Have you been in contact with Liogier to get update on delivery I contacted Noel Liogier on the e-mail below when mine was running a bit late and he responded right away saying that it was due to the Christmas holidays and that they had had a tempering furnace down and gave me a revised delivery date which he met. I suppose you have to allow for the fact that these are hand made to order he does not have stock and he is using equipment that is extremely old.
I am sure when you do get them you will love them, they are great tools.

They are exceptional tools.
I have had a little go the 12″ 6 grain dose remove wood pretty fast but still leaves Not a finish but quite a clean surface. The 10″ 9 grain refines the surface but even that removes wood quite quickly. The 7″ 9 grain leaves a pretty smooth refined finish. Go over once more with a file and you have a super smooth finish 😉

NICE! Enjoy them.
Picked up 2 more vintage tools. 1 Charles Buck 1 1/4″ gouge, not sure of the sweep and a general tools double barrel marking gauge. The making gauge was a bit of an impulse buy. I was intrigued by it and I felt the price was right. It has pins that do the marking, even though it looks like a modern wheel marking gauge. The gouge will come in handy making scoops and seats. Only issue I see with the gouge it was beveled on the inside and I’m not sure if I should grind it off and re bevel it on the outside…. There is definitely enough steel to remove the bevel..15 May 2014 at 9:07 pm #57167
The gouge you have bought is a firmer gouge.
Quite unusual to see one that big.
I have 4 of this type of firmer gouge 1/4″ up 1″
Firmer gouge normally use to scribe an ovolo moulding on rail of a window or door.
Found this link to explain more detail.
You will need to put bevel on outside if you intend to use as a carving gouge.

Here is a picture of a stopped scribe which is how normally done by hand
A through scribe done by spindle moulder or Electric router.

That book was restricted for me, but I did try googling and searching you tube, but the only information on sticking ovolos was with rabbet planes and a round plane..
Considering this was purchased second hand, do you think it’s worth reshaping the gouge or searching out an out channel gouge. (if that’s the correct terminology)

As it is a pretty big gouge and the likelihood you scribing ovolo that big you may never come across. You can use as is it is to remove waste but dose not perform in the same way a carving gouge dose.
I would possible turn it into a carving gouge.
If you do not have a grinding wheel it will be quite a task as you have got to remove the inside bevel then put a bevel on outside.
If you have dry grinder remember to dip in water regularly so don’t lose temper.
Also if you want to keep as it is you will need slip stones to sharpen inside bevel.
