Axminster Premium 3/8" Bowl Gouge
24 March 2017
Great tool for the priceHaving gained confidence in my spindle turning abilities, I bought this 3/8" bowl gouge as I now need to practice my bowl turning techniques. Going off the other reviews, you'd think you're getting a bargain and you wouldn't be wrong. I ordered it yesterday, it arrived today (amazing for £1 delivery) and I've already tried it out on a new bowl blank. I did need to regrind it as the cutting edge was strangely ground lopsided but that took all of 5 minutes. Have to say, first impressions are excellent. I'm sure the more experienced turners would say "buy cheap, get cheap" but I'm in my first year of woodturning and the Axminster range of gouges have not let me down or been a disappointment. And I'm told I'm producing some good pieces to a good standard. Well done Axminster for keeping my new hobby affordable. 4 stars for quality due to the misshapen cutting edge but the rest is spot on.
