The roughing gouge performs the initial removal of wood in spindle turning. The high flute sides make it ideal for roughing from square to round with the cut made in the center area of the gouge. The sides cut like a skew to smooth the ripples from cylinder and taper shapes leaving a surface finish good enough to go straight to sanding without using any other tool. The roughing gouge works well in pen turning also. Please read Spindle Roughing Use Instructions before use.
The 3/4" Spindle Roughing Gouge is the most comon size and works well on all diameters of spindles. The secondary photos show Ron's personal 3/4" SRG and has been sharpened to a steeper angle than the factory grind. Ron prefers a 35 degree bevel rather than the standard 45 degree, sometimes even more blunt, factory grind.
