I have to make a 1/8" to 3/16" channel about 3/8" deep and can't use power
tools because I'd damage some adjacent metal, so am looking into using a
carving gouge. If you use an outside bevel gouge, you can't go any deep-
er than the tool because the size of the groove you're making is the inside
diameter of the blade, right? So I'm wondering how small an inside bevel
gouge you can buy, cause the honing would get pretty dicey. Could anyone
here give me some good carving tool sources on the net? Thanks.
You can get veiners that are 1/8 across. But they are not 3/8 inch
"tall". But if you work hard at it you may get that deep. Perhaps
dragging a small scorp and working your way down, would be another
approach. I am thinking of the round kind. Oh and if you can start with
something smaller, go to the depth you want, then redo it to the
finished width you desire.

thats what the xsection looks like . Sources ! henry talor, ashly isles and
probably some of the swiss and german knock offs.
Look for a Pfeil instead of the Henry Taylor. The Henry Taylor need
sharpening, not just honing , the Pfeil are ready to use, or leave
hesitation marks on your wrists if you carelessly reach for one on the back
healing well, thank you.
