a company with a quality product, superior and personal customer service and owners who stand behind their product 100%. In my month long correspondence, ordering, receiving and testing Carter and Son's tools my faith in how I was taught to do business is validated. This family owned business receives the highest recommendation that I can offer. Good work, Carter and Sons...!!

    Love my new Carter and son turning tools

    I recently received three of Carter and son toolworks tools and couldn't be happier with them. The M42 steel is holding a sharp edge and the construction and design of the tools is at a level above other tools I have for turning. I lke the aluminum handles particularly well with their precision fit and interchangeability if tools. I plan to buy more of their products in the future.

    Thank you for your review, Chris! I am so happy to hear you are enjoying your tools. Quality steel and precision workmanship really does make a difference at the lathe. It is our pleasure to serve you, give us a call anytime. Happy turning!
