The American Carbide Tool carbide-tipped square nose lathe tool bit has a C style with a neutral-hand cutting direction and a C6 grade for forming, turning, facing, chamfering, and grooving applications on soft steel and steel alloys. The C style, also referred to as square nose, tool shape has a 0-degree nose angle and provides a neutral-hand cutting direction for right-to-left or left-to-right feed. The tool tip is made of C6 grade uncoated carbide for a combination of wear and shock resistance, and is brazed onto a steel shank for strength. The square shank fits square toolholders.
Brazed tools, also referred to as carbide-tipped lathe tool bits and single-point brazed carbide-tipped tools, are used for metal shaping on lathes. These single-point tools have a cutting edge at one end that may be a carbide tip brazed to a steel shaft. They come in more than one geometry styles for different cutting applications and are identified by a lettering standard that conforms to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B212.1 specifications. Brazed tools are to be had in three hand options: right, left, and neutral. A right-hand tool has its principal cutting edge at the right side of the tool to feed into the workpiece from right to left, a left-hand tool feeds into the workpiece from left to right, and a neutral-hand tool will cut either left to right or right to left. The side cutting and end cutting edge angles, in combination with the angle at which the tool is situated when it comes to the workpiece (also referred to as the lead angle), assist resolve the tool’s cutting shape and action.
