  4. Ultra-Shear Square Carbide Insert Tools

    Reach for an Ultra-Shear Square Tool anytime you’re shaping an outside curve. That would include the outside of a bowl, the cup of a goblet, or beads in spindle work. It’s also your “go-to” for roughing stock down from square to round. There are three sizes available.  The Full and Mid-Size use the same inserts and the Pen Size uses smaller inserts. If you’re turning bowls and furniture components, the Full-Size is your best choice. The Mid-Size is a great choice if you turn pizza cutters, duck calls, shaving brushes and other palm-sized projects. The Pen Size tools are the right choice for pens, lace bobbins, finials and other fine, delicate work.

  5. Ultra-Shear Round Carbide Insert Tools



    Ultra-Shear Round Tools cut inside curves. For example, the inside of a bowl or a cove in a spindle. By sweeping the tool in an arc you can create any inside curve from a minimum of the size of the insert up to the shallow…nearly flat…shape of a serving platter. There are three sizes available.  The Full and Mid-Size use the same inserts and the Pen Size uses smaller inserts. If you’re turning bowls and furniture components, the Full-Size is your best choice. The Mid-Size is a great choice if you turn pizza cutters, duck calls, shaving brushes and other palm-sized projects. The Pen Size tools are the right choice for pens, lace bobbins, finials and other fine, delicate work.

  7. Ultra-Shear Pen Mandrel System and Precision Pen Turning Bushings
    If you’ve turned more than a couple pens, you’ve probably noticed that there’s just not much material left on top of the brass tube when you get finished. Any amount of misalignment can show up as brass showing through acrylic or even worse, a complete blow-out. None of the mandrels available on the market today seem to help matters much, until now. Introducing the Ultra-Shear Pen Mandrel System. Each component is designed and manufactured with one goal…keeping your pen perfectly centered on your lathe.  Mandrel utilizes a #2 morse taper.

  8. Ultra Shear Parting Tool Ci

    Crisp, Clean, Narrow Parting Cuts -- Ultra-Shear’s New Parting Tool Ci. 

    Woodturners love narrow parting tools because they allow you to get more turning from less stock, they cut with less resistance and they open up other design options (like the grooves of a honey dipper). The problem is, the thinner parting tools get, the harder they are to sharpen. Get the end just a little out of square and the tool won’t cut straight. If the edges get a little rounded over, you’ll get tear-out at the entry point. The Ultra-Shear Parting Tool Ci changes all that by eliminating sharpening altogether. Instead, the cutting edge is a nano-grain carbide insert, ground on computerized equipment, polished to a razor-like edge and replaceable in seconds. Learn More

  9. Ultra-Shear Pen Mill Ci – Carbide Inserts for Amazing Tool Life and Cleaner Cuts


    Creating beautiful turned pens starts with carefully preparing the turning blank. Every pen kit on the market includes a brass insert tube that has to be glued into the blank. Then the blank needs to be trimmed perpendicular to and perfectly flush with both ends of the insert tube. The trimming process is fundamentally important to great results, but until now, the tools available to pen turners for that job have left a lot to be desired. Now Woodpeckers is introducing the Ultra-Shear Pen Mill Ci, a pen mill that effortlessly cuts every material pen turners use…and through mountains of pen blanks.

  10. Ultra-Shear - Center Finders
    Most turning projects start by finding center on at least one end of the work piece. One of the easiest ways to accomplish that is with a center finder. Woodpeckers uniquely designed and constructed center finder is ideal for this task. In seconds you'll know exactly where the dead center of your work piece is at. It works equally well on round or square stock and it's stainless steel construction makes in virtually indestructable and compatible with any marking device including sharp pencils or knives.

Turning Tools and Accessories Featuring World’s Sharpest, Longest-Lasting Carbide Inserts

Of all the woodworking directions you can take, only woodturning allows you to take one piece of wood and create a stunning finished project in a matter of hours, not days or weeks. Imagine going into your shop after work and finishing a family heirloom before bedtime.

However, before Ultra-Shear tools, woodturning’s “dirty little secret” had always been that tool technique and tool sharpening needed to be mastered before you could get the results you want. Now, with Ultra-Shear, two simple techniques move you from roughing out your project to a flawless final surface. What’s more, sharpening equipment and skill aren’t needed at all.

We didn’t stop with a patent pending design for turning tools. We took our exclusive carbide inserts and built them into the Pen Mill Ci. No matter what exotic wood, acrylic product or cast hybrid you work with, the Pen Mill Ci out-cuts and out-lasts everything else on the market.

Rest assured the product development team at Woodpeckers is working on the next big thing in woodturning, and right here is the best place to find out about it. The links below will take you to the specific pages for each Ultra-Shear product. When there’s something new, you’ll find it right here first.
