Product Information:

Easy Wood Tool Mini’s - Easy wood has done it again! These mini tools feature all of the same benefits and qualities as their full size parents. The cutter’s are designed so that you do not have to “find the bevel” when turning. Simply advance the tool slowly into the work piece and begin cutting straight in, or sweep the cutter from left to right, or right to left. You will find these tools invaluable for those smaller more intricate turnings, such as pens, ornaments and smaller bowls, but they are ideal for roughing, finishing and detail work.


  • Great roughing tool for small work
  • Produce finish cuts
  • Uniquely designed carbide cutters
  • Easy grip handle

    Comments about Mid-Size Easy Rougher :

    I've been using the Easy Tools for nearly two years. There is a bit of a learning curve with all the Easy Tools, but I've not been that impressed with their "ease of use" advertisements. The main reason I've purchased so many of them is because of the replacement carbide cutters and their length options. I'm mobile for much of the year and don't want to drag my sharpening equipment along, therefore; when a tool gets dull, I either rotate the bit or replace it. You only need a couple of turning tools and lengths depending on your size projects. The basics for Easy Tools are simplicity and Easy Tool has applied that concept, however; the tools have a more limited application and you need to be wary of catches and gouges occurring, moreso with these tools than the HSS tools and their choice options. I've yet not enjoyed that clean cut as advertised. All my projects require significant sanding, even when the cutter is brand new. That translates into time and time is money. For that part, the various HSS tools do a better job and can be more easily navigated.

    I started using EWT when I first started turning they are great tools and they can take stock from square to finish, but now that I have started to use traditional tools I primarily use it as a scraper.

    Comments about Mid-Size Easy Rougher :

    I have some turning tools that I got when I purchased my lathe. I can't believe the difference between them. Even when the other tools were new, they probably won't be as good new as this tool would be a year from now. Great item.

    Comments about Mid-Size Easy Rougher :

    Just got sold on it...gave it a whirl with some rosewood and had my cub scout den learning to turn with it. EASY to use and control. I was told this was the " next generation" of turning tools... if thats the case ... it is a huge step. You can waste a lot of money trying to save a few bucks, buy these and don't look back, save space in the shop from no sharpeners, sharpening jigs, and a plethora of tools... 4-5 of these and maybe a few specialty tools will likely do 99% of the turning you will ever need/want to do. I know there is something to be said for the talent and skills of using the old style tools. But there was with being fast and accurate with muskets too. These are amazing gonna go get the finisher today methinks !!

    Wow and Wow. The price initally scared me, however, I would not do without it now. The cutting and finishing capabilities of these are awesome. I bought the Round Finisher as well and am completely happy. Great for Mini, Small Medium and Big projects.

    I started using this tool right out of the box. There was no steep learning curve. Now I have to have the other tools in the series. Turners take noted. You spend your time turning not sharpening.
