M42 HIGH SPEED STEEL
It’s no wonder M42 is favored across industries. M42’s red hardness is off the charts, meaning impressive wear resistance at your lathe. And M42’s unique composition produces a finer, sharper edge. Less time at the grinder - cleaner cuts at the lathe.
40 years of manufacturing expertise is the foundation of every tool.
Fueled by meticulous designs (such as a round tang for enhanced stability and strength), attention to details (like our hand-polished flute), and pursuit of innovation (100% interchangeability), your Carter & Son tool's performance will exceed your expectations with every trip to the lathe.

Experience comfort and control at your lathe. Aluminum is the perfect weight for a balanced, even feel. And our patented handle shape fits your hand.
