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
