When I'm teaching students to use a lathe, sharpening is one of the biggest hurdles to overcome.Like any woodworking tool, a sharp chisel is much easier and safer to use than a dull one.You just can't expect good cut quality, or an enjoyable turning experience, from a dull chisel.
Unfortunately, lots of turners struggle with sharpening.The new lathe chisels from Easy Wood Tools take sharpening lathe chisels out of the turning picture.Instead of a high speed or tool steel tip, the Easy Wood Tools lathe chisels have a replaceable carbide tip.
When it gets dull, simply reposition it to get a fresh edge on the tip.Once the entire cutting surface has been dulled, the tip gets replaced.Replacement tips cost from $14 to $18.The Easy Wood Tools can be used for bowl or spindle work, and are available with both square and round cutting tips.
I'll be 'test driving' these chisels soon, but I recently watched a group of brand new turners make pens using these chisels, and they worked great.No catches, great cuts, easy to use.You really can't ask for more from a lathe chisel.
