4 mm diameter carving cutter designed for use with Wivamac carving machines. These cutters are single fluted and profiled to match the standard matching tracing stylus profile (type WSF48 - double ended style, 4mm and 8mm). The cutters are manufactured from high-speed steel since this material can be brought to a sharper edge than TCT and hence gives a cleaner surface finish. This is a delicate cutter and should be reserved for the carving of fine detail, using light cuts. Shank size 8mm (to match standard collet used on Wivamac carving machines)
WivaMac are producers of high quality, high performance, superbly built and specified woodturning lathes.
We have worked with WivaMac since our very beginings, indeed we were a customer before we were a retailer. We visited Willy's shop in Belgium where we lived at the time and this was our 'pilgrimage' for woodturning equipment.
We have seen the evolution of the machines over the years. Hemsley Sr. continues to turn on his DB6000 to this day, whilst Hemsley Jr. tackles work on a Zebrano - generations of owners, separated by generations of machines, it seems only fitting really.
To this day, WivaMac continue to put quality manufacturing and innovation top of their list and continue to deliver superbly considred lathes to those who settle for only the best.
