    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.

    1" skew

    I haven't had a chance to really put the 1" skew through its paces, but I did test it out smoothing a couple of spindles - one maple, one walnut - and was shocked by how smooth the resulting surface was. I already owned a lighter-duty 3/4" skew and it never produced anything close. I can only imagine what will be possible once I learn how to take best advantage of the new tool!

    High quality

    Ordered this to Learn how to use a slew chisel after seeing videos. Extremely sharp straight from the packaging. So sharp I cut my hand. The edge is still sharp after using for nearly an hour. I’m very happy with it so far.

    Turning is more fun with Carter & Sons tools

    I am actually amazed at how much vibration these tools absorb—they also cut just beautifully and I genuinely enjoy turning more with these tools. Simply damn awesome!!!
