With a curved tool rest on the outside of a bowl you prevent the “overhang” of your gouge becoming too large. You can place the tool rest closer to the wall along the entire outside of the bowl. To achieve this, the support is also slightly tilted on the shaft, so that the wood does not run against the support.
Robust tool rests always have a hardened top. This ensures an always smooth surface for your tool. So there are no dents or deep scratches in your tool rest. A huge plus!
The curved tool rest is 30 cm (12″) long and can be supplied with a 30 mm post or a 1 inch (25.4 mm) post. (Select in the pull-down menu).
