Very glad that I've got this!
Easy Start Rougher 3/8" Carbide Woodturning Tool
I use this primarily for acrylic and TruStone penblanks and it has proven to hold its edge very well. Less time sharpening & more turning! Yea!
BUT, the first one of these that I received, the blade retaining screw could not be loosened. I have to praise the WOODCRAFT customer service for PROMPTLY correcting it
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great tool but I need help!!!
I just got this tool and am trying to switch the blade. The retaining screw will not loosen. I have tried penetrating lube, heat, and visegrips on the allen wrench (which now has an interesting, but frustrating, spiral twist!)But the screw will not break free. Any suggestions?

I use this with the straight insert for initial roughing. Saves wear and tear on my mini rougher with the 2" radius insert. At just a little more than 1/2 the price of the full up mini rougher it is worth evey penny. This is not the first tool I have purchased from Woodcraft. Awesome service.

I bought this tool for my wife. She enjoys making pens but doesn't like using a conventional roughing gouge. This rougher solved that problem. Now I can't get her out of the garage.
