Rockler Introduces Carbide Pen Turning Tools

Specialized 3-Piece Tool Set is Ideal for Pens and Other Small Projects

MEDINA, MN (December 10, 2013) - Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced a 3-Piece Carbide Pen Turning Tool Set specifically designed to provide control and ease of use for pen turning and other small turning projects. Similar to the larger version of the turning tools Rockler offers, the carbide cutter heads are pre-sharpened and can be rotated when dull to use a fresh edge, allowing users to start turning immediately and continue over an extended period of use without the need for expensive sharpening equipment. The set includes round and square radius carbide cutting tools, a high speed steel (HSS) parting tool, and a convenient storage box. The Carbide Pen Turning Tool Set is ideal for projects such as pens, bottle stoppers, coffee scoops, and key ring accents.


"This tool set is specially geared to allow people to get started turning immediately," says Steve Krohmer, Rockler's Vice President of Product Marketing. "They are ideal for completing small projects with control, comfort, and efficiency, they are ready to go right out of the box, and they are built to last."


The 3-Piece Carbide Pen Turning Tool Set includes a 1/2" round carbide tool, a 1/2" square radius carbide tool with 2" cutting radius, and a 1/8" HSS parting tool. The parting tool can be sharpened when dull, while the cutter heads can be rotated to use a fresh sharp edge. Each tool features an ash handle and an ergonomic rubber grip for maximum control and comfort while using the tools.


The 3-Piece Carbide Pen Turning Tool Set (47600) retails for $129.99 and can be purchased at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler independent resellers,, or from the Rockler catalog.
