    Smile Carbide tools for wood lathe

    Carbide Lathe Tools - by Rick M. @ ~ woodworking community

    Maple handles, 1/2 steel round bar, copper ferrule, carbide cutters.
    Maple handles sanded to 320 and finished with shellac.
    Copper sanded to 2000, buffed, then sprayed with shellac.
    Cost was around $11 each.
    Next time I will use aluminum square bar instead of steel round bar.

    These cut better than my EWT's.
