Robert Larson™ turning tools are manufactured to the highest quality. A wide variety of tools are available that will allow the best possible selection for the woodturner.
The Blades
The most important issue in a welldesigned turning tool is the quality of the blade. All Robert Larson™ blades are manufactured to precise specifications. The steel is M2 molybdenum based high speed steel which is machined from the solid in most cases. A few tools are entirely forged into shape. Next the tool is heat treated, being hardened and tempered to sixty-two degrees on the Rockwell "C" scale. By no means is this the end of the manufacturing process as the blades are next machine ground and, in a number of cases, hand ground as well. The cutting edge is carefully ground, with this being followed by hand glazing and polishing of the tool surface. Polishing is linear to the blade length, unlike other manufacturers that leave circular polishing markings on the blade. In the case of fluted tools, polishing is accomplished with specially shaped abrasive impregnated rubber wheels. A thorough quality inspection is made on each and every tool before it is proudly marked HSS Steel, Made in Sheffield England.
The Handles
While the blades may be the most important part of a woodturning tool, the handle can make a tremendous difference in the accuracy of your turning, as well as how long you can turn before getting tired. Robert Larson™ turning tool handles were designed in consultation with a leading woodturning company (established over a century ago) to provide both a firm as well as comfortable grip that will let you do your best work for hours on end! The handle starts with a blank of quality ash wood which is shaped into a unique style with beaded grips. While other manufacturers will apply a lacquer finish to the handle, our handles have an oil finish which provides a firmer grip. A solid brass sleeve is mounted on the front of the handle to strengthen the fitting of the blade tang into the handle. Each tool has been given the best size handle for the job.
Sets
A number of sets have been assembled to provide help in selecting the basic turning tools to begin your turning with. As you become more involved in turning simply add tools from the wide range available.
Options
If you are a woodturner that likes to "do-it-yourself" you will find that all of these quality tools are available unhandled! Choose your wood from commonly available hardwoods to exotic species to customize your woodturning tools by making your own handles. The brass sleeves we use on our handles are available as well. Another option is to handle your own tools, as replacement handles are also listed. Perhaps you would like all longer handles . . . no problem! You can also choose our sets in a kit form. These include blades, oil finished handles, brass sleeves, and an instruction leaflet. Handling is a small challenge that can also be a lot of fun.
Specifications
Each tool is listed with a part number, overall handle length, blade length without handle, and the cutting edge size.
Storage
Check out our tool roll and storage section for both leather and cloth turning tool rolls. These help protect and organize your investment in these fine tools.
