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 utilizes 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.
