Make turning a little easier and a lot more fun with Crowns exclusive Pro-PM Powder Metallurgy High Speed Steel Spindle Gouge! This gouge is the "elite' of all turning gouges. Made from an advanced Powder Metal, the molten steel has been compressed and sintered giving this Pro-PM turning tool a cutting edge which lasts up to four/five times that of a conventional High Speed Steel tool. The chisel is hardened to between 66° and 68° Rockwell, enabling it to have a vastly superior wear resistance, excellent grinability, superior toughness, a high working hardness and a high retention of hardness. The ergonomically designed stained black ash handle makes the finished chisel unbeatable.Technical Details:From Crowns exclusive Pro-PM Powder Metallurgy High Speed Steel tool lineMade from an advanced Powder MetalMolten steel is compressed and sintered giving this Pro-PM turning tool a cutting edge which lasts up to four/five times that of a conventional High Speed Steel toolChisel is hardened to between 66° and 68° Rockwell, enabling it to have a vastly superior wear resistance, excellent grinability, superior toughness, a high working hardness and a high retention of hardnessErgonomically designed stained black ash handle
Carter's MultiRest provides three strong, helping hands for the most challenging of turnings: big bowls, long vessels, and narrow spindles. Slide the support wheels up against your turning project and flip on the lathe to enjoy unequaled stability and whisper-quiet operation. Each ball-bearing roller assembly can be positioned anywhere around the ring, and adjusted along multiple planes for a wide range of lathe sizes and part diameters. The 2-piece clam shell design quickly swings open, providing easy access when mounting or removing turnings, or when sanding or performing other secondary operations. With the larger ring section removed, the remaining smaller section becomes a bowl rest, providing solid support behind the work piece, yet fully exposing the opposite side of the piece for turning. Made in USA.Technical Details:Compatible with lathe swing sizes from mini up to 20" with no additional hardware required.With purchase of the 2" Lift Blocks (49120, sold separately below), the Multi-Rest can be used on even larger lathes.The base of the MultiRest has independently adjustable spacer blocks that provide a secure fit on lathe beds with way sizes from 1" to 4.5" in width.Multi-ring structure creates great rigidity while keeping the tool's weight to half that of a comparable full steel rest.High strength, laser cut steel and aircraft grade aluminum components assure the ultimate in strength and durability.Each of the MultiRest's bearing mounted, non-marring urethane wheels have a rigid internal ring to prevent sidewall flexThe MultiRest uses the same high strength industrial sealed bearings used in our time tested bandsaw upgrade guides, so they're not your typical skate wheel and bearing.The unit comes stock with 3 wheel assemblies, which is perfect for most tasks.Wheel assemblies can be positioned anywhere around the ring.Patent pending.Made in USA by the same folks who created the famous Carter band saw guides.
The iVac Pro system eliminates the inconvenience of having to walk across the shop to turn on your dust collection system before operating a power tool. It also eliminates the chance that you will simply forego the dust collector to save a bit of time. Simply turn on your power tool and the Pro Tool Plus sends a wireless signal up to 40' to the Pro Switch (sold separately), which then powers up your dust collection system. Turn off your power tool, and the dust collector powers down. Here's how it works. The Pro Tool Plus is physically secured to the power cord of your power tool, and determines whether the tool is on or off by sensing the magnetic field surrounding the cord. Now plug your dust collection system into a Pro Switch (sold separately). In Auto Mode, when the power tool is turned on, the Tool Plus transmits a digital wireless signal to the Pro Switch instructing it to turn on and apply power to the Dust Collector. You can add a Pro Tool Plus to every tool that you want to have this capability. One Pro Switch can accommodate up to 8 Pro Tools, as long as they are within the 40' radio frequency range. You can even program your Pro Switch to run a little longer than your tool to allow for dust clearance. Get started today by selecting a Pro Switch in 240V or 115V and adding up to 8 Pro Tool Plus units. NOTE: IVac Pro System Boxes are built to handle the amperage advertised, however, both the UL (American) and CSA (Canadian) safety approval agencies require the boxes to be labeled at 80% of their actual amperage capacity due to the fact that the units have an attached power supply cord. Example - The 115 Volt / 20 Amp box is labeled as only 16 amps, however the box will actually continuously handle 20 amp AC mains. Automatically turns your dust collection system on or offWirelessly connect up to eight iVac Pro Tool Plus units (each sold separately) to an iVac Pro Switch for multi-tool coverageRun two or more power tools at the same time without interference (turning off one tool won't turn your dust collection system off if another tool is still runningTurn on delay helps avoid power surges from dust collector and power tool turning on at the same timeThree-position mode switch: Auto/Off/On40' line-of-sight range between the iVac Pro Switch and iVac Pro Tool Plus
