    The Easy Rougher makes rough turning bowls to shape quick and easy. Unlike traditional bowl gouges that can be difficult to control when shaping an out-of-round blank, the Easy Rougher is designed to direct the cutting pressure downward through the lathe so your lathe "takes a beating" for you.
    To use, simply hold the Easy Rougher in a horizontal position with the cutter aligned with the center of the work piece and cut away, it’s that easy! There’s no need to sharpen, simply rotate the cutter to expose a fresh cutting edge as needed and replace when dull. Includes premium Ci1 R4 carbide cutter, mounting screw and wrench and instructions. Made in USA
  • For medium to large size work on standard lathes
  • Milled Stainless steel shaft

Super nice!

Comments On Dec 24, 2013:This is one beastly tool! I have used the easy rougher so much it's earned a permanent spot on my lathe bench it never leaves! Roughing out bark on bowl blanks and burls even for square spindles it works great. Knots, splits, crotches, and it even cut a small nail! Not having to sharpen or even hone it is a huge plus. I use it for the heavy duty roughing and then finish with regular gouges but I've been getting better at shear cutting and leaving a smooth finish with the carbide cutter. I'd recommend the lexan chip deflector to go with this, makes it even more fun to turn with.

Excellent - Takes the hard work out of roughing!

Comments On Mar 16, 2013:I rough a lot of hard limbs with knots, and even large roughing gouges had a hard time. I didn't expect much better from the Easy Rougher, but wow, what a difference! The force is transferred through the tool to the tool rest, just like they say, so I no longer get knocked around while roughing even the hardest, most irregular pieces, and I'm done in a fraction of the time. And no more trips to the grinder. It's also an excellent tool for any type of convex curve. I use it constantly, and I can't recommend it highly enough!
