EWT Micro Turning Tools

In its continuing efforts to make woodturning easier and more accessible, Easy Wood Tools has just added three new Micro Turning Tools to its catalog of carbide insert options. These smaller versions of the company’s full-size tools can help you gain more control for finer cutting applications. The Easy Micro Rougher® (item 12006) has a four-edged square carbide cutter, the Easy Micro Finisher® (item 12011) has a round carbide cutter, and there’s a diamond-shaped cutter on the Easy Micro Detailer® (item 12007). All three tools have 6-in. maple handles and 3-1/4-in.-long, 5/16-in.-thick steel tool bars. Individually, they sell for $79.99. Or, you can purchase all three in a set (item 12021; $239.99) that comes packed in a foam-lined plastic tool case. The kit also includes an extra Ci6 1-in.-radius cutter. Replacement cutters for Micro Turning Tools are also available, in prices ranging from $13.99 to $18.99. Click here to learn more.

    Pretty overpriced for factory produced turning tools. It’s ok if you’re willing to pay a lot to get to work right away, although it’s easy to make your own. I got my first 3 small size tools at a 50% off sale, and that was reasonable compared to my time to make them. I love the way the carbide cutters work. But – the replacement cutters are standard issue – available many places for 20-30% the branded price. Google and Amazon are your friends. If you want micro ones like this, then make the handles and buy a set of carbide tipped 5″ long tools made for metal lathes and epoxy into your own handles. You can get a wider variety of types of tips, too.
