Turbo Carver

Turbo Carver II operates at 450,000 RPM making it the fastest in the world. The faster this type instrument turns, the better it works.

Turbo Carver II offers the advantages of an Ultra High Speed rotary air carving and engraving instrument at an affordable price.

Turbo Carver II is the size & weight of a fine writing instrument! Its light weight and small size allows you to do more precise work than any of the other instruments. Carve for hours without fatigue! Excellent for scrimshaw, carving, inlays and engraving of materials ranging from cork to ivory and even the hardest metals.

Why we think the Turbo Carver is the best!

Our system is completely lubrication-free. We use a patented Anti Contamination device and a 5-micron air filter to prevent dirt from entering the hand-piece. Most other high-speed instruments create a vacuum that draws contamination into the front bearing, a leading cause of bearing failure. This is why some require you to disassemble and clean the bearings on a routine basis. We have eliminated the vacuum with a patented pinched valve on the exhaust outlet. Another cause of bearing failure is heat buildup in the bearings. This regulator valve increases airflow through the bearings, keeping them cool while running at speeds up to 450,000 rpm.

Variable Speed Foot Control with lifetime warranty allows you to vary the speed so that you can use low speed grinding burs as well as high speed cutters.

 

Includes everything you need to get started carving or engraving using your own air compressor.

Turbo Carver II with Water Mist

This is excellent for working in eggs, glass, bone, etc. This is excellent for help controlling dust when working in eggs, glass, bone, etc. Eliminates most dust, polishes the cut, helps prevent stress fracturing and keeps the bur cooler for longer bur life. The system consumes about 1 drop of water per second.
It can also be used without water for wood carving. Carvers and etchers love the way it blows air directly on the bur to keep dust away from the precise carving area being carving without water. With water it dampens the dust and cools the bur with an invisible mist making your job easier.

  • Turbo Carver water-misting handpiece

What Air Compressor Should You Use?

The Turbo Carver ll works best on a 3/4hp compressor (either with or without a tank) which are available at many tool and hardware stores.  Due to competitive pricing and additional shipping expense, we suggest  you purchase a compressor from your local dealer.  Purchasing the compressor locally not only will save you money, but also any unexpected problems can be solved quickly.

Still ...for those wishing to purchase an excellent quality compressor made by Turbo Carver exclusively we offer the following Quiet Twin Compressor

Incredibly smooth and as easy to use as a pencil, Turbo Carver II like most ultra high speed engravers gives you the power to create beautifully detailed engravings and relief carvings in Wood, Glass, Bone, Stone, Paper, Leather, Hard Metals, Eggs, Antler, Gems, and the like. If you can trace a line, you can create beautiful engravings and carvings on your first try. We are certain you will be delighted with the Turbo Carver II.  6 month Manufacturers Defect Warranty.
