Crown's Diamond Parting Tool in the elite Pro-PM version. Used in the same manner as a standard parting tool, however, the diamond cross section of the tool minimizes the chance for binding in the cut, and reduces friction and burning. Stained black ash handle is approx. 12-1/2" long. England
About Crown Pro-PM Tools
The "elite" of Crown's turning tools, Pro-PM tools are made from an advanced Powder Metal (PM). The molten steel has been compressed and sintered to give them a cutting edge which lasts four-five times longer than conventional High Speed Steel (HSS) tools.
They are hardened to between 66° and 68° Rockwell, enabling them to have vastly superior wear resistance, excellent grindability, superior toughness, a high working hardness and a high retention of hardness.
The ergonomically designed stained black ash handles fitted to these tools make the finished chisels unbeatable. Most tools have 12-1/2" long handles and are approx. 18-1/2" long overall. England
