Hunter Carbide turning tools are ideal for use on wood and stone. They work best on close grain woods. A benefit on most Hunter Carbide turning tools is a replaceable blade which eliminates the need to purchase an entirely new tool. Hunter offers carbide cutting tools and carbide hollowing tools.

Cutting Tools

Hunter offers several cutting tools with carbide tips. The tools include #3 and #4 Hunter tool cutter, #2 skew right and a #2-0.094 cut-off right. A patent is pending on two new Hunter Tool cutters that are not yet on the market. Each tool provides a smooth cut that eliminates extensive finish time once the item is completed. The #3 and #4 round tools use is similar to a scraper. The tools are set at a 45 degree angle. Use these tools to do rough cuts and finish the interior of bowls. The #2 skew right is good for bowls, boxes, coops and goblets.

Hollowing Tools

Hunter offers hollowing tools with carbide bits. The #3 gouge or turning tool has a 3/8 inch diameter. The #4 gouge or turning tool has a 1/2 inch diameter. The #5 gouge has a 5/8 inch shank that tapers to 3/8-inch. Both gouges work for rough turning and finish turning. The gouges remove wood quickly. The finish is smooth and requires little sanding prior to completing the turning. The small diameter #3 gouge is the perfect size to hollow pens, goblets, lidded boxes and other small turnings.

The #1 cutter RH has a 3/16 by 3/16 inch square shank and the #1 Cutter RH has a 3/16 inch round shank. The smaller cutting wheels on these two Hunter Carbide tools provide manoeuvring in small tight locations.

Hook Tools

Hunter Tool Company has hook hollowing tools available. The #1 cup hook hollowing tool has a 1/4 inch shank that provides access to hard-to-reach locations such as inside a Christmas tree ornament. The tool may be purchased with a handle or without. The Hunter swan neck tool is hooked to hollow turnings that have a bulged centre. This tool is used for final form shaping.

Replacement Ends

Hunter offers replacement ends and tips for the cutting, hollowing and hook carbide cutters.
