Hurricane Standard Series Tools Info
We created our Standard Series of woodturning tools to meet the needs of beginning and intermediate woodturners who want quality High Speed Steel tools that are reasonably priced. Hurricane Turning Tools is our trademarked brand and are available only at The Woodturning Store. Our Standard Series tools are made from High Speed Steel to our specifications in one of the world's largest turning tool factories. They have outstanding edge holding ability and last 8 times longer between sharpening as compared to carbon steel. Each tool is heat treated to give excellent performance under the rigorous demands of woodturning and fitted with a beech handle, in lengths which are proper for the tool and application. Our bowl gouges and heavy scrapers have 16" handles. Smaller tools have handles from 10" to 14". Each handle is laser etched with the Hurricane logo. These tools arrive ready for final sharpening. We recommend our CBN grinding wheels, available in 80 and 180 grits. Many of our customers own several of the same type of tool and modify the shapes/grinds to suit their own variety of woodturning applications. Our Standard Series Tools are also sold in sets, which will help get you started if you are a new woodturner.
Hurricane Standard Series offers many different types of woodturning tools:
Scrapers remove much less material than gouges, and are often used to remove tool marks created by gouges. We offer several varieties in widths from 1/2" to 1 1/2" wide, in thicknesses from 1/4" to 3/8" for long reaches into bowls.
Scrapers are available in many shapes, including round, square, curved and for cutting dovetails in bowl bottoms.
Most woodturners have a wide selection of scrapers in their tool kits.
The standard series offers a Diamond Parting Tool. The diamond shape has a diamond cross section which allows for a reduction in friction of the tool against the sides of your workpiece.
