  • 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.

                      The first thing you need to Check is that the upper arm is parallel to the table! Check your manual on how to set up your saw. From the specifications the max cut depth is 2.05 inches so you are at the saw limit. I like the Pegas MGT series. The MGt 5 (11.5 TPI) or the 7 (10.4 TPI)...

                      I don't have much doubt that I asked these questions to Denny in an email back when I got my Pegas saw from him. But none of my saved emails were transferred over from the old computer to this new one.

                      Since what I use mostly is 3/4-inch pine and 1/4 inch multiply which pegas blade would...

                      Hi Jim.

                      The paints I used are mainly aerosol spray.

                      The green is Rus-oleum Painters touch, craft enamel.

                      The red is a stores brand own name, just called Wilko's

                      Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

                      I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.
