Are you using these Harry? That's a really good price on replaceable tip turning tools.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

No Charles, I haven't used the lathe for quite a while due to health reasons but, when I start back I shall probably buy a set. I do have a good selection of normal turning tools which I eventually learned to sharpen.

The gouges require more dexterity to sharpen them than it does to use them. I was eyeing the bent tip tool for inside turning. It sells for less than $50 Can with handle and tip and I'm sure something comparable from Lee Valley is over $100. I'm wondering about the ability of the grub screws to prevent the torque on the tip from spinning it in the handle but I suppose the shaft could be dimpled where the grub screws go and that might do it.

I started out with a HF lathe but it died. Got a Rikon 70-050VS which has been discontinued. If you look at a lot of lathes, many are made in the same factory, are identical except for the paint and label. I started with a HF tool set and have used most of them over the years.
Carbide is becoming popular as you just turn the blade, don't have to sharpen like regular tools. I suggest you also look at this website, www.woodturner.org. Great folks and zeroes on this particular hobby or addiction as it can be called. Good luck. There should be a AAW chapter near you.

You, probably like me were surprised to see an 80 grit wheel supplied with the half speed grinder but, it does a perfect job that I can use straight away and it's like a razor, and that my friend is how I sharpen all my chisels. Before this set-up I was pretty hopeless, often asking friends to sharpen my chisels.
