Product Information:

Character limit per line: 30. Price per line covers all items in set.

This set has the 8 basic tools you'll need for spindle and bowl turning. The 8 piece set includes 1/2" round nose, 1" square nose, 1/4" and 1/2" spindle gouge, 1/4" parting tool, 3/8" bowl gouge, 3/4" roughing gouge, and 3/4" skew. These HSS tools will keep a sharpened edge about six times longer than carbon steel and resist "blued" softening from overheating during grinding or from heavy turning. Ash handles offer firm hand control during use and brass ferrules prevent wood splitting from tool pressure. Overall lengths 17" to 21".

    Comments about Sorby Turning Tool Set, 8 piece :

    Being an absolute beginner at turning, I thought the best approach (after buying my toe-in-the-water mini lathe) would be to get a complete set from a reliable source made by someone of unimpeachable reputation. Done. They're beautifully made, solid and hefty, and I'm sure will last me the rest of my life and hopefully help me learn the art of turning at bit more quickly than if I'd cut costs and bought cheap.
