Easy Wood Tools start sharp and stay sharp
Craig Jackson was already a highly experienced machinist and metallurgist when he happened to
discover a love for woodturning back in 2001. Frustrated with the need to constantly resharpen
conventional turning tools as well as climb the learning curve necessary to use them effectively, he
applied his extensive knowledge and creativity to create a new kind of turning tool that everybody
agrees is easier to use.
Using replaceable carbide custom cutters that are hardened to Rockwell 93 hardness and machined with
carefully designed bevel angles, Craig's tools make it incredibly easy to present an extremely sharp
edge to a turning workpiece in a safe and effective manner. When one edge of the carbide cutter
eventually becomes dull, the turner need only loosen a screw and rotate the cutter to a fresh sharp
edge, then resume, saving the constant fuss and expense of machine sharpening. When all edges of a
cutter have been consumed, the carbide cutter can be replaced for under $15.
NEW Easy Wood Tools 1/8" Easy Parting Tool
Easy Wood Tools has built some nice innovations into their new 1/8" parting tool. At the
cutting end the tool body slims down to 3/32" and holds an 1/8" cutting tip. The narrow
cutter helps you save material and part in very tight spaces. You can part up to 4" deep
with only a 1/8" part width. The heavy tool body virtually eliminates chatter and
vibration in most cuts. The solid carbide tip will stay sharp a long time. When it finally
gets dull, it's easy to replace.
