Bowl, Spindle & Roughing
SUPERFLUTE BOWL GOUGES
The original Superflute HS1, designed in 1978 by Roy Child, has sold in thousands all over the world and remains the ultimate gouge used by many leading turners.
The Superflute can also be bought with a fingernail grind, by adding an ‘A’ to the product ref. (e.g., HS84A)
TRADITIONAL BOWL GOUGES
The ‘U’ shaped flute of the traditional Diamic bowl gouge is still a popular choice among many woodturners today.
These gouges can also be bought with a fingernail grind, by adding an ‘A’ to the product ref. (e.g., HS39A)
SPINDLE ROUGHING GOUGES
These large gouges are used between centres to take the corners off and shape shallow curves. Used with a slicing cut, they can give an excellent finish akin to that produced by the skew.
ROUND BAR SPINDLE GOUGES
Spindle gouges are used for detailed shaping between centres on parallel grain, particularly for concave curves.
FORGED BAR SPINDLE GOUGES
These spindle gouges can be used to create beads, coves and other profiles on vases, goblets, candle sticks and more shaped work.
