Turning Archive 2007
here are the pics of the detail gauges I own, all keeping the original grind.
Sorry about the delay, but work is at full bore this time of the year.
The gouges on the pics, left to right:
5/16" Packard (Hamlet), 3/8" and 1/2" P&N, I bought this two from Michael Hosaluk and this is the grind they had, I was very impressed when he used them to make balls and eggs and to shape the outside of a vase, leaving a very smooth surface.
The pics are lousy, but you can see the shapes, a detail I add is to kill the edge at the bottom of the bevel and hone the edge with a diamond file. The last one is the Thompson one, I bought it a few months ago and had not a chance to use it yet, hope this helps.
Waiting for the snow to fly to start turning again
