CROWN PRO PM BOWL GOUGES
Crown’s exclusive new range of Pro-PM woodturning tools are the 'elite' of all turning chisels.
Made from an advanced Powder Metal, the molten steel has been compressed and sintered giving the Pro-PM turning tools a cutting edge which Crown claim will last up to four/five times that of a conventional High Speed Steel tool.
The gouges are hardened to between 66° and 68° Rockwell, enabling the tools to have a vastly superior wear resistance, excellent grindability, superior toughness, a high working hardness and a high retention of hardness. The ergonomically designed stained black ash handles fitted to these tools make the finished chisels unbeatable.
We have tried these tools and although we couldn’t say they stayed sharp four or five times longer, on hard, dry wood, they did hold their edge longer yet sharpened as easily as any HSS.
Very nice handles too.
For timbers that have a severe blunting effect on the cutting edge, these tools will be useful, so we have introduced those we consider to be the main four from the range.
