The gouge, Fig. 82, which is a chisel of curved section, may have its bevel on either the inside or outside of the curved blade. Figs. 83 and 84 illustrate the manner of holding an outside beveled gouge for taking heavy and light cuts. Gouges cut better when given a circular movement at the cutting edge as the tool is pushed forward.
