Description

Our most popular size spindle gouge, the 1/2” is built solid for roughing cuts and stays sharp for delicate details. 

What makes a 5-star 1/2” spindle gouge?

  • Polished flute for efficient chip flow & sharper edge
  • Superior M42 high speed steel ensures less grinding & cleaner cuts at the lathe
  • Put comfort and control first with an aluminum handle
  • Sharpened & inspected
  • Completely interchangeable handle system
  • 100% American manufacturing backed by a lifetime guarantee & hassle-free returns

The Specs

  • Blade measures 1/2” outside diameter x 8” overall
  • Flute measures 4-3/4”
  • 1/2” tang diameter
  • 12” or 10” x 3/4” handle & 1/2” adapter

M42 makes the cut

It’s no wonder M42 high speed steel is favored across industries. A distinct cobalt additive bumps M42’s red hardness off the charts for impressive wear resistance. And M42’s unique structure produces a finer, sharper edge. 

For you, M42 means less time grinding and cleaner cuts at the lathe. Carter & Son was founded because we realized many tools are machined from subpar steel, leaving us (and you!) making far too many trips to the grinder. M42 is the optimal steel for turning wood. It holds a long-lasting razor edge and is quickly sharpened on a conventional grinder.

Put comfort & control 1st 

Carter & Son handles offer comfort and control at your lathe. Aluminum is the perfect weight for a balanced feel. And the comfortable shape fits your hand. Tight tolerances achieved in our factory mean your tool and adapter fit snuggly, reducing vibration. Interchangeability is possible using our aluminum adapters.

    Very nice quality

    I’m new to turning I’ve been torn between the powder metal cutting tools , M2, M42, HSS and on and on. Too many options!
    I ordered a detail gouge from Carter and sons. And a detail gouge made of the powdered metal tools from another tool maker.
    They both were very sharp with both having nice handles. My first inexperienced thought was how much smoother the Carter and Son M42 cut. No chatter like the coarser edge on the other tool. High quality finish and I love the feel of the handle. I’m going with Carter and Sons.
