Carbide Wood Lathe Tools

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

All this talk about Carbide Wood Lathe Tools I thought I needed

to try one. Prices are high so i made my own. I used 4140 tool

steel for the shaft. I almost messed up when milling the flat.

The steel started to work hard from the heat of the mill. The

mill made the cut but drilling and taping was tough. Ash handle

with brass ferrule. I have 100's of different carbide tips to try.

I snapped the first tip when I tightened the screw. I then put

a brass washer under the screw and that seemed to fix that

problem. It's not been tested yet. I'll keep you up to date.

Those type of bits usually have straighter sides.  I wonder if that would make them better to ride a bevel for  shear cut?  Nice job making it. 

If it doesn't cut good I have diamond grinding wheels.

I will keep changing the profile until it works good.

I sharpen all my saw blades, chisels, drill bits and all...

Thanks... I did not know that...

 

The ferrells was made from heavy wall 1" brass pipe. 

Pressed fit also smeared with JB-weld.

The cutter rods was also pressed in the wood handle 

and smeared with JB-weld.

 

I can see what your talking about in this image...

 I made my own carbide tool also. I used an old carbide tipped saw blade. I cut off a couple of teeth with a grinder, leaving enough of the steel blade to attach to a handle. Yes it did work, however the angle and size of the tooth limited the use. It was a fun project, but no so successful for me.

I read your link or I think it was you. You made a parting tool. Yes?

This is what I did . Drill the end of the curved portion and get carbide bar stock. Cut off about 1.5 inches and use super glue to mount in the hole.  To change bits just torch the end and glue will release. This will cut faster than oll the Easy tools , you will not believe it.

   Let me know if you want a picture.
