    Dang Tang Broke Again

    Comments about WoodRiver Roughing Gouge 3/4" :

    Woodcraft replaced the first one that broke at the tang. Within a couple of months, the replacement broke in the same spot. The tang is just not big enough for this size gouge. Spend the money and by a higher quality too.

    Comments about WoodRiver Roughing Gouge 3/4" :

    No where does it say made in China in the catalog. I found that the HSS does not hold an edge very long. It would be better to purchase a English or American made HSS tool. The extra cost would be worth it.

    [...] It claims to be Professional Quality High Speed Steel.The Wood River gouge does not hold an edge as long as other English made High Speed Steel tools. Therefore it requires more often sharpening and without saying a shorter life than a better tool. [...]

    fatigue fracture early in life

    • Attractive Design

    Cons

    • Not durable

    Best Uses

    Comments about WoodRiver Roughing Gouge 3/4" :

    Worked well until the metal fractured at the tang. This may have been a defect in the metal, but it hadn't been used much and was not dropped or abused.
