Overview

This aptly named gouge sports a traditional, blunt grind profile. It excels at handling end-grain fiber, and other difficult grains. Mike uses his bottom feeder on the interior bottom of a bowl to provide a smooth finish. 

What makes a 5-star bottom feeder?

  • 5/8” parabolic bowl gouge 
  • Shipped sharp with the grind found at Mahoney’s lathe (easily duplicated using a Wolverine jig) 
  • Double bevel reduces catches and unwanted marks on the cutting surface
  • Superior M42 high speed steel with a 10% cobalt content, for unparalleled edge holding 
  • M42 HSS' unique durability and razor edge mean less grinding and cleaner cuts
  • Unmatched flute polish boosts the razor edge and provides efficient chip flow
  • Put comfort and control first with an interchangeable aluminum handle
  • Handcrafted in the USA, and backed by a lifetime guarantee and hassle-free returns

The Specs

  • Parabolic flute, traditional grind at 50º
  • Blade measures 5/8” outside diameter x 13” overall
  • 5/8” tang diameter
  • 16” or 20" x 3/4” handle & 5/8” adapter

    How This Tool Is Built

    We start with the sharpest edge, and we don't stop there. Vanquish vibration, say adios to constant resharpening, and let wispy shavings fly. Delivering superior performance at your lathe drives our manufacturing. 

    We’ve worked with M42 high speed steel for 4 decades, and it’s uniquely suited to woodturning. You’ll grind less - a cobalt additive provides unparalleled edge holding. And the steel produces a finer, sharper edge for clean cuts. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smoother cuts. 

    Our carefully sourced M42 starts as solid stock and is precision machined (not formed) with a unique round tang for unmatched strength. Every gouge sports a distinctive flute polish. This boosts the razor edge and provides efficient chip flow. Learn more about M42 HSS here.

    Rigorous and detailed sums up our manufacturing. Each tool’s vibration-demolishing round tang has a diameter so precise you’ll hear a ‘pop’ when you pull it out of the handle. And every tool leaves our factory razor sharp and backed by a 100% lifetime guarantee. Built to last!

    Rest assured our aluminum handles feel as great as they look. Perfectly weighted for balance and maneuverability, and designed to fit your hand. You’ll forget the handle is even there, in the best way possible. Two set screws secure your tool into the handle and allow removal for sharpening.

    From flute polish to handle knurling, we’re not cutting corners. Whether you’re just starting out, or have been turning for decades, it’s an honor to serve you with quality tools. Learn more about our story here

    Mahoney Bottom Feeder

    The Mike Mahoney bottom feeder from Carter and Sons has been a god sent for my bowl turning. Anyone who has ever experienced the sanding marathon required to smooth the bottom of the inside of a bowl can attest to the fact that better tools matter. The gouge shipped promptly and arrived razor sharp!! I ordered mine unhandled but handled it day one and went straight to the lathe and oh my goodness!!! This thing lays that grain down so smooth and beautifully that its a shame to spoil the surface with sandpaper. What a great tool and a great company to deal with. I couldn’t be happier and as my turning continues i will continue to add high quality Carter and Sons tools to my arsenal. I have the 5/8 bowl gouge, 3/8,1/2 and detail spindle gouges as well as the roughing gouge and skew and with the addition of this bottom feeder my set is becoming more complete. I am very pleased with all these tools and will definitely continue to do business with Carter and Sons. Thanks for a wonderful product!!

    Tool is superb. Arrived razor sharp and ready to rock. Does an amazing job on bowl bottoms, which I have always struggled with. Easy sharpening with the Oneway System. Nothing but love for this tool.

    Hey guys, I have 12 of your tools and I always had a hole that I needed to fill and the Mahone bottom feeder filled that hole perfectly. No more catches on the inside third of a bowl. Thanks again for a great quality tools. The only thing I feel bad for is my grinder. I don’t visit it often anymore. 👍
