You’ll be reaching for these essential tools for years to come. A powerful roughing gouge is the workhorse of your spindle turning. Our popular 1/2" spindle gouge excels at shaping, and the skew leaves a glassy finish and tackles detail work. A nifty bedan is used for plunge cuts, forming steps, and a range of other cuts.

  • Superior M42 high speed steel with a 10% cobalt content, for unparalleled edge holding 
  • M42 HSS' unique durability and razor edge mean less grinding and cleaner cuts

  • Put comfort and control first with an interchangeable aluminum handle
  • Handcrafted in the USA, and backed by a lifetime guarantee and hassle-free returns

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 bundle

Tools sharp enough to use right out of the box. They are angled nicely and function well. Sharpen like any high quality lathe tools.

The Best you can buy

This is an amazing company with exceptional product. They will contact you personally when you order and even tell you the steps your tools are going thru prior to shipping. The 1-1/4” spindle gouge is phenomenal. Highly recommended and will be a repeat customer

Quality Craftsmanship

I really like these tools. Quality product. Only issue is I don’t like having two handles for four tools. I bought a couple extra handles so I don’t need to disassemble every time I want to go from one turning tool to another.

Ultimate Spindle Set

Replacement for my 40-year-old set. MAJOR UPGRADE. The Bedan is a bonus. Cutters and handles have an excellent feel for weight and balance. Love the traditional taper of the handles. Bevel angles and edges spot on.
Super cuts. Can't wait to break these in. If you work in a cold space, be sure to check-out the elastic latex rubber 'handle' wrap, very comfy.
Signed with pride by Carter and Son Toolworks. Thanks!
