1/2″ Detail / Spindle Gouge – Unhandled
The strong 1/2″ spindle/detail gouge has a flute with shallow radius and 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, and sometime add a secondary bevel. Many turners who are primarily bowl turners find these much friendlier for spindle turning than using a skew. Also available handled.
