Topic: Electric gougers

Hello.
Is here anyone who uses electric gouging machine? I have heard about it but never saw any website or company which produces it. There is not much help from google as well.

Re: Electric gougers

It's not on their website, but I'm pretty sure that Reeds 'n Stuff makes one. I think that's who it was. Udo was demonstrating it at the IDRS conference last summer. Pretty impressive. You put a dry piece of cane in the machine, closed the lid, hit the button and in about 10 seconds a sand paper bit had gouged the piece while a built-in vacuum took up the sawdust. It was completely automatic.

I have no idea how expensive it was. My guess is around 6,000 euro based on the price of his other machines. Maybe more, who knows.
