Product Description

#3 Hunter Hercules Handled 

 Suplied with a Carbide  # 3 10 mm cutter with 16 mm Square  shank 

This may be the last bowl / spindle gouge you will ever buy. There are two sizes: Unique Hunter design High quality carbide cutter 25 - 30 times longer edge life than other HSS tools

Aluminum oxide finish prevents rust

Does it seem like you spend more time sharpening that turning? If so, the Hunter #3 Hercules Tool, with its unique carbide cutter, is the answer you've been waiting for.

This new tool is easy to control and smooth cutting, making it perfect for beginners and a welcome addition for advanced turners.

When the cutting tip dulls, loosen and rotate it slightly to a new razor-sharp section; when the entire tip eventually dulls, simply replace it.

The high quality carbide cutter provides an edge life 25-30 times longer than HSS tools and requires no grinding or lapping.

An aluminum oxide finish on the tool holder prevents rust, and the strong metal shank minimizes vibration and chatter.

The Hunter #3 Hercules Tool is ideal for turning pens, lidded boxes, goblets, and other small diameter work because it removes wood quickly, efficiently and cleanly to minimize sanding. The 3/8"-diameter cutter is mounted on a 5-3/4" long, 5/8" diameter square shank; overall tool length is 22-3/4". Tip wrench and instructions included

Also available unhandled

#2 Hunter Osprey Handled

The Osprey has been designed to operate as a "super-gouge", equally at home doing the work of both the spindle gouge and the bowl gouge.  The advanced geometry of the tool tip enables the cutter to operate with all of the wood-eating qualities for which these tips are renowned, yet the supporting bevel, below the cutter, enables delicate control of the cut depth.  For whilst these cutters have a formidable appetite for material removal when set to the task, Mike Hunter knows that to be truly universal in operation as a gouge, they must be capable of making both precise and delicate cuts.  Flute clogging with these superb tools is non-existent - since there is no flute: the shavings flow freely from the cutter with no restriction in any direction.
The Osprey is a majestic, highly skilled yet elegant bird of prey: it seems only fitting that these brilliantly-conceived, highly versatile and superbly-executed tools should be named in tribute to such a fitting role model..

Also available un-handled
