Also known simply as a roughing gouge. Recommended for the initial turning of uneven or square spindle stock to round. The shape of the spindle roughing gouge enables the tool to cut safely with the wings (the tips of the side walls) well back from the workpiece.
Originating from Europe, these tools 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.
Produced from a fine grade of cotton these deluxe mops have been made to deliver the ultimate finish. They are used after sanding to buff oil, lacquer and wax finishes to a lustrous sheen. Mops are fixed to the Sandmaster using the pigtail mandrel.
As the name of these woodturing tools suggests, Robert Sorby's swivel tip probes make an ideal tool choice for accessing and turning out those small apertures and restricted openings commonly associated with the turning of vases and deep vessels.
Three variations of probe offer the woodturner differing reach and access opportunities. The largest model (8803H) offers the additional advantage of having an articulated head to improve access when hollowing-out even the most demanding woodturning projects.
Each of the three sizes offers a different combination of cutting tip suitable for a range of turning tasks; making these tools ideal for the rapid removal of stock, general profiling, shaping and even fine finishing work on side and end grain.
