Handle Details: The most beautiful lathe tool handle on the market, 100% USA made by American craftsman. CNC machined from solid aircraft aluminum for balance, durability, and to last for years. Covered with a soft, comfortable foam rubber grip to reduce hand cramping during long turning sessions and for great tool control.

Benefits of Carbide Lathe Tools: Simple to use for all skill levels making woodturning fast and more enjoyable. You can focus on your project and not on techniques or sharpening. No long learning curve or expensive sharpening equipment. You can begin turning as soon as your box arrives because each tool comes with a very sharp, rotatable carbide cutter. Just rotate the cutter head ¼ turn for a clean, sharp edge and you are back to turning wood.
Full Size Tool Details: CNC machined from 1/2" square and 5/8" round stainless steel, making them stronger & stiffer. These full size tools feature an overall length of 12", with a handle tang of ½" diameter x 2½" length.
Tool Use: The Simple Shear Cutting Finisher (5/8" round) is a finishing tool that leaves an excellent surface finish so sanding is reduced to a minimum. Requires a bit of practice to master but is often the favorite tool of them all. The Simple Rougher (1/2" square) carbide tool makes roughing much simpler & less physical as most of the shock created by interrupted cuts is absorbed in the tool rest instead of your hands & arms. The Simple 55 Detailer (1/2" square) carbide tool that provides a much higher level of woodturning creativity.
*Note: All of these tools can be used in the Simple Hollowing System. Just loosen the two stainless set screws in each handle and remove the tool from the handle.
Tool Engraving: Each square Simple Woodturning Tool is engraved so you know exactly what tool you have. That makes finding replacement cutters very simple! Look for authentic Simple Woodturning Tool replacement cutters.
