Robert Sorby Spindle Gouges are intended for use in detailing and are used on between-centre work, where the grain is running parallel to the lathe bed. Spindle Gouges are used to create coves, beads and other profiles on goblets, vases and egg cups etc. Made from M2 Sheffield High Speed Steel with an Ash Handle that gives comfort, balance and control. The tang is deeply seated in the handle for added safety.
The Spindle Gouges are available in Standard, Fingernail, High Performance, Long & Strong and Continental versions.
Fingernail Spindle Gouges are ideal for fine detailing on spindle work. Having the wing tips ground back reduces the danger of them catching when working in confined areas.
High Performance Spindle Gouges are coated in Titanium Nitrade to increase performance and resistance to edge wear. Sharpens like any other HSS tool.
The Long & Strong Spindle Gouge have the same strength blade as the standard, only longer. The increased length allows a further reach into the workpiece.
The Continental Style originates from European styles and have gained a reputation for their superb handling qualities on spindle work. Being a forged construction, they have an even wall thickness, thereby increasing finesse without compromising strength.
