Lee Valley 9-Piece Turning Chisel Set
The roughing and spindle gouges, parting tool, and skew chisel are for work between centers. Designed for converting square stock to round, the deep-sweep roughing gouge is equally useful for smoothing cylinders and tapers. The shallow-fluted spindle gouges have blunt fingernail grinds for bead and cove work. The diamond parting tool has relieved edges to reduce friction build-up when working a deep kerf. The side of the oval skew chisel is radiused to glide along the tool rest when cutting beads or pommels.
The bowl gouge and scrapers are used in faceplate work. The deep-fluted bowl gouge has a backswept fingernail grind for a smooth finish on crossgrain. Made from 1/4" bar to resist chatter, the round-nose scraper is for bowls, the square scraper for box work. Each will remove material quickly or take tissue-thin finishing cuts.
