I'm not normally a cheerleader, but you hit it square. Pricing is a factor in all our purchases This tool has worked well for me on both end and parallel grain. I talked with them before purchasing. Lots of pride in their work.

Let me know.

Carbide roughing tool

mjbalata, Just to let you know that I ordered the "Peeler" and I think I will be happy with it , as you are. The guys at J&B are very nice and accommodating. I own the Easy Rougher and I like it but I thought it was over priced ,so I thought I would give the "Peeler" a try. Thanks for the info.

Good info on the peeler, Thanks! I have been looking around for one of these type of tools to try for awhile just didn't want to pay the $$$. That price is much easier to take.

Does anyone know what size the replacement cutter knife is for the peeler? (15 mm x15 mm x 2.5 mm or 14 mm x 14 mm x 2 mm or something else)

Here is a site where you can order replacement knives. At the present time they have the first size mentioned above on sale for $1.99 each. The only thing is they sell them in a box of 10, which will last a long time!

djwood1, You can read my thread on new "Tuff Kid" on the block. I just bought the Peeler and I really like it and I think you will too, if you get one. The cutter is 14mm x 14mm and I just ordered a pack of ten from Global Tooling. The price is $1.25 each and sold in packs of ten. The 15mm is about $20. a pack. They took my oder by phone. Their ph.# is on the web site. Hope this helps

I just got myself the C1 LE easy rougher... it's a damn fine tool and very, very good at whittling the wood away. It might be relatively expensive compared to the Peeler but I don't care, it's awesome.

Thanks HLW!

With the little bit of research I have done, the 15mmx15mmx2.5mm might have more selection of replacement knives. I have found straight, radius corners, 2" radius, 4" radius and 8" radius knives. The 2" radius would be close to cutting with one of the round tools that are out there.

Well those cutter prices are certainly a lot cheaper than replacements in woodcraft.

If that is the case,myself and Dvoigt can put the Sorby back on the Christmas list. I'm not sure why it would take a special screw to hold a carbide tip vs. a hss tip onto a handle when both are under the same amount of pressure while turning? Has the carbide cutter worked good for you? Let us know.

I've seen replacement cutters for sale that come WITH a replacement screw. Wouldn't that slove the concern with turning the Sorby HSS tool to a carbide?

The Sorby uses a different screw size to the easy rougher.

Is there something special about these screws? I mean, can't you just buy whatever size you need at your local hardware store?

I'm thinking about all the differnt options and want to make sure I don't overlook anything.

Not really. Some cutters have a simple hole, others have a countersunk hole. The holes are often different sizes as are their screws so you do need to find the right type to suit. The easy rougher Ci2 uses a really small screw and there's no way its cutter can be made to fit a Sorby, peeler or the bigger rougher for example. Lots of Sorby cutters require a flat head screw, most carbides need a countersunk screw etc. The Rougher screws are also flush to the top of the cutter, having a screw head protruding *may* affect it's efficiency due to gap loading. Who knows, just saying that although it's not really difficult to swap these things around for the most part there are a couple of things to consider.

Just common sense really.
