How to Sharpen a Spindle Roughing Gouge
Comparing Tool Steels
Comments On Feb 24, 2019:I have been using the Robert Sorby SRG for a few years. I have two sizes, 3/4 inch and 1 1/4 inch, and properly sharpened, they easily turn square wood to round very quickly!
The final finish on the wood using these roughing gouges is awesome, often only requiring just a little sanding before applying finishing wax or oil.
In my opinion, Robert Sorby turning tools are examples of perfection, both in quality, beauty and use!
Additional Comments On Jan 09, 2021:Since I posted my first review, I have obtained the Robert Sorby 1/2 inch and 5/16 inch MINI roughing gouges. Same great SORBY quality and they hold an edge. Perfect for smaller projects and turning down wooden pen blanks.
