Detailed Description

Carter Axe Hybrid Size Carbide Turning Tools

Carter Axe Hybrid Carbide Turning Tools features carbide bits and is a new size Carter calls the Hybrid™. The Hybrid™ line has many of the tool bar size advantages to a smaller mini size tool, while retaining a fuller sized midi handle to give added functionality while not sacrificing any control from a too small handle. All shafts still feature the same great functions of the full size AXE™ but in a smaller package. The bits on all but the Diamond shape are a smaller size to go along with the smaller shafts. Each tool is a stand-alone tool complete and ready to cut right out of the box.

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.

Measurements: 19" overall length, 6" toolbar length, 13" handle length. The bar is full stainless steel for corrosion resistance. They are made in Grand Rapids, Michigan and handles are solid hard maple, sourced and machined also in the USA.

Included: Free 2nd Cutter!
