My old bottom feeder, ground to about 85, out of Ellsworth instructions, got too short to sharpen. I got a few new Thompson Tools today. Included a beautiful 3/4 bottom feeder... My old detail spindle gouge also got too short, got a new one, I like it when I jam chuck and reverse the bowl to do the bottom, also use it in my boxes for detail work... Doug mention a few professional turners, and their favorite bottom feeders, what they use for when the 60 won't rub anymore... I have found that with the years turning I can get a decent finish even with the 60, so when I'm rough turning I go all the way with the same gouge, but for finishing I switch for a better cut. Whats your favorite tool for the bottom, size and angle?
