  • 16 x 3/4" handle

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. 

Carter & Son Workmanship

  • Every tool starts with a meticulous design. For example, a unique round tang is designed for strength and chatter-reduction.
  • All our materials are certified and sourced in the United States. 
  • Throughout our precision manufacturing process we keep tolerances tight. This ensures strength, longevity, and cuts chatter. 
  • Your tool has been hand-polished, sharpened and inspected. Quality is in the details, and details are our specialty. 
  • At Carter & Son Toolworks our customers are most important. Returns are hassle-free. Our sharpening center is happy to answer questions. Give us a call or send us an email anytime. Visit our contact page. 

In our Seattle factory meticulous designs (like a round tang for enhanced strength) meet American materials. Precision manufacturing keeps tolerances tight (boosting control and cutting chatter). And you’ll know it’s a Carter & Son tool by the personal touches. Like a hand-polished flute and  sharp edge. We get the details right. You experience quality at the lathe.

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 .

Review on bowl gouge and round nose scrapper

These tools are amazing! Not only do they hold an amazing edge but instead of taking them back to the grinder I just use a diamond hone to tune them up. The weight of these handles are perfectly weighted to give you great balance and less chatter. The round nose scrapper really changed the game for me! I use it on the inside of bowls and it gives me beautiful shaving and a perfect transition from the bottom to the top of my bowls. These products are the best I have ever use and although they are a little expensive, you get what you pay for! I really wish they would send me some tools to do more reviews on :)
