Overview

Our Mini Carbide Turning Tools feature a replaceable and rotatable cutter that eliminates the hassle and downtime of sharpening. Simply rotate the carbide cutter for a fresh, sharp edge, and replace it once all available edges have grown dull. The solid carbide cutting edges stay sharper, longer when compared to steel. The handles are turned from fine, solid ash, and are ergonomic with molded rubber that enhances your grip and reduces fatigue.

The tools are available in three cutting profiles: round, square and diamond-shaped. Total overall length of Mini Turning Tools is approximately 13-1/2". Ash handles are 9-1/2" long from the butt of the handle to the top of the stainless steel ferrule. Length of the shaft is approximately 4". Carbide cutters are not interchangeable between the different tools.

  • Diamond Carbide Mini Turning Tool is ideal for use as a parting tool, and for tight profiles. Overall length of the diamond cutter is 1-1/8". Angle of diamond cutter is approximately 35 degrees.
  • Square Carbide Mini Turning Tool is ideal for flat or convex areas on spindles and pen turnings. Square cutter is 3/8" square.
  • Round Carbide Mini Turning Tool is ideal for producing a smooth finish on curved, concave surfaces and for general turning applications. Diameter of the circular cutter is just under 1/2".

Tools are superbly made and work well beyond my expectations. These are very pretty and look quite smart in their presentation box. Utility and appearance, the hallmark of a good tool. This is true for nearly every Rockler produced item I've purchased in the last 15 years. Well done Rockler!

I am newer to turning and these were recommended to me at Rockler. First off these are amazing tools to work with, they cut great and are easy to work with. I have found I need a much lighter touch using them. All around great product.

Have now owned this set for a couple months now. The short shaft is great supplement to my set of longer tools. They work great for turning small items like pens or in my case adding details to spindles or small bowl work. These are still scrapers so even though they keep their edge longer they will still have the same problems as a standard scraper. They come with a PVC tubing protector on each of their ends that is very stiff, so I had to push off the tubing verses being able to pull it off. Care is needed when pushing this tube off so you don't cut yourself! Even though I don't mind sharpening I found that it is easy to remove the carbide cutters and with a couple of strokes the top surface only a fine diamond stone I was back to turning within a minute. I knowing that I will not have to sharpen again for quite some time. The unique handles with the small flat on the tool shaft are well made and help creating small details quickly.
