RMT Originals Gougers


Welcome to my RMT Gouger Page:


My gouger is the product of a desire to build a stable machine that conformed to the Principles that Marcel Tabuteau established in developing the Double Radius  Gouge that is the Baseline of the American School of Oboe Reed making.


As a freshman at LSU 1969,  it was my goal to make a gouging machine someday and this is the fulfillment of that dream that I expressed to my teacher Earnest Harrison.


There were several features that I wanted to incorporate into my machine that would solve some of the problems of the various machines that are in use today.


First - was to retain the main principles of the Graff machine that Tabuteau worked with and are still the baseline of enabling the Double Radius Gouge.


Second - was to have all adjustments addressed from the top of the machine.


Third - was to use standard Aluminum extrusions for the construction of the machine. With the exception of the bed that is a custom extrusion.


Forth - total adjustably for a flexible adjustment of all aspects in setting up the machine. 


Fifth -  Affordable Pricing.
