I read Dennis J Gooding's post regarding the design characteristics about blunt but sharp turning tools and the way they cut the wood as it is turning on the lathe. I am not sure I followed this post at all but this brought up a question that I have often wondered about. I typically grind my spindle gouges to around a 35 degree angle, my skews to around 30 degrees and roughing gouges to around 40 degrees. I only turn smaller items so I don't use bowl gouges anymore so I don't know the angle I used anymore but you may want to include yours for the benefit of other turners. My question is which angles do you typically use when you are sharpening your turning chisels? Tim.
