AZCarbide carbide cutters for lathe tools


  • AZCarbide carbide cutters for lathe tools

    I purchased some carbide cutters from AZCarbide ( to mount onto the lathe tools I made, including a 15mm 4inch radius (#RA4), a 14x28mm diamond (#DIA14), a 14mm square (#SQ14), and 16mm round (#RD15).

    I can't say enough good things about Dale Guilford, the proprietor, and his helpfulness. He sent an email to confirm the order, and responded in short order to some questions I had.

    The cutters were shipped flat rate for $2, and I received them in just a couple days. They were carefully packed in the shipping envelope, and came with mounting screws. They were very reasonably priced, some at half the price of my local woodworking stores.

    The high quality of the cutters is event from the moment you see them. Excellent grind and polish. I mounted them into my tools, and tried the R4 and round cutters to shape some tool handles, and they cut quality was excellent. These tools will take a lead role in my turning henceforth. And I will definitely be ordering from Dale again.

    Dale also offers a discount of 10% for group orders of 20 pieces or more.

    • A Review of the Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence
      by twistsol
      Over the years, Iíve had multiple router tables. Everything from a small aluminum Craftsman benchtop model, to the router mount on my BT3000, to a custom built version in my old ultimate tool stand and another custom built one in the wide table of my saw. In every case there was something missing or just not quite up to par. The Sommerfeld table and fence change all that and meet nearly all my criteria....

      by twistsol
      The setup for both bits in the set took some time to get right, but once set up properly the bits made mostly clean cuts. The reasoning behind the bearing placement on the bit set escapes me but all in all, the set performed well and functioned as advertised. ...

    • FlashCell cordless battery-less power screwdriver Review
      by LCHIEN
      I have owned a Coleman Flashcell screwdriver since about 2009. it does not replace the drill driver (Craftsman 19.2V C3 drill driver with lithium ion cells and clutch) but it replaces small powered screwdrivers for doing repetitive screw driving. The no longer sell them and haven't for several years. I've been wanting one to have handy in the garage shop or house rather than running back and forth.

      The advantage of a cordless, batteryless driver is that it uses a supercapacitor to drive...

    • HF Silver & Deming Drill Bits
      by Bill in Buena Park
      In a recent shop project to make a lathe chuck / center organizer, I needed to drill some holes to accommodate the MT2 shanks of my live centers and drill chucks. For my purposes (a nice snug fit at a certain height), I needed 11/16 holes. None of my forstner bits (also HF) were this size. For some threaded spur center inserts, I needed 9/16 holes. No love there among the forstners either.

      So I found this set of the Silver and Deming bits at HF:

    • Dremel vac operated Rotary tool
      by LCHIEN
      I saw this and Lowes has it for $30 and for some reason Amazon has it for $44, so I bought on a whim but its not a winner. The promise was a rotary tool and vacuum tool that cleared the debris as say you were engraving or grinding. It has the blue ring you turn to adjust that allows some vacuum to bypass and thus control speed. It has a few accessories and a clear guide for flat work. It fits most all dremel bits that are 1/8" diameter shank. In reality the RPMs were low (I measured 15,000 with...

    • 3M Prograde Precision flexible sanding sheets
      by sailor55330
      I gave this a shot from a local retailer the other day The product itself seems very well made. The abrasive is tight to the backing and shows no sign of flaking off as others do. I used 320 and found it to cut very well. I would actually say the 320 cut better than the red Diablo 220g from the BORG. The actual back...
