What if you could turn all day and not worry about sharpening your tools? With the Ci1 Easy Rougher from Easy Wood Tools, when the edge gets dull you can just turn the cutter 90° and keep on turning.
The manufacturer CNC-machines the Ci1’s shaft from solid stainless steel bar stock. The shaft fits into a finished maple handle and accepts three different cutters, depending on whether you want a square, 4″ radius, or 2″ radius cut. The tool cuts up to 1/2″ deep per pass left, right, or straight using the same approach angle.
The Ci1 generally ships with the 4″ radius cutter for around $130. Replacement cutters run about $14. Since they claim the Ci1 produces large volumes of shavings, you can also buy a Lexan chip deflector that attaches directly to the shaft to deflect them away from you.
