NEW SERIOUS ULTIMATE 1/2" & 5/8 BOWL GOUGES
finest lathe tool is machined from a Super High Speed Steel alloy,
delivering unmatched hardness and very strong toughness. The Rockwell
C hardness (HRC) of these gouges actually measure between 68 HRC
and 70 HRC, which places them only below the carbide tools in hardness;--and
this translates to unmatched wear resistance for woodturning! With
the Serious Ultimate Gouge you will make far fewer trips to the
grinder, and the tool life will be 4 to 8 times what standard M2
The Serious Ultimate Bowl Gouges are 1/2" and 5/8 x
12 and parabolically fluted from end to end, with the double
ends CNC rounded. The tool does not arrive sharpened so that you
can apply your personal grind to your gouge (standard aluminum oxide
wheel). The tool length combined with the use of the Serious Camlock
Handle provides 9 of useful steel (more premium steel for
your money), or you can plant your Serious Ultimate Bowl Gouge in
your turned wood handle.
This super high speed steel alloy is not M2, A11, 15V, 2030, or
2060; we do not intend to release the name of this alloy. What matters
most is the Serious Ultimate Gouge develops a super fine edge, holds
it for the longest period of time, will resist edge chipping, and
clears high volumes of dry or wet shavings quickly. This is the
finest bowl gouge made,--anywhere.
As with all of our tools, if the Serious Ultimate Bowl Gouge at
any point in time fails to exceed your expectations you may return
it with a 100% refund.
