Solid product!
These carbide tips hold a factory edge for an impressive amount of time. I ordered replacements only to have on hand but aren’t evening required yet... and I’ve put them to the test!
Cocobolo rabbit distress I build for DownWind Outdoors. The mini carbide turning tool is clutch!

Where can I get a new screw?
BEST ANSWER: you can go to Rockler and find it in the turning area where they have turning tools and many other products all related to fine woodworking
how long do the cutters last?
A shopper on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This isn't an easy question to answer. It's almost like the old riddle, "How long is a piece of string?"
Answer: Twice as long as half as much.
Not at all helpful, I know, but it depends on the wood you are cutting, whether it's easy or difficult to turn, how long or short or infrequent your turning sessions are and whether or not you remember to turn them a bit when you find the cuts aren't going smoothly enough. Use a set until the wood just isn't responding the way it should, then replace the blade.
Hope that helped. Too many variables to get specific.
Will it fit on the full size tool?

BEST ANSWER: My wife uses this item and she on has the small tool.....So there for I don't know...

BEST ANSWER: Clean the cutter and then use a diamond sharpening tool on the flat side first and then on the beveled side. Not too much-just three or four swipes. Any more and you should turn the cutter to a new edge or replace it.
how do I know if I need an R2 or R1?
Guy S on Jul 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The R1 has a circular profile. The R2 is a rounded square. If one of these fits your tool the other will also, but they are used for different cutting.

C D on Aug 21, 2016
