hook tools for roughing?

Postby Fuzzy » Fri Dec 07, 2007 4:29 pm

In Robin's video I saw him using a hook tool for roughing. Is there anything different in the profile of the tool (thicker, bigger hook, etc) that allows the tool to be used in this way?

nope one tool can do everything if its a good tool. Having said that for full time production work I do tend to have several similar tools and keep one really sharp one that only ever does the final cut. I hope to do a bit about forging tool here soon its really easy you should try it.

ps we now have a bowlturning section can a moderator move this there?
