    Re: First Turn on New lathe.

    Thanks for the info.
    Could you or someone send me a picture of your bowl gouge profile?
    And what you use to sharpen.
    Thanks

      Hope this works for you, if not I can take pieces and post it that way, as you will see all or most are very similar as Bowl gouges unless they do want to turn a steep to bottom cut change.

      There is whole lot of BS on the gouges, the metal and the way they are sharpened, no wonder as some do try to make a living by selling the BS

      I have a belt grinder/sander an 8 inch high speed and a 10 inch low speed with regular carborundum wheels on them, I do have a bunch of different grinding wheels that I can mount, but that does normally not happen, as I use HSS tools there is no need for fancy wheels to sharpen my turning tools.

      I also use the most used jigs anywhere by all turners, The Wolverine grinding jig for most bowl gouges, plus the variable grind jig for the Irish grind.

      Also sharpening how-to.
