Skew chisel's are used for convex, conical and cylindrical features in spindle turning.


They are also used for cleaning up end grain and "V" cutting.

Made from M2 High Speed Steel.

High Speed Steel is superior to the older high-carbon steel tools used extensively through the 1940s in that it can withstand higher temperatures without losing its temper (hardness). This property allows HSS to cut faster than high carbon steel, hence the name high-speed steel.


M2 is molybdenum based high-speed steel in tungsten–molybdenum series. The carbides in it are small and evenly distributed. It has high wear resistance.
