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.

You’ve NEVER Used a Tool Like This!

The Carter & Son turning tools are by far THE most superior woodturning tools I have ever had the great pleasure of using. The highest quality steel that requires very little sharpening throughout the day if at all and keeps me at the lathe turning making wood shavings instead of metal. Right out of the box I was able to put these straight to work the moment they arrived, the negative rake scraper is mindblowingly sharp as are all of the tools and the finish that comes off this steel is unimaginable if you haven’t experienced it! I’ve used so many types of tools in the past and even some very “Easy” to use tools (if you know what I mean) and they all macerated the wood, causing me to do more sanding and work than necessary. I have consistently been coming straight off of cuts on a project and been able to skip all the way up to 400 grit paper to finish my projects off. I purchased the Ultimate Spindle Set with the Negative Rake Scraper, Box Scraper and Square Nose Scraper and I’m glad I did. I’ve been just turning pieces out left and right. They say “You’ll feel the difference” Boy will you ever! The handles are solid, they’re striking and genuinely beautiful works of art and the tools themselves are beefy, harder than a woodpeckers lips and cut out the vibration or chatter you could potentially experience with other tools. Make the leap, invest in yourself and your time, these tools will save you money and time! They’ll be the last turning tools you’ll ever need to buy!



Great tools nice folks

I am a complete neophyte when it comes to turning so I was very pleased when I spoke with the lady at Carter and sons. She could not be more welcoming and informative.
I highly recommend carter and Sons.
