    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 hear 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, each tool is sharp and hand-inspected before arriving at your shop. 

    We haven't even started sharing about our patented aluminum handles! They're designed for balance, maneuverability, and interchangeability. 

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

    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!
