The Robert Sorby Roughing-Out Gouges are recommended for the initial turning of uneven or square spindle stock to round. The shape of the roughing-out gouge enables the tool to cut safely with the wings (name game to the tips of the side walls) well back from the workpiece. These are not designed for use on bowl grain projects. Made from M2 Sheffield High Speed Steel with a comfortable, Ash handle aimed to give balance and control. The deeply seated tang provides extra safety. Also has a finely polished flute to ensure optimum cutting edge. Overall length: 19"
Also available in the High Performance range, where the cutting edge is enhanced by its Titanium Nitrade coating. High Performance overall length: 21"
