9/16 Bob Stocksdale Gouge 15V

$ 219.00

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.

ALL HANDLES NOW SHOWCASE THE NEW VIBRATION GEL DAMPENING SYSTEM - NO MORE LEAD FILLED HANDLES!
One of the greatest things at Glaser Hitec Engineering, is to be blessed with the ability to constantly experiment and innovate. This principle has been the core of our efforts since Jerry started this company back in 1966.

During one of our developments with Space Exploration Projects, we were able to create a gel compound designed to protect and reduce vibration in the compartment which houses spaceship components. The result was a state-of-the-art compound which will replace the lead in ALL our handles, substantially reducing the weight, but increasing the vibration dampening properties which Jerry Glaser developed back in 1985.
>>>We are positive the results will amaze you!
