M42 high speed steel makes the cut

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

For woodturners M42’s properties mean less time at the grinder and cleaner cuts at the lathe. Carter and 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.

Handles that 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.

WOW!!

This is the first set of "real" turning tools I've ever used, and you can completely feel and see the difference. From being able to not bog down my HF special lathe to getting a very clean cut on semi-punky end grain, I cannot say enough positive things about these tools. Thank you Val for our discussions prior to me purchasing. It was very nice to be able to have communications with someone so knowledgable prior to making this type of purchase.

American made quality

Just rec’d the scrapper and bowl gouge. And I’m very impressed. I am a tool junkie and have most manufacture’s tools (except for carbide)
Best fit and finish of any of my tools. The only areas that are sharp are the cutting edges. Very comfortable to hold. Expensive but worth the expense. These tools will be my first choice for many years to come

Quality and customer service

Both quality and customer service are tops at Carter and Son. I bought the bowl starter kit consisting of a 5/8 inch bowl gouge and scraper. Worth the money. Quality costs more up front but is cheaper in the long run. I really liked the C and S tee shirt. I almost wore it before my daughter confiscated it for herself .
