Robert Sorby 3/4" Excelsior High Performance Spindle Roughing Gouge (843GH)
Made from hardened and tempered high speed steel and then Titanium Nitride coated for increased resistance to edge wear. Will hold an edge much longer than standard high speed steel. This is the tool of choice for the initial turning of uneven or square spindle stock to round. Not designed for use on bowl grain projects. The shape of the spindle roughing gouge enables the tool to cut safely with the wings (the tips of the side walls) well back from the workpiece. It comes with hard White Ash handle and brass ferrule.
NEVER use a spindle roughing gouge to turn bowls!
Blade width: 3/4" (19mm)
