Easy wood turning on your lathe with Savannah Carbide Turning tools. We all know how “enjoyable” sharpening our turning tools can be. We also know that if you don’t have the tool at just the right angle when turning, the results can be undesirable. With the Savannah Carbide Mini Turning Tool Set you’ll eliminate the inconvenience of sharpening your turning tools and with the flat bottom bars on each tool you’ll be able to easily turn most any type of project!
When the carbide cutter on the tool after all dulls, simply loosen the cutter screw, rotate the tip and protected the screw for a fresh, clean cutting edge. Carbide cutters will stay sharper longer when compared to standard turning tools. On the other hand, once needed, the cutters are replaceable. This set includes 2 of each cutter style and extra screws.
Unlike standard wood turning tools, when the usage of carbide tipped cutters, you keep the cutter straight in on the object you are turning. This produces a shearing action as opposed to the traditional cutting method of standard turning tools. The shearing action of this sort of turning produces much cleaner cuts and is easier than the usage of standard turning tools.
Each mini turning tool has a Flush Fit Comfort Grip handle. Each handle is approx. 9-1/8″ long and has a heavy duty steel ferrule for added strength and fortify. The steel ferrule is riveted to the handle. Each turning tool steel bar is approx. 3¾” long. The set includes 1 ea. round tool, 1 ea. 4 inch radius square tool, 1 ea. diamond shaped tool, 2 ea. round carbide cutters, 2 ea. 4″ radius square carbide cutters, 2 ea. diamond shaped carbide cutters, 5 ea. screws (for securing cutters) and 2 ea. hex key wrenches.
Also included with this set is a thick, heavy duty carrying case with a removable foam tray liner. The tray is pre-cut so the turning tools neatly fit into the tray to keep them from sliding around. The tray can be removed so the carrying case can be repurposed for any type of tool or accessory storage you choose. The set comes with basic carbide turning tool instructions.
The basic thought process to help produce consistent, prime quality cuts is to use one cutter on your tool for all the roughing out or hogging out of material and use a second cutter dedicated to finishing cuts only. This will substantially prolong the life of your finishing cutter.
Take your time and significantly slow down the rate of movement across the surface of the wood. This will give the cutter more time to make cleaner, smoother cuts. Take into account that; the slower your shuttle the tool, the cleaner and smoother the final cut will be. Forcing the tool into your stock will not produce optimal results
Whenever its time to replace a cutter we recommend that you lightly grease the threads on the socket screw. Any type of machine grease will work to help keep it lubricated.
