Easy Wood® Carbide-Tipped Turning Tools
See it in action
The Easy Rougher is a carbide cutter woodturning tool that addresses fatigue, safety, and efficiency like no other type of tool on the market. Designed to be kept flat on the tool rest and level to the floor, the Easy Rougher will effortlessly hog away massive amounts of material for any woodturning process without the need for sharpening. The tool design provides support directly beneath the cutting edge transferring the cutting pressure downward allowing the lathe to "take the pounding" that you would normally suffer through when using a conventional bowl gouge for roughing.
- Cuts left, right and straight in without changing approach angle
- Truly deeper cuts – up to 1" off the diameter in one pass with the Full Size Rougher.
- Requires very little physical strength or exertion
- Your feet and hips stay in nearly the same position for the blank roughing process.
- Very minimal handle bouncing on irregular shaped blanks.
- Reduced kick-back or sucking into work piece
- No intimidating cutting angles to learn and remember.
- No bevels to ride.
- No fear of a dangerous catch.
- The Full Size Rougher accepts 3 different cutters: Ci1-R2, Ci1-R4, or the Ci1-Square.
- The Mini and Mid-Size Easy Rougher accepts 2 different cutters: Ci2-R2 or the Ci2-Square.
The Easy Finisher takes up where the Easy Rougher leaves off. It has a round carbide cutter perfect for doing the inside work on smaller bowls and for larger coves on spindle work.
The Easy Finishers are designed to be used with the tool rest set so that when the tool is held level the top of the cutter is on center. Just keep it level to the floor and flat on the tool rest for all types of cuts. There are no complicated approach angles, or bevels to ride. The design of this tool allows the Easy Finisher to effortlessly cut from the center of a bowl out to the rim or from the rim to the center! - All without changing any angles whatsoever.
The Easy Finisher utilizes the same carbide cutter technology as the Easy Rougher that reduces strain and fatigue, improves productivity, and virtually eliminates sharpening. It comes loaded with one round cutter and when it gets dull, you just rotate the cutter for a fresh cut. Please note: The round cutters are not interchangeable with the carbide cutters on the Easy Rougher tool bars.
Available in four sizes - Mini, Mid-Size, Full-Size and Pro.
The Easy Detailer tools really pick up where other tools leave off and provide another level of woodturning creativity as the unique diamond cutter shape fits in tight places where the cutters on the other tools will just not fit.
These tools were designed for the primary purpose of doing the small intricate work and cutting final details on your projects such as small coves and beads on both spindle and bowl work. They are also very handy for cutting chuck tenons and making inside reverse angle cuts for inside chucking bowls with dovetail jaws. You may find they work well for hogging your green wood projects too.
The Easy Detailer tools are engineered with a reduced relief angle to the long cuttings edges making the long edges less aggressive when held in contact with the wood as the nose of the tool is cutting. In use, the long edge is intended to perform as a "control surface" and serve to be in contact with the wood just behind the cut; much like a bevel is being rubbed.
Each diamond-shaped Easy Detailer cutter is engineered to fit all size Detailer tools in our current product line. When the cutter eventually dulls, just loosen the retaining screw and rotate cutter, then re-tighten the screw.
For safety reasons, avoid plunging the tool so deep into the work at once to the depth you would have both sides of the cutter in contact with the wood too greatly at the same time. This could cause too much force at once and lead to binding of the tool in the groove.
