M2-HSS Cryogenic woodturning tools
Improved edge life and sharpness without compromising on sharpening: Cryogenic hardening is a technically elaborate process, in which the steel is cooled down, computer-controlled, to -185 °C after hardening. After this treatment, the steel has finer carbides that cannot develop during the usual hardening process. This results in excellent properties such as a longer service life than with conventional hardening, a fine cutting edge with reduced burr formation and easier sharpening. Come with ready-to-use bevel and black stained ash handles. Approx. 62 HRC.
M42-HSS Cryogenic Turning Tools - made of an extra-hard HSS-cobalt alloy
Extremely long service life and razor-sharp cutting edges: Originally developed to meet the requirements of metal processing, M42 Steel cuts even exotic hardwood or composite materials effortlessly. The steel provides an exceptionally long service life thanks to the addition of 10% cobalt as well as the cryogenic treatment it undergoes at -185°C during the tempering process. This causes fine carbides to form, which help increase the service life and sharpenability of the steel long-term. Come with ready-to-use bevel and black stained ash handles. Approx. 65 HRC.
PRO-PM woodturning tools - made of ultra hard sintered steel
The ultimate turning tools: PRO-PM gouges are the top of the line for exotic hardwoods, laminates or wood with mineral inclusions. The alloying of steels has its limits due to their different melting points. During sintering, a new type of steel is created from powder steel under the influence of high temperature and pressure, which would not be miscible in the liquid state. The very high percentage of cobalt (8 %) and tungsten (10.5 %) make them highly durable. The tools hold their edge at least five times longer than conventional HSS tools. Come with ready-to-use bevel and black stained ash handles. Approx. 62 HRC.
Hand-forging and high-grade steels make Crown Tools one of the leading manufacturers of turning tools worldwide. All of their tools are made in Sheffield, England, following a long tradition. The blades are made of ultra-edge-retaining M2-HSS as well as M42-HSS and PRO-PM steel for heavy-duty use and ultimate edge life.
