I’ve got a lathe tool I bought a decade or so ago. I think it’s by Crown tools, but can’t find it on their website anymore. I just need to know what it’s called. First I’ll try with just a description, and hopefully someone can help before I have to break out the camera.
It’s not a conventional skew, gouge, scraper or diamond parting tool. It’s not carbide. The cutting tip is a ring with the bevel on the inside, like someone took a 1/2” piece of tapered pipe and beveled both openings and then welded the whole thing onto a lathe handle. One opening is slightly larger than the other. Supposedly if it’s sharpened correctly this wonder tool can hog out material on a bowl from one end, or remove shavings the size of gnats whiskers from the other. In my (less than) expert hands it has only proved capable of removing giant jagged chunks of wood the size of Montana from either end.
Anyone know what it’s called? I’m hoping to track down directions for correctly sharpening and using it somewhere on the internet.
