Robert Sorby Unhandled 1/2" Modular Micro Gouge (888/4)
Similar to the B888-1 modular roughing gouge, but with wings swept further back in the guise of a continental roughing gouge, further reducing the risk of any unwanted catch.
A popular blade and shape, this tool is designed to cut waste material in much the same way as the ‘rougher’ and is great for reducing down square stock to round. Ideal for roughing out pen blanks.
Robert Sorby Modular Micro tools were designed following the success of the full-size Sovereign System. These miniature versions are scaled down version of poplar full-size tools and fit into knurled, anodized aluminum handles offered in 2 sizes, 5-3/4" and 7-3/4". Modular micro tools come in 18 different versions to address the full spectrum of micro turning. Multiple prearranged set are also available. All tool blades are made from Sorby’s signature High Speed Steel (HSS). This HSS tool will keep a sharpened edge about six times longer than carbon steel and resist "blued" softening from overheating during grinding or from heavy use. The unique sizes and proﬁles of these micro modular tools have been adapted to provide the ﬂexibility and control essential for fine, detail work. These tools are ideal for working on smaller projects and on smaller lathes.
Size: 1/2" (13mm)
