Over the last couple months I have been making some new Turning tools. I have only worked on them
when I have had spare time. Making this project seem as if it would never end. But I finally finished these ones today.
I have used only material I had in my shop up to this point. I do want to make a couple more, 1 of the detail tools the carbide is a slender diamond. The cutters I have used so far are replacement cutters for my planer, shaper, and a 4” X 4” high insert cutter I use on my shaper for template work.
These cutters are 14 X 14 mm, I used these cutters for both the square end tool, and also the one I made
set as a square diamond. The other insert cutter is 15 X 15 mm with a 4” radius.
I also made a roughing gouge, I used 1 1/4” steel pipe split down the middle with a tang cut on the end and inserted into the new handles.
The 3 I made with inserts I tried both square and round stock then ground a recess in the end for the cutters to set in and keep them from turning.
I really like the way the carbide insert cutters worked out and the Gouge is not bad either
Thanks for looking, Todd
