Rockler Ergonomic Turning Tools
The Rockler family of Ergonomic Turning Tools feature comfortably contoured ash handles encased in shock-absorbing rubber. Choose from tools with carbide insert cutters that never need sharpening or traditional high-speed steel tools.
If you prefer traditional turning tools over the newer carbide insert tools, the new Rockler 5-piece Traditional High-Speed Steel Ergonomic Turning Tool Set is sure to set you up for success. With comfortably contoured ash handles encased in shock-absorbing rubber, you'll spend hours at the lathe without excessive fatigue in your hands. And since you can sharpen them yourself, you'll cut down on expenses too. Made from premium Austrian tool steel, these chisels will leave an impressive finish that needs only the slightest sanding. Includes a 1/2'' parting tool, 3/8'' spindle gouge, 3/4'' spindle roughing gouge, 3/4'' skew, 1/2'' round nose scraper and a gift box that doubles as a storage case. Full-size handles are generously sized at 13'' long.
The Rockler Full-Size Carbide Turning Tools feature 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.
The Mini Ergonomic Carbide Turning Tools are a smaller, more economical version of our full-size turning tools. Each tool 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 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 Mini Carbide Tools are available in a three piece set or individually.
At only 9-1/2'' long, the Rockler Pen-Turning Ergonomic Carbide Turning Tools are the perfect size for turning pens, bottle stoppers and other small items. The carbide cutters can be easily rotated to expose a fresh edge. Set includes one high speed steel 1/8'' parting tool, and two tools with replaceable carbide cutters: a 1/2'' round cutter and a 1/2'' square cutter with a 2'' radius that produces an exceptionally smooth finish cut. Handles are solid ash encased in thick, molded rubber for excellent ergonomics and a sure grip.
Turning Tool Holders
Our turning tool holders put your tools in neat, sequential order, ensuring easy access at all times. You can line up as many holders as you need to accommodate your turning tool collection. Mount them to the wall behind your lathe so they're always within arm's reach, or to a panel that attaches to the lathe stand for easy access if your lathe is on casters. The Carbide Turning Tool Holder features foam clips that grip the shanks with enough resistance for a secure hold, but won't fight you when it's time to remove a tool. Rockler Traditional Turning Tool Holder features rare-earth magnets that hold the shanks securely in place, making it easy to remove and insert each tool, regardless of the shank diameter. Just set the heel end into the recess on the shelf and lean it back—the magnets take over from there.
