This is a Authentic made in the USA Easy Wood Tools Ci3 round carbide cutter designed to fit the Easy Start, Mid and Mini Easy Wood Finishers and both Pro and Full Size Hollowers. Be careful of cheap imitations of Easy Wood Tools carbide cutters. Authentic EWT cutters have the optimal 3G's of Carbide - Grade, Grind, and Geometry. 1) The Right Grade: Carbide is essentially a mixture of tungsten powder and cobalt that is merged together under high pressure and heat. The ratio of cobalt to tungsten and the size of the tungsten particle are described jointly as the 'grade'. There are literally numerous thousands of possible grades and no 'one grade' of carbide is fit for all applications - whether wood cutting or metal cutting. The ideal mix of cobalt and grain size in EWT Carbide cutters yields a cutting edge that is both the keenest and the most resilient grade for woodturning available today. 2) The Right Grind: EWT grinds all of their cutters on incredibly rigid CNC mills to avoid micro breaking of the cutting edges. EWT uses the appropriate grit diamond wheels to produce the flattest, truest surfaces possible with minimal grinding scratches left on the surface area. All the cutter surfaces are ground in the optimal series to bring the edge into keenness throughout the extremely last process, or once again micro breaking of the cutting edges will happen if the appropriate series is not followed. 3) The Right Geometry: EWT grinds all their cutters to the appropriate angles and geometries specifically for woodturning. This produces an edge that cuts both cleanly and securely for all ability levels. Just when grade, grind, and geometry are in harmony will you have a cutting edge for high efficiency woodturning. Includes replacement 4-40 countersink maker screw.
