Detailed Description

Carter Axe Carbide Full Size Turning Tools

The AXE™ by Carter Products® is a high quality carbide turning tool, with replaceable cutters, complete and ready to cut right out of the box. Measurements: 24-1/2" overall length, 8-1/8" toolbar length, 16-3/8" handle length

The first departure from traditional woodturning tools is the handle with its flat sides and angled rear. The tapper and flats on the rear not only allow for a more comfortable grip, but in the round and square tool they allow for positive angle registration when sheer cutting with the tool slightly angled. To facilitate the transition of angled cutting, both the round and square tipped tools have flat bases with slightly radius edges to allow smooth flowing movement from flat to angled. The diamond tool, which is not intended to be used at an angle, is completely flat on the base. So, when you combine the enhanced control and comfort handle with the radius edge bars Carter has set a new standard in carbide tools.

The next feature is the quick identification feature they incorporated into the ferrule of the handle. Tools with a gold ferrule will be a detail tool. Any tool with a red ferrule will be a round tool and any tool with a blue ferrule will be a square tool (the square tool comes with both the square and square radius cutters.) This way, at a moment's glance to the tool rest, the correct tool can be found every time. As Carter Products® adds other shapes or cutters, new colors will follow but remain consistent within the entire AXE™ line.

The bar is full stainless steel for corrosion resistance and unlike some tools it is over built with the main bar inserted into the handle a full 5" for added strength and long term durability. They are made in Grand Rapids, Michigan and handles are solid hard maple, sourced and machined also in the USA.

Included: Free 2nd Cutter!
