Innovation that others follow...
The quest for well-designed wood turning tools that make turning easier is the driving force behind D-Way Tools. D-Way Tools were designed by a world-class turner for turners, in the belief that good tools make the craft easier and more enjoyable.
D-Way woodturning tools are machined from premium M-42 cobalt high speed steel - chosen for its superior wear resistance and edge holding qualities. Heat treating is accomplished with nitrogen in a vacuum chamber to prevent contamination. The steel is then triple tempered to achieve a hardness of 64 – 66 HRC, yielding a hard (but not brittle) material. The result is an very durable edge that retains its sharpness. All flutes are individually inspected and hand polished to remove machine marks. This extra step assures the sharpest cutting edge and smooth removal of shavings. All tools are shipped sharp and ready to make shavings.
What they’re saying about D-Way Tools...
"D-Way Tools have earned their place in my woodturning tool arsenal! These tools are the perfect combination of durability and sharpen-ability, allowing me to hone all edges to razor sharp, raise a hook on my scrapers, or just simply use straight from the grinder. I have seen D-Way Tools evolve from their beginning and have absolutely everything positive to say about the quality, craftsmanship and user-friendly designs! These American-made tools have continued to impress me and are the clear choice for partnering to create my E. Lofstrom signature tool series. As a professional woodturning instructor and demonstrator I have yet to find a tool line that compares. D-Way Tools are the highest caliber turning tool available!" - Eric Lofstrom
"I have been using the wheels all week. These are the very best I have ever used. They are incredibly well balanced and 100% thru. The 80 grit reshapes tools so quickly with no clogging or dressing up. The 180 grit gives a superb cutting edge. I have over 60 tools to sharpen before a Masterclass and now can do it in record time. No over heating of tools or frequent changing of wheels. Worth every penny." - Glenn Lucas
"AWESOME tools!!! Absolutely the best. The bowl gouge has made getting through the death curve of a bowl an accomplishable task for me now, and the heft of the skew greatly improves my confidence..." - Steve & Trudy Webb
“My first purchase of the D-Way 3/8" bowl gouge convinced me that the steel that Dave uses is superior to all others I have tried. It takes a sharp edge and keeps its sharpness much better than any others on the market… They are simply the best!” - Jim Christiansen
