These sweep charts
are close approximations of the various chisel and gouge sweeps.
Chisels and Skew Chisels have straight cutting edges.
Gouges have a curved cutting edge that is the arc of a
circle. Veiner Gouges have a deep, U shaped cutting edge.
A lower sweep number indicates a flatter, less curve tool. The
higher the number the more deeply curved the cutting edge.
V Tools are classified by the angle formed by the two wings of
the V. Common V Tool angles are 45°, 60°, 75° and 100°. Charts
are not to scale. Sizes in mm.
