Usage and safety information:
These tools come with replaceable carbide cutters. Simply rotate the cutter when one side gets dull. When you've used all the sides, just replace with a new cutter or use a Trend diamond sharpening stone with lapping fluid to sharpen. Do not use dull cutters – not only will the tool not work properly, but it can also be a safety hazard.
Set tool rest height so the top of the cutter aligns with the centre of the spindle.
Hold the tool flat on the tool rest and parallel to the floor.
Don’t force the tool to cut. Light, slow cuts work best. These tools are very sharp and can dig into the blank if too much pressure is applied.
Make sure the blank you are working on is secured properly and tightly.
Wear safe and protective clothing as well as safety glasses and/or a face shield and use a dust mask when necessary.
Read and understand your lathe’s owner’s manual.
