Crown Carbide Pro turning tools are the result of a long time spent in design, research and testing. These premium quality tools fulfil the expectations of the professional woodturner.
At the business end is a solid tungsten carbide cutter, sourced from a well-respected manufacturer in the USA. The tips are made from the finest nano-particle carbide that is hardened to an unbelievable 93 HRC; this makes them ultra long lasting and, when the edge eventually dulls, all you need do is turn the cutter to a fresh sharp cutting edge. The Roughing Tip tool features a 15mm square cutting tip, each side having a very slight radius. It can remove quite a lot of material quickly. On the other hand it is more than capable of delicate refining cuts, flat or at a shear angle.
Crown Carbide Pro turning tools are highly efficient when turning wood and are very effective when turning acrylic, polyester and resin. The tools have good heft and mass; the 20mm x 13mm shafts are super tough, made from chrome vanadium steel, which helps smother vibration. The weight keeps the tool on the tool's rest and, combined with a 355mm long handle, ensures effortless control. In use, the tools work best when flat and level, cutting at centre height or, with the handle slightly raised, cutting just below centre. The sides of the bar have a gentle radius allowing controlled shear cuts.
Each tool comes with a hex key and spare machine screws.
