At 13mm this tool has 5mm more cutting edge than its micro tool equivalent adding to its ability to remove waste quickly and efficiently. Designed specifically for the Modular series of tools it is commonly used for the initial turning of uneven or square spindle stock to round. The shape of the roughing gouge enables the tool to cut safely with the wings (the tips of the side walls) well back from the work piece. This tool is commonly used for preparing 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.
