This Round Carbide Mini Turning Tool from Rockler features 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 cutter also 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.


Features:

  • Ideal for giving you a smooth finish on curved, concave surfaces and for general turning applications
  • 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.

mini round carbide
Great for the price. Bought a second one to put the Easywood negative rake cutter on for plastics, so I do not have to change out the cutters

I am used to using traditional lathe tools, but this thing is so sharp and makes the smoothest cuts.

Great tool for turning Pens
Easy to use and stays sharp. Have already turned about 50 Pens with this and still as sharp as when I purchased it Solidly built and should last a lifetime. I would definitely recommend this tool.

Awesome tool
I've used this for over a thousand pens and still haven't had to replace the carbide. Do yourself a favor and get a good diamond sharpener like the credit card size. Use it often and the carbide will stay sharp for a long time. Just touch it up after having turned the carbide through its full revolution.

Sharpest tool in my shed
I purchased my original tool set from Harbor Freight and it claimed to be sharp out of the box. After the difficulty of turning my first peice i stopped by Rockler and picked up this tool. The difference in quality and ability to do its job dropped my jaw to the floor. This is a fantastic tool. 10/10 would buy more.

I broke the handle in my other when I got a catch when turning a bowl and it bent the shank I don't know if it has a wannity
albert r on Jun 16, 2016
I tried a friend's. It is much easier than a spindle gouge and safer, though feels like cheating. You will not learn traditional skills w this, but faster and safer re catches.

For turning the inside of goblets.

Would this work well for hollowing our smaller bowls? I know it would probably not be the best for larger, deeper projects, but maybe 8inch wide by 4 inch deep bowls? I would assume it would be no problem. Thanks!
Andrew R on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For smaller bowls this is good for hollowing
How well would this work for hollowing small hollow forms vessels like a baby rattle?
