I've been carving my little, 6-7" Santa's with a knife for years, and am now having trouble with my hands. I've been reading about the Reciprocating Gouges that are being sold now and was wondering what make and model I might buy to carve the little figures. I saw an ad for an Automach, but the gouges looked too large for the little carvings I do. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I might buy to make my life alittle less painful?
As always, I'd like to thank, in advance, all the folks who so willingly take the time to help me out and answer my questions. Thanks again.
