1/2 Detail/Spindle Gouge – Handled

$ 109.00

The 1/2″ spindle/detail gouge has a polished flute with a shallow radius.  Like our all our gouges, it is made from Nitrided high speed steel. We use the American method of gouge measurement, which means the shank is 1/2″ diameter.

Shipped with a 45 degree grind, many turners sharpen these types of gouges to a sharper angle to get into tighter spots, and some add a secondary bevel for more relief. Many turners who are primarily bowl turners find these much friendlier for spindle turning than using a skew.

The handle is hard maple with a stainless steel ferrule.  Also available unhandled.
