This Full-Size Carbide Turning Tool from Rockler features a replaceable, 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 cutter stays sharp for longer when compared with steel, giving you a much longer useful life. Shaft features a flattened back for stability when using the tool rest. The handles are made of solid ash encased with a thick, molded rubber end for an enhanced grip and reduced fatigue. They're great for beginning to advanced woodturners, ensuring quick success without the frustration of dull tools. Since you don't need to invest hundreds of dollars into sharpening equipment, they're also an excellent value.


Features:

  • Ideal for giving you a smooth finish in tight areas, such as the detailed beads and coves in spindle turnings
  • Total overall length of approximately 19-1/2'' provides the leverage needed for heavy work
  • No sharpening needed, thanks to the replaceable, rotatable carbide cutter
  • Ash handles are coated with a soft, grippy rubber for a secure, effortless grip and excellent ergonomics
  • Note: Carbide cutters are not interchangeable between the different tools.

Great tool. Bought all 4. Works well for pens and bowls, etc. I'm a new turner and made several bowls, pens, bottle stoppers, before getting my carbides. So much faster and easier.

Awesome tool at a GREAT price
Believe me, once you move to carbide tools, it is hard to switch back. They cut wood like butter! Don't get me wrong, sometimes I just want to use HSS, but these are truly great tools.

Not Surprised By Great Quality
I had never used these carbide turning tools, and turning isn't really my specialty, but this tool was fantastic. I have been using old-school turning tools forever. These new tools really made work faster. I found this on sale, and I didn't hesitate. WELL worth the price. Even at full boat!

Turning tools
I got this for my husband as well as the square and the round turning tools. He really likes them as they are well made, feel comfortable in his hands, and are long so that he can make deeper bowls.

Ken R on Feb 17, 2018
It may reach an area in my turning that is a bit overextended for normal tools; the handles are better than mine, less fatigue hanging off the back end. (That rubber is quite a shock taker, hope it holds up)
Walter P on Feb 9, 2018
Bought a lathe and needed tools. Great sale price. Should be offered as a set.

Does this tool come with a cutter included?
Dan H on Jul 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes the tip is included.
Are the cutting tips interchangeable with, say Sorby cutters?
