Easy Start Rougher

Sharpening Carbide Cutters

Our YouTube Channel


    The Easy Start™ Rougher makes rough turning bowl blanks quick and easy. Unlike traditional bowl gouges that can be difficult to control when shaping an out-of-round blank, the Easy Start™ Rougher is designed to direct cutting pressure downward into the lathe so your lathe "takes the beating" for you. There’s no need to sharpen, simply rotate the cutter to expose a fresh cutting edge as needed and replace when dull. Includes premium Ci2 square carbide cutter, mounting screw and wrench.

    What makes the Easy Start Rougher so affordable?

    The Easy Start Rougher features a carbon steel shank, oiled Maple handle and steel ferrule making it easy on the pocket. But don’t worry, the Easy Start Rougher is supplied with same premium carbide cutter that’s supplied on the Mini Easy Rougher. Made in USA.
  • For small to medium size work on standard and mini lathes
  • Carbon steel, black oxide finished tool shaft
  • 9" oiled Maple handle
  • Includes premium Ci2 square carbide cutter
  • Tool shank- 3/8" x 4", overall tool length- 13"

Best tool ever

Comments On Dec 07, 2017:When I started turning I had a hard time sharpening my tools. However, when I purchased the Carbide Easy Start Rougher, I found the greatest tool ever. It made turning my pen blanks easy as cutting butter. In fact, I have never had to sharpen this tool. The time I would have spent in worrying if my tools had been sharp and purchasing allot of expensive equipment to keep it up to standard is next to none. My mind is at ease with going to the shop and picking the right tool for the job. Thank you CRAFT SUPPLIES USA for the highest standards in tools.

Easy Start Rougher

Comments On Dec 16, 2014:Received Monday and used later in day. This tool more than exceeded my expectations. My wife used and no longer wants to use her old tools when pen turning!

Great tool

Comments On Oct 19, 2014:This is such a great tool, it makes roughing down a pen blank very quick and easy. I used it on a larger blank for a pepper mill also. I'm very happy with it. I will say that this one does provide rough cuts and i use a skew to finish, I don't think you would be able to do a pen start to finish with it...there is a similar tool that is particular to pen turning with a rounded square tip.

Wonderful tool to use

Comments On Oct 17, 2013:Fast and easy to use and leaves a very good finish. I think my roughing gouge is going to get a lot less work.

Easy Wood Rougher

Comments On Sep 29, 2013:I really like the way this tool works! After using it, placed an order for the detailer after turning some 3 inch stock, and a second tool to use with the Ci2 cutter, or the round cutter.
