The tool design provides support directly beneath the cutting edge transferring the cutting pressure downward allowing the lathe to "take the pounding" that you would normally suffer through when using a conventional bowl gouge for roughing. No more white knuckling a bowl gouge.
Cuts left, right and straight in without changing approach angle. Truly deeper cuts up to 1 off the diameter in one pass with the Full Size Rougher.
Requires very little physical strength or exertion. Your feet and hips stay in nearly the same position for the blank roughing process. Very minimal handle bouncing on irregular shaped blanks. Reduced kick-back or sucking into work piece. Available Chip Deflector keeps most projectiles away from the face and neck.
No intimidating cutting angles to learn and remember. No fear of a dangerous catch.Handle length is 15", tool bar length is 9.5, overall 24.5". Rougher accepts 3 different cutters. Ci1-R2 (2 radius) , Ci1-R4 (4 radius) , or the Ci1-Square (no radius). These carbide cutters have four sharp sides.
The crowned, R2 and R4, cutters excel at spindle roughing and finishing and working inside bowls. Choose the square cutter for cutting square shoulders such as tenons on bowls and spindle work. For maximum efficiency, have a tool for each cutter. The Easy Rougher tool bars are CNC machined from solid stainless steel bar stock.
Replacement carbide cutter number is engraved right on the tool bar. The rougher come with a Ci-R4 square carbide cutter installed and a hex wrench. The Easy Rougher is capable of plunge cuts similar to using a giant parting tool. This type of cut sends massive amounts of material straight back at the operator. You will not regret having this deflector in place for those cuts.
