Turning has become quite a growing art with new and different innovations hitting the market in recent years. It is an art that dates back to around 1300 BC when a two-person lathe was developed by the Egyptians. One person would turn the wood with a rope while the other used a sharp tool to cut shapes in the wood. I guess you could say we’ve come a long way in technology. But with the decline of industrial arts programs in our schools, the education of hands-on woodshop activity has seemingly been left to one organization which has taken on the responsibility of making sure the art of woodturning lives on. That organization is the American Association of Woodtuners (AAW). This organization is an international, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with over 15,000 members in the United States and throughout 33 different countries with 350 AAW Chapters. These chapters are independent organizations of local enthusiasts who come together to learn more about the craft and enjoy fellowship with other turners. Their voluntary mission is to provide education, information, and organization to those interested in the art and craft of woodturning.

Great tool, I have been strugeling with sharpening issues long enough!!!!! I now own several "Carbide" tools and will never go back.... I know that old habbets never die, but try one and you will see what I mean... This tool allows you to ride the bevel and lift to desired cut rate. I can not say enough.... TRY ONE
I wish I had known about it earlier I would not have spent a lot of money on HSS items.
Great tool only thing is if you dont keep it 95% square to the workpiece it will start to catch and dig into the wood.
I am in between a beginner and a novice at turning. I have done about 20 pens with both acrylic and wood and love this tool. My wife got it for me because the worker at Woodcraft recommended it. At first I was unsure because I thought it was just the guy selling a tool to an unknowing person. I was wrong! It is very smooth and does a great job from roughing out to finishing. I love that you can loosen the blade and rotate it around when one end gets dull. I am not sure how it will work on large turning projects.
I would buy again
Great for small turning
