Description

Woodpeckers - Ultra-Shear Turning Tools - Full Size Detailer - If you love wood turning, but don’t have the time or expensive equipment necessary to constantly sharpen traditional tools, you need Woodpeckers Ultra-Shear carbide insert tools.  These tools eliminate the need for sharpening by using nano-grain carbide inserts mounted to induction-hardened alloy steel shafts. When the edge finally gets dull, simply rotate the cutter to a new edge. When all edges are dull, put on a new insert and get right back to your project. 

What makes Ultra-Shear different from all the rest?  The three most important differences are the grade and grind of the inserts, the design of the tool shaft and the material and treatment used in making the shaft.  Months of testing and trials produced Woodpeckers’ unique nano-grain carbide matrix, polished to a mirror-finish on the cutting surface and precision ground on the bevel, which makes Ultra-Shears the sharpest, longest lasting inserts on the market.
Carbide insert turning tools are typically used with the tool on the centreline of the lathe, held horizontal to the ground. Ultra-Shear tools use this approach for roughing and shaping cuts. But, Ultra-Shear goes further, after initial shaping, roll the tool right or left and you will feel the tool land on another bearing plane, 45° from horizontal. With the tool at this angle, the wood fibres slice cleanly, leaving a surface that needs little or no sanding. It’s a technique called shear scraping, which usually involves trying to balance your tool on a round surface or a sharp corner. Ultra-Shear’s geometry makes shear scraping a simple approach even beginners can use, instead of something that takes years to master. A truly sharp cutting edge needs rock solid support to give you the best results. Ultra-Shear tools feature the same ChroMoly alloy steel used in NASCAR racing car roll cages and crankshafts. CNC machines create the unique profile, then the shafts go through a two-step hardening process that makes the shaft rigid and creates an ultra-smooth surface finish that glides easily across your tool rest and resists corrosion. Tool measures 24" (610mm) overall length.
