    I cannot comment on how these knives work as I have yet to actually use on the new lathe, but they are the ones I have been looking for and believe they will do the trick.

    Comments about WoodRiver "Mini" Turning Tool Set, 5 piece :

    These tiny tools are perfect for working in tight spots. After tweaking the bevel on the gouge for personal preference, it's one of the most used tools in my shop. I even have the same gouge in the full length version & it doesn't get pulled out too often anymore. I wouldn't recommend these as a beginners set, or especially not as a primary set, but for finishing/detail work, these are a great addition to any turning shop.

    Comments about WoodRiver "Mini" Turning Tool Set, 5 piece :

    As a weekend hobbiest it was a no brainer to pick these up on the current (April 2013) sale. Gave them a try today and had a great time. They worked well and easily. Im rather small and dont have the body weight or muscle to put behind these yet I could work a piece of zebrawood easily. Cant speak to durrability as they only recieved about an hour and a half of use thus far. If you are a begginer this is a nice starter set. Attached are two photos of a zebrawood hairstick made with this set after removing from the lathe and sanded to 1000, oiled and unfinished.

    Comments about WoodRiver "Mini" Turning Tool Set, 5 piece :

    I ground a fingernail profile on the gouge and its one of my favorites. Easy and quick to sharpen and can do the inside of a small bowl. I use the skew for getting the angle right on the foot of bowls, held at a slight angle to the tool rest. The parting tool is good for small stuff a few inch diameter. This set was great for getting familiar with wood turning tools, and not so intimidating as the bigger tools.
