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. 

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.

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.

Excellent

Excellent quality tool. First i ordered the essential set. Just ordered 2 scrapers which should arrive today or tomorrow. I have plans to order a few more tools, probably a small bowl gouge. I am very pleased with the quality of the tools and the advise given by Carter and Son. Like another reviewer wrote, "these are the best tools i have ever used". I am beyond pleased. Thank you.
