    How This Tool Is Built

    We start with the sharpest edge, and we don't stop there. Vanquish vibration, say adios to constant resharpening, and let wispy shavings fly. Delivering superior performance at your lathe drives our manufacturing. 

    We’ve worked with M42 high speed steel for 4 decades, and it’s uniquely suited to woodturning. You’ll grind less - a cobalt additive provides unparalleled edge holding. And the steel produces a finer, sharper edge for clean cuts. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smoother cuts. 

    Our carefully sourced M42 starts as solid stock and is precision machined (not formed) with a unique round tang for unmatched strength. Every gouge sports a distinctive flute polish. This boosts the razor edge and provides efficient chip flow. Learn more about M42 HSS here.

    Rigorous and detailed sums up our manufacturing. Each tool’s vibration-demolishing round tang has a diameter so precise you’ll hear a ‘pop’ when you pull it out of the handle. And every tool leaves our factory razor sharp and backed by a 100% lifetime guarantee. Built to last!

    Rest assured our aluminum handles feel as great as they look. Perfectly weighted for balance and maneuverability, and designed to fit your hand. You’ll forget the handle is even there, in the best way possible. Two set screws secure your tool into the handle and allow removal for sharpening.

    From flute polish to handle knurling, we’re not cutting corners. Whether you’re just starting out, or have been turning for decades, it’s an honor to serve you with quality tools. Learn more about our story here

    Spindle Gouge

    Santa came through and got me another Carter & Sons gouge for Christmas! Santa has learned that there will never be a need to include a return label with that gift! 🙂

    The perfect spindle gouge

    I've been turning over 30 years. This is the best gouge I have ever seen. There is NOTHING wrong with it.
    2 features stand out for me. The flute is polished and perfectly contoured. The tang is ground to ridiculously precise tolerances and the flat is nice and long.
    Should my beads and coves lack perfection I certainly won't be able to blame the tool.

    Lives up to the rep

    Quite simply the best spindle gouge I've used. Takes a great edge, and it lasts . Easy to control. Great quality and craftsmanship. I'm getting a roughing gouge this weekend and I can hardly wait! Carter has a great rep for their tools and it's well deserved.

    Awesome spindle gouge

    After much research for a new spindle gouge, it was a clear choice. Love the quality and the workmanship of this small gouge. No disappointment at all. And a great company to work with. Made in the USA!

    GREAT Product & Service

    Already owning several Carter & Sons tools left no doubt about where I would purchase a needed spindle gouge. The quality speaks for itself.
    I was kept well informed on the progress of the order. Had a friendly response to a question. And, the gouge arrived in short order.
    Who could ask for anything better?
