  1. 3/4 Inch Roughing Gouge

    Posted by Vaughn on Dec 21st 2020

    A very nice roughing gouge for small and medium sized projects. I have not used the gouge a lot as yet, but it worked well for what I have done. Much more comfortable to use than larger gouges. Quality of the tool is exceptional, holds an edge well. Will likely buy more D-Way tools in the future.

  2. Excellent tool as usual from D-Way

    Posted by Ed Sims on Dec 18th 2020

    Well made and delivered sharp. D-Way's tools are just as advertised - unusual in todays world.

  3. Great tool

    Posted by Bruce on Dec 17th 2020

    I only wish I had bought a larger one.

  4. Incredibly sharp

    Posted by Christopher Burns on Nov 19th 2020

    Removed protective cover to inspect edge and couldn't put it back on without the edge cutting the cover. These tools are incredibly sharp and ready to use right off the bat.

  5. D-Way Tools are the best

    Posted by Norman L Hix on Aug 28th 2020

    This tool is the workhorse of my shop. I turn tool handles mostly from exotic wood. I actually have three in my tool rack. The oldest is a bit stubby but has a lot of life left. Hold their edge and plenty of backbone so you can make piles chips. No spindle turner should be without this tool.

  6. Great Tool

    Posted by Tim Dunbar on Aug 20th 2020

    This is the first spindle gouge I have bought and I am loving it - very efficient way of removing waste wood and like the other D-Way tools I have, it stays sharp a long time.

    Great tool and the finish is hard to believe - PERFECT!

  7. All the tools and accessories are wonderful.

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 7th 2020

    Every single item I purchased was absolutely above and beyond my highest expectations in both quality and performance. These tools have allowed me to perforn cuts I've struggled with for years.

  8. Great tool!

    Posted by Arlin Peterson on Dec 20th 2019

    I got my new roughing gouge, fitted into my custom desert ironwood handle and the heft and feel of it is perfect! Cuts excellent and used to turn many pieces so far. If your looking for a great tool, buy this one!

  9. Love the weight and balance

    Posted by Ross Cockfield on Nov 26th 2019

    I've been using carbide tools and have started using HSS to improve the quality of my work. The D-Way tools and the roughing gouge I recently purchased have heft and balance that I love. The weight of the tool(s) give you a command of the cut and what you're doing. The tools are exceptionally well made and come ready to go.

  10. Roughing gouge

    Posted by John D from NH on Feb 8th 2019

    Bought this gouge to use as a rougher on my 10" Jet. Unwrapped it, smiled, and immediately stuck it in an 8" handle, chucked up a length of 2 x 2 cocobolo and made some test cuts... It's well balanced, is small enough to use for all but the finishing details, cuts like butta and feels real good in the hand. Will put it in a 12" handle and use it on my 20" lathe too. It's a well engineered versatile tool that will get lots of use and another great D-Way tool for my collection. Highly recommend giving this bad as little tool a try.
