What is the Hunter Tool?
The Hunter Tool uses a very fine grain of carbide specifically engineered to meet the sharp tooling requirements demanded by the woodturning community. While proficient in rough turning operations, Hunter Tools excel best when used as a finishing tool for final shaping and the light finish cuts. Often the tedious sanding operations are either eliminated or greatly reduced.
The heart of the Hunter Tool is a circular structured carbide cutter that lasts up to 100 times longer than similar high-speed steel cutters. The Hunter Cutter does not require sharpening; when dull, simply rotate the cutter to a new cutting edge. When the cutter is rotated all 360 degrees, then simply replace the cutter with a new tip.
Woodturners have not seen any revolutionary tools available in the woodturning market. For the past 300 years or more, they have been using high-speed steel tooling. With today’s newer, more stable and faster machines, Hunter Tool Company is providing the tools needed to enhance the woodturners tool selection.
The Hunter carbide lathe tools can be ordered either with a wood turned wood handle or without handles. The manufactured handles are very popular and all of the carbide lathe tools have standard shanks to fit these readily available handles. The Hunter carbide lathe tools are very popular with the captured hollowing systems and will retrofit into most of the popular systems.
