Glaser Hitec 9/16 Bob Stocksdale Gouge 15V

$ 215.00

For the first time this tool is being offered with our premium CPM15V steel. In honor of Bob Stocksdale and Jerry Glaser, we want to offer you the best of Jerry’s creations in a superb and unmatched material.

This gouge is phenomenal! I can only what Bob Stocksdale felt when he received his first Glaser Hitec gouge!.

READ THIS QUOTE BY J.PAUL FENNEL
Jerry Glaser sold a gouge called the Stocksdale Gouge back in the late ’80′s and early ’90′s. Superbly made, the handles were made from Goncalo Alves, with a stainless steel ferrule. The high speed steel was M4, twice as wear resistant as M2. Jerry made the very first HSS gouge for Stocksdale around 1960, when everything else made was from high carbon steel. He formed Turnmaster Tools to sell HSS turning tools because the main manufacturers at the time were not interested in changing from their method of toolmaking. In my opinion, Glaser single-handedly changed the woodturning world with his introduction of HSS tools.

Jerry Glaser is the only toolmaker in the world to understand and use the properties of CPM15V in a woodturning tool.

This superb material is intended for applications requiring exceptional wear resistance. It has more vanadium carbides in its composite than CPM10V and provides more wear resistance and longer tool life. CPM15V also offers an alternative to solid carbide where carbide fails by fracture or where intricate tool design makes carbide difficult or risky to fabricate. Due to it’s 15% vanadium content CPM15V will outwear CPM10V.

Jerry Glaser was immediately famous for devising the proper flute angles, proper mass and stability” for most demanding turning operations.  The flute shapes are precision ground using state of the art CNC Grinding Machines. Then, they are hardened and cryogenically tempered (Jerry has been using Cryogenics since 1995 (read about Glaser Cryogenic Treatments here) and subjected to our proprietary “Surface Compacting Technology” which enhances the surface of the steel. The process creates a “micro burr” surface which proves to be “extremely effective” on the cutting edge of the tool.

Although sharpened, the initial grind is placed just to allow the woodturner to start using the tools right away. It is up to the user to determine if he/she wants to keep the same grind shape after initial use.

Assembled on a 16″ Glaser Hitec Handle (Black).

MINIGLASER QR SHOWS UP IN ENGLAND!

English publication Woodturning Magazine (www.woodworkersinstitute.com) recently published a press release over our QR system in their "Hot Stuff" section.


READ ABOUT IT

SYNERGY ULTRAGOUGE AND MINIGLASER QR
We have been extremely successful with our unique and patented "Quick-Release" system. Soon, woodturners around the world, will be able to enjoy our patented QR adapter in our upcoming Synergy Ultragouge tool line and enjoy the outstanding properties of our newly developed steel Cauldron 305.

In its final developmental phase, Synergy is bound to impact the industry with its fantastic modularity and performance.

-----------------------------------

STILL MORE NEWS FROM ENGLAND!

We are also on the pre-manufacturing phase of David Springett's tool line.

I am sure you all know of David's fantastic books and videos http://www.davidspringett.fws1.com). He has a new edition of his "Woodturning Wizardry" book out for sale. You will not regret owning this book.

I had the pleasure to receive him at our facility. It was in a way a dream come true for me. I have always admired David since I started woodturning. To know that I will have the honor to manufacture his tools, is an absolute treat for me.

David's tools will most definitely be showcased with our QR adapter!

This will be an exciting ride!


-----------------------------------

QR SYSTEM!

Our miniGlaser QR continues to break boundaries. All of the customers who have purchase this fantastic set have reported that the performance and easiness of tool changes are incredible..

Recently, one of our customers, Mr. Bill Wyko at the Sawmill Creek Forum, stated that our miniGlaser tools have what he calls" "Napoleon Syndrome"... They DO NOT know they are small. They tackle big turning like any other large tool.

We will continue to innovate! That is the Glaser Legacy we are responsible to continue!




THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND FOR KEEPING AMERICAN MANUFACTURING IN THE USA.
