Designed by the noted British turner Reg Sherwin, and highly recommended by Reg Stack, these roughing gouges are gouges are machined from solid HSS rods and have the heft needed for doing rapid controlled turning. Unlike regular machined gouges, these tools have a deep flute like forged roughing gouges. They are perfect for handling smaller work that the big gouges would overwhelm.

Except where noted all tools are made of high speed steel (HSS) and are sold handled. Tony Iles hand finishes each and every turning tool himself and is proud that every tool is shipped with its surfaces ground and edges broken. These are tools that will feel wonderful in the hand, with a heft makes them feel very solid - a real aid in turning. All the tools are shipped sharp and ready to use, although we fully expect many of you to customize the grinds to your particular working methods.

woodturner who volunteers at 3 highschools

By: jeff marshall (Aug, 2016)

I have used an Ashley iles 5/8 shank roughing gouge for pens with the high schools because they can do the whole pen with one tool that is easy to explain and sharpen.
I own this product.
