    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.

    Double Ended Gouge

    First gouges

    Turning less than one year all carbide til now. I studied the market, choosing Carter and Son for the M42 alloy. I had some training in machine tools and own cobalt drills now. Design and manufacture seem spot on. Well Done!

    I’ll use friends, or my club, for sharpening for now

    Plus, the Carter tool handles are beautiful and fit my hands well.

    Elite Tool

    Hi, ty for the fast delivery. the gouge is just perfect and it stamina is wonder.

    Double Ended Gouge

    I have not had alot of time to use the new Double ended gouge, What I have experienced from the whole process of ordering, shipping and product receipt has been very plesant. Everything was received as stated and was extreemely well made. Excellent craftsmanship. I have been using carbide tools which have been working very well, but i wanted to have some bowl gouges to use also. The little bit I have used this gouge has left me very impressed. The videos were very helpful with the transition from carbide to this gouge. A bit of a learning curve but not bad when you have good instruction.

    First time use

    This is my first purchase of Carter and Sons tools. I can't say enough about them. They are very sharp right out of the package saving me time preparing for use. The double ended gouge is great with two distinct profiles allowing me to have two tools in one. The tool cuts through wood like butter leaving a nice surface behind. I absolutely love this tool. I plan on replacing all of my tools with Carter and Sons tools.
