  • Micro gouge

    I broke one of my micro gouges recently and am looking for a replacement. The ones I have now came in a set and I do not want to go that route again. I am looking for something like a #11 veiner in .5 or 1.0mm. I have seen pictures of a couple but I want one that has a shaft as thin as or thinner than the gouge itself. I use these tools for getting into very tight areas and a thick tool just will not work. Any recommendations?

      What you are looking for is made by Stubai; it is a 1mm extra deep veiner.
      The shank is tapered from tip to handle allowing "drilling" of deep holes easily.

      I no longer carry the 1mm.
      Check with Stubai Direct; you can find them in any carving magazine.
      http://www.stubaidirect.com/
      Price from Stubai $27.95

        These could be Dockyard micro gouges. Smokey Mountain Woodcarvers carries them. Rick may, I'm not sure.

          Yes, Rick at www.littleshavers.com has Dockyard.
          So does MDI and Woodcraft.
          I'm a giant Dockyard fan but you all are making the Stubai sound mighty interesting.
          And I need some more tools.

            Dockyard is what I broke, but only the veiner. I do not want to buy another whole set to get the one tool. I have tried to find a good photo of the stubai but cannot find one. I am concerned that the shank be as thin or thinner than the gouge. May just have to order the stubai and take a chance.

              Paul - by now you know that you can't rely on much I say about tools ... I DO try, but ...........
              Anyhow, I 'think' the smallest Dockyard veiner is 1.5.
              I think their veiners come in 1.5, 2, 3, 4 & 5 mm.
              If you need the 1.5, let me know and I'll mail you one. I have several sets of Dockyard and I rarely use the 1.5.

                I think you can buy a whole set of the Dockyard for not much more than the cost of the 1 Stubai
                The Stubai are great tools though
                I have never seen the Dockyard sold individually though the ones I have seen were always in a set

                  Paul I picked up a set of Ramelson micro's a few months ago at a carving show for $32 from The Woodcraft Shop. They were also selling single tools and they are what you're looking for. If Rick doesn't have them, try http://www.thewoodcraftshop.com/

                    Thanks Nancy. I use these small tools a lot and may just go ahead and buy the stubai. Although the Dockyards have done me well, I have been extremely careful with them. Think I will see if the Stubai is a little more substantial.

                      Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                      And on each cloud touching the body ?
                      I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                      Thanks

                      I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                      Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                      What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                      Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

                      I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
