These are the workhorses of spindle turning and one of the first tools a turner must master. The available range of sizes is quite broad and the tools have the classic Ashley heft and fit and finish. All the tools come with a 35 degree grinding angle and a round cutting edge that can be ground to a fingernail profile.
Except where noted all tools are made of high speed steel (HSS) and are sold handled. Tony Iles hand finishes each and every turning tool himself and is proud that every tool is shipped with its surfaces ground and edges broken. These are tools that will feel wonderful in the hand, with a heft makes them feel very solid - a real aid in turning. All the tools are shipped sharp and ready to use, although we fully expect many of you to customize the grinds to your particular working methods.
