    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.

    Best tool I have in my rack

    I struggled with which bowl gouge to purchase seeing how I started turning with lower quality tools and needed to upgrade. I had purchased the 1/2 in bowl gouge a year ago and it is just a little small for the reach that I was having to make. I put a 40/40 grind on it and turned about 6 green bowls with it. Over all it was incredibly easier then with my older tools. The long solid 5/8 shaft of the gouge helped cut vibration down to almost nothing. It was a true game changer for me. Along with the the rigidity of the tool the edge of the cutting tool stayed sharp enough for me to put a finish cut on all 6 of my bowls even after removing the bulk of the material. I highly recommend this tool to all turners. A bonus was when I called David actually answered and talked me through the differences and helped me make the decision.
    Thanks David and Valerie,

    Very nice

    I received the the bottom feeder a couple days ago. It completed my Mike Mahoney set of bowl gouges. They are great, I love them. I personally wish I would have gotten more Carter And Sons Handles and not just use basic handles.

    The tools come Sharp and ready to use I would recommend Carter And Sons to any Tunner.

    Fantastic tool

    I just received the “bottom feeder” and tried it last night on a 14” bowl. What a fabulous tool and grind. It totally surpassed my expectation. I highly recommend.
