Monster Lathe Tools was founded over a decade ago by toolmaking icon Randy Privett. He quickly earned a reputation for producing the best woodturning tools of their type on the market. In addition to designing and building top-quality tools, Randy was always well known for exemplary customer service. As he prepared for retirement, Randy worked hard to hand over his designs and manufacturing processes to his family members so that they could carry on the Monster Lathe Tools tradition he had so firmly established. Sadly, Randy is no longer with us, but we are confident we can honor Randy’s legacy by continuing to produce woodturning tools just as he would using his time-tested designs, manufacturing our products with keen attention to details, and providing excellent and personal customer service.

All of the tools you see on this site – with the exception of carbide cutters – are manufactured by us. We don’t farm out any parts or products to other companies to make for us. If we’re going to put the Monster name on something, it has to be made here in this shop. Please take a moment to read the Shipping Information and Safety Disclaimer on the Help menu the left side of this page. If you have any questions or suggestions about our products, please don’t hesitate to e-mail or call us and we will gladly discuss them with you.
