Topic tags/keywords: tip question lathe turning

I utilize the ‘Easy Wood Tool’ turning tools and like them very much. One thing I would like, however, is a cutter that has a slight ‘inward’ facing radius (the opposite of the ‘outward’ radius one sold by Easy Wood).

Do any of you know of a brand of a cutting tool that fits this description? I’ve had no success in my surfing for one and am doubting its existence at this time…just thought I’d ask the fellow turners.

Thank you…

Scrub, I don’t think you’ll find anything like that in carbide, specifically fitting Easy Wood Tools. You could try Carbide Depot, and from there you should find other links to chase. You could also call EWT and ask if they can do a specieal grind. .......... Jerry (in Tucson)

I agree with Lew and recommend calling Cap’n Eddie (Castelin) for your replacement cutter heads. One thing I found on the Easy Finisher (round) tips I got from him is that they are a bit thinner than the original that came with the EWT. Also, the screws he supplies with his did not fit my EWT chisel. No problem on either issue – I just reused the original screw that came with the tool, and put a #10 washer under the new tip. They are super sharp and WAY less expensive than the ‘store brand’.

There is a guy on ebay who sells EWT carbides (the actual ones) for cheaper than I’ve seen anywhere else but I no longer have him bookmarked. They are still more expensive than Capn Eddie but a good deal if you want the exact same cutters.

ScrubLane, I have to ask, why do you want the reverse curve? What improvement over the square cutter would it give you?

www.knotsburls.com/kiliantools has excellent quality nanograde cutters at a very reasonable cost.

I am the seller and a professional turner.
