    Searching for a 1/4" in-cannel gouge

    I know I might get more responses in the Neanderthal Haven but, hope to find some good info here as well. I am looking for a 1/4" in-cannel gouge. I do a lot of floating tenons and I cut the mortises by router. The smaller the mortise the more fussy the fit and I sometime want to open thing up just a bit. A 1/4" in-cannel gouge would make this much quicker than slicing a bit off the tenon or other methods I have tried. I can find them in the $75 - $150 range but, since I am not wholly convinced that my thinking is correct, I was hoping to test my theory with something cheaper. Maybe I am breaking my own rules as I usually advise against throwing money away on "temporary" tools ;-) Anyone know of any products I have not found?

    http://www.thebestthings.com/newtool...ylor_gouge.htm - 1/4" for $35 - that's the best I see unless you have a junky old out cannel and feel motivated enough to try to re-grind it..

    Glenn my searches for this tool lead to curved spoon chisels. I dont see how this helps with cleaning out a mortise. But i found a bent neck chisel that i would think would permit this action.

    Doh! I was just on that site this morning. How did I miss that? Ah, Father Time; thou hast wronged me again . . .
