Carving bar maintenace - how to do it right...

Recommended Posts

Often get the sentence 'Sugi carving bars are alright but they don't last as long as Cannon carving bars' - which may well be true although the Sugi bars people are comparing are around 40% lighter than the Cannon equivalent. We now have the Sugi tough carvers which have been built thicker, no light weight area cut outs and thicker stellite at the tip.



Anyways this fellow seems to know how to look after his bar - the body is in good condition and the nose stelite has only 1mm left to go! 2 and a half years of pretty regular use.


No doubt some could disagree with many of the techniques but hard to disagree with the results.

PS - a pretty long vid so one of the end of the day I reckon - well worth watching all the way through as his is an engineering background so he does come from things in from a non traditional type background.
