Product Information:

Model HCT 30A. The newest advancement in woodcarving technology! The Handcraft Carver is rugged and reliable. Aluminum die-cast body is light and vibration free. Special reciprocating action of the cutter head carves through the toughest woods with just simple hand direction. Greater pressure causes a deeper cut. For safety, free-floating action keeps blades motionless until pressed against wood. The laminated blades move at 10,000 vibrations per minute, leaving a smooth cut surface. Carvers appreciate the versatility in portability and movement, as well as accuracy and speed. A powerful 80-watt ball bearing motor delivers 10,000 vibrations per minute for 1mm cutting strokes. Includes 6' grounded cord, rear on/off switch, hanger, five blades, two spanner wrenches, and complete instructions for use. Body measures 228mm (9") long x 44mm (1-3/4") diameter, 990 grams (2 lbs.) in weight. UL listed.

    Comments about Automach Power Carver :

    Have not used it enough to experience cons yet. For my arthritic thumbs, this is a godsend. Friendlier and more precise than a disc type carver - more delicate cuts and easier to manipulate - and even more accurate than other micro carvers. No air-compression equipment needed. Very useful quality tool. Good for turnings and planar work.

    Great for roughing out but if you go slow it isn't too bad for finish cuts. I do however wish there were more of a variety of cutting tips.

    Comments about Automach Power Carver :

    I ordered this for my father who has been carving for years. He absolutely loved it and liked how it handled. He said it was easy to use. The bits that come with it, don't allow him to do some of the intricate detail he would like, but they are available for purchase. He absolutely loves it. I ordered it on 12/23, and Woodcrafters had it delivered on 12/24. How awesome is that?!

    Comments about Automach Power Carver :

    I already had two carvers (a Ryobi DC500 and a no-name Chinese one) and my son just brought me this one from the Woodcraft store in Orlando, FL. It is by far the best! Lightweight metal casing (when was the last time you saw a power tool not made of plastic?), smooth running motor, pre-sharpened blades that can be put to use right out of the box, a pleasure to work with. It is worth every dollar.

    I have created some really fine sculptures with this tool. I formerly did all carvving by hand, but with the carver I can create better, larger projects much quicker and do a better job.

    I used the carver as a gouge for carving spoon bowls in very dense woods (ipe, jatoba, massaranduba) and it performed very well.
