|Spindle Roughing Gouge|
Cutting edge can range from 35° - 45°.
Rake can range from 0° - 25°.
|45°||35° - 45°||20°||0° - 25°||Tormek SVD-186||6||55 mm||B|
|35°||Tormek SVS-50||0°||55 mm||B||
Alan Batty recommended 45°, and this is generally recommended by many. I certainly recognize Mr. Batty's proven experience, but I've found that the 35° realized with these Tormek settings works extremely well.
