Welcome to Robust Tools: “We make things for people who make things”.

**Price increases effective December 1, 2021:  It is with great reluctance that we are increasing many prices, some of them significantly.  Material prices have gone up 150 to 325% from prepandemic levels.  Many of our parts, from expensive components like motors and bearings to the smallest of fasteners have also increased.  Through it all, our commitment to provide you the finest quality lathes and turning accessories has continued. **

At Robust Tools, we combine skillful engineering and quality materials to produce premium woodturning lathes and accessories.  Designing from the turners perspective lets you concentrate on turning instead of fussing with your lathe.

         Our greatest compliment: "It's like the lathe isn't even there."

All Robust lathes and accessories are made in Barneveld, Wisconsin by skilled craftsmen earning a living wage. Our commitment to quality is reflected in the products you receive. We back our lathes with a complete 7 year warranty and our toolrests are warranted for life.
