WTB Turning Tools
Feb 3rd, 2018 at 7:15am
 
I am looking forward to taking a 'no sand bowl class' from my local turning club. In the course description, these items are suggested:

* Favorite Bowl Gouge and an extra old one should you want to re-shape it into a Bottom Feeder or 40/40 Grind Gauge
* Traditional scraper and an old scraper or skew that we can make into a negative rake scraper

I am trying to find a bowl gouge for this reshaping and also a scraper. Does anyone have these tools that they don't use and are willing to part with for a reasonable price? I am trying to not have to buy new and don't want to give up my gouge or scraper for this repurpose.

Thanks.

Since you are not having any luck here, I suggest you get a couple of Benjamin's Best tools from Penn State. or if you want to spend more I like the Packard brand tools

Sorry Jenny

All of my bowl gouges are used by the vets I teach and I only have 3 of them and I have to sharpen often and they are 5/8"

I also do not have a scrapper that you would want since both of them are not HSS.

You will LOVE the bottom feeder that you grind.  I have one that spans that gap between walls and bottom without bruising the wood on the heel. I suggest that you spring for one.  I use mine ALL the time!

Eons ago,  I bought an old Grizzly lathe and a box of tools came with it. Last year, I gave the lathe to a local arts group for their fundraising and kept that box.

Now, these are really cheap gouges and such but I have already reground one in to a small NRS  about a 1/2" wide. It works nicely when the massively large NRS just won't fit!!

I might even regrind that old skew into something useful... like a screwdriver  Shocked Grin Grin[Thumbs Up]

Thanks guys.  I did buy a Benjamin's Best gouge and a scraper.  I haven't modified the grind yet but am looking forward to trying them both.
