Description

A nifty tool with a variety of uses, the bedan can form steps on spindle work, a chucking foot on a bowl, and make plunge cuts on boxes. 

What makes a 5-star 3/8” bedan?

  • Round tang provides strength and longevity
  • 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 3/8” outside diameter x 9-1/2” overall
  • 1/2” tang diameter
  • 12” 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 HAPPY!! I BOUGHT SEVERAL TOOLS AND HANDLES. THE TOOLS I HAVE TRIED SO FAR WORK AS ADVERTISED. THEY ARE SHARP RIGHT OUT OF THE PACKAGE READY FOR USE. I WILL PROBABLY CONTINUE TO USE THE FACTORY GRIND. HAVE NOT DONE ANY SHARPENING YET AS I HAVEN'T USED THEM ENOUGH. TIME WILL TELL. I DO PLAN ON MORE PURCHASES IN THE FUTURE. THESE ARE NOW MY GO TO TURNING TOOLS. THANK YOU CARTER AND SONS.

    Impressive!

    I'm fairly new to turning, though I certainly have a shop full of other tools from welders to planers. I generally buy quality when I can afford it. Not so with my first woodturning set -- which was a reasonably low-cost starter from Hurricane which I have no complaints about. The Carter & Son bedan was my first quality tool purchase for my new addition and there is a very noticeable difference! Quality in every aspect! I strategically circled several more in the catalog and left it on my wife's vanity. Hopefully Santa will be bring in some more Carter and Son tools to replace/enhance my entry set!
