BOWL GOUGE SELECTION

Dennis Taylor (Akron, Ohio)
>Looking for a 1/2 bowl gouge for myself for a xmas present...I have looked at both packard and woodturners catalog...question is this:..for a beginner bowl turner, should I get the fingernail or standard gouge?...I have a 1/4 which isn't worth much, has to much vibration, but want to get the 1/2, but what one should I look at?..if any comments, maybe can you identify by item number...sorry to ask so much, just so many choices, and I don't know if there is a difference between a 39.00 gouge and a 79.00 gouge, other than 40.00?...tks everyone..Dennis
