Ashley Iles woodturning tools are handmade in Lincolnshire by a small team of highly skilled traditional toolmakers. Trusted by generations of woodturners for the superb quality of their steel, Ashley Iles turning tools have a reassuring heft in the hand and are a sheer delight to use.
Unless otherwise specified, all the tools in this section are made from cryogenically hardened M2 HSS, a well proven and much loved steel for woodturning tools that holds it's edge for a remarkably long time and has superb heat resistance properties.
This is proper hands-on British craft toolmaking in the finest old tradition, with hearths and anvils and big water cooled grinding wheels, the handles are made in Sheffield from beech and brass and are appropriately sized for each tool, it is a pleasure and a privilege to be able to offer tools of this quality for sale.
