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.
How This Tool Is Built
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 every tool unequalled.
40 years in the making
M42 high speed steel has frequented our factory for 40 years 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's unique structure 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. But we're getting ahead of ourselves. First, let's talk about those good-looking handles.
They don't just look great, our patented aluminum design achieves balance and maneuverability. Each handle is bored out to a comfortable weight, and lead shot can be added as you desire.
Round tang (& other manufacturing marvels)
Our manufacturing process is rigorous and extensive, but glance at that tool to the left. Every inch is built for superior performance at your lathe.
A vibration-demolishing round tang with a diameter so precise you'll here a 'pop' when you pull it out of the handle. And flutes meticulously polished for speedy chip flow and a sharper edge. Sharpened and hand-inspected before arriving at your shop.
Our manufacturing is comprehensive. And when you take your tool to the lathe, you'll feel the workmanship.
