1/2" Spindle Gouge
These Thompson Lathe Tools are made from the best steel on the market, CPM 10V (A-11) a powder metal manufactured by Crucible Materials Corporation with a 9.75% vanadium content to hold an edge longer and has proven history in wood-turning. The steel is hardened to 60-62 Rockwell, triple tempered with a cryogenic treatment between the first and second temper. The cryogenic treatment at this stage transforms the bulk of the retained austinite to martensite and form very fine "eta" carbides much finer than tempering alone. This increases the durability and toughness of the steel used to make Thompson Lathe Tools.
