Spindle Roughing Gouge tutorial!
« on: January 09, 2012, 08:39:55 AM »
 :2up:  If you're like me, and are self-taught on the lathe, seeing videos like this will really help you learn WHAT a specific tool can ACTUALLY do for you!

There is no doubt a spindle roughing gouge CAN (if used to its fullest extent) save us a TON of time getting to the finer details of a call turning project.

Hope you enjoy this video as much as I did!   :up1:

Good link Parker.  I use my roughing gouge probably more than any other turning tool on my bench.  I've modified mine a little on the grinder so the wings are swept back quite a bit.  Makes it a lot less likely to catch, but I couldn't use mine for cutting square shoulders like he does (I have tools that are better for that anyhow).  The roughing gouge gets less attention and use in a lot of shops than it should, as it is a really versatile spindle tool.

i also do most of my woek with he gouge. i really enjoyed this vid, thanks for posting it. I enjoyed his use of the skew also. I use to use my skew a lot but have almost totally gotten away from it in the last year or so. Don' know why as it is also a very versitile tool. i find it interesting how we move fm one too to another as we progress in our turning.
