Easy Rougher - The Next Step in Woodturning

ci1_detail2The Easy Rougher is a carbide cutter woodturning tool that addresses fatigue, safety, and efficiency like no other type of tool on the market. Designed to be kept flat on the tool rest and level to the floor, the Easy Rougher will effortlessly hog away massive amounts of material for any woodturning process without the need for sharpening. The tool design provides support directly beneath the cutting edge transferring the cutting pressure downward allowing the lathe to "take the pounding" that you would normally suffer through when using a conventional bowl gouge for roughing. No more ‘white knuckling’ a bowl gouge.

  • Cuts left, right and straight in without changing approach angle
  • Truly deeper cuts – up to 1" off the diameter in one pass with the Full Size Rougher.
  • Requires very little physical strength or exertion
  • Your feet and hips stay in nearly the same position for the blank roughing process.
  • Very minimal handle bouncing on irregular shaped blanks
  • Reduced kick-back or sucking into work piece
  • Available Chip Deflector keeps most projectiles away from the face and neck
  • No intimidating cutting angles to learn and remember
  • No bevels to ride
  • No fear of a dangerous catch

ci1_detail23The Full Size Rougher accepts 3 different cutters: 
Ci1-R2, Ci1-R4, or the Ci1-Square.

The Mini and Mid-Size Easy Rougher accepts 2 different cutters: 
Ci2-R2 or the Ci2-Square.

ci1_detail1The crowned, R2 and R4, cutters excel at spindle roughing and finishing and working inside bowls. 
Choose the square cutter for cutting square shoulders such as tenons on bowls and spindle work. 
For maximum efficiency, have a tool for each cutter. The Easy Rougher tool bars are CNC machined from solid stainless steel bar stock.

Replacement carbide cutter number is engraved right on the tool bar. 
Available in four sizes – see purchase page for all products, sizes and accessories.

Lexan® Chip Deflector

deflector

The Easy Rougher is capable of plunge cuts similar to using a giant parting tool. This type of cut sends massive amounts of material straight back at the operator. You will not regret having this deflector in place for those cuts.

 

 

  • Not a substitute for proper eye protection.
  • Deflector was designed to be looked over rather than through.
  • The Easy Rougher tools produce large volumes of shavings like no other tool you have ever experienced.
  • Available in two sizes - See purchase page for available sizes.

Easy Finisher - Yet Another Innovation in Woodturning

With another step forward in woodturning innovation, Easy Wood Tools now offers you a tool to take up where the Easy Rougher leaves off. The Easy Finisher has a round carbide cutter perfect for doing the inside work on smaller bowls and for larger coves on spindle work. Our carbide inserts are made in the USA and we are pleased to offer you a tool that is 100% "made in America."

"If you own one of our existing Easy Roughers, you well know by now that we deliver even more than we advertise, as hard as is was for you to believe before your first purchase. I assure you the productivity of this tool will exceed your highest expectations. You just can not predict the possibilities or joy this tool will provide you. In testing the prototypes for this new design, I found myself creating forms that were never even on my list to try because the dangers and complications of existing tools were just not worth the trouble." ~Craig Jackson, Founder

Like the other Easy tools, the Easy Finishers are designed to be used with the tool rest set so that when the tool is held level the top of the cutter is on center. Then just keep it level to the floor and flat on the tool rest for all types of cuts... it does not get any easier than that. There are no complicated approach angles, or bevels to ride. The design of this tool allows the Easy Finisher to effortlessly cut from the center of a bowl out to the rim OR from the rim to the center! All without changing any angles whatsoever. You just stand in one spot and cut coming and going until you get to the shape you want.

The Easy Finisher utilizes the same carbide cutter technology as the Easy Rougher that reduces strain and fatigue, improves productivity, and virtually eliminates sharpening. It comes loaded with one round cutter and when it gets dull, you just rotate the cutter for a fresh cut. Please note: The round cutters are not interchangeable with the carbide cutters on the Easy Rougher tool bars.

When the cutter eventually gets dull, just loosen the retaining screw and rotate cutter about 1/4 of a turn, then re-tighten the screw.

We promise this tool will open up a whole new level of design possibilities for your craft and it will exceed your expectations. If not, return for a complete refund.

Replacement carbide cutter number is engraved right on the tool bar.

Available in four sizes - Mini, Mid-Size, Full-Size and Pro. See purchase page for all products, sizes and accessories.

 

detailer-2

Easy Detailer

The Easy Detailer tools really pick up where other tools leave off and provide another level of woodturning creativity as the unique diamond cutter shape fits in tight places where the cutters on the other tools will just not fit.

These tools were designed for the primary purpose of doing the small intricate work and cutting final details on your projects such as small coves and beads on both spindle and bowl work. They are also very handy for cutting chuck tenons and making inside reverse angle cuts for inside chucking bowls with dovetail jaws. You may find they work well for hogging your green wood projects too.

The Easy Detailers are engineered to cut going straight in employing just the nose of the tool.

The Easy Detailer tools are engineered with a reduced relief angle to the long cuttings edges making the long edges less aggressive when held in contact with the wood as the nose of the tool is cutting. In use, the long edge is intended to perform as a "control surface" and serve to be in contact with the wood just behind the cut; much like a bevel is being rubbed.

For safety reasons, avoid plunging the tool so deep into the work at once to the depth you would have both sides of the cutter in contact with the wood too greatly at the same time. This could cause too much force at once and lead to binding of the tool in the groove.

Each diamond-shaped Easy Detailer cutter is engineered to fit all size Detailer tools in our current product line. When the cutter eventually dulls, just loosen the retaining screw and rotate cutter, then re-tighten the screw.

Replacement carbide cutter number is engraved right on the tool bar.
Available in four sizes - see purchase page for all products, sizes and accessories.
