    Inaccurate measurements, odd selection

    Comments about WoodRiver High Speed Steel Beginner's Turning Set, 5 piece :

    We were surprised to find that the tool measurements presented in this set are poorly correlated with the actual sizes of the working end of the tool. In particular, the 1/4 inch bowl gouge has a cutting flute that is substantially less than 1/4 inch, making it a poor choice for beginners. Since there is no standard in the industry, I would have expected Woodcraft to highlight this issue to buyers so they can understand what they are getting. Having to discover that this gouge, and all the others in the set are either larger or smaller than the stated size substantially reduces my confidence in the Woodcraft brand. Also, the selection of tools in this set is an odd choice for beginning turners. We, and the experienced wood turner advising us, expected more and got less as we have to buy other basic tools for our starter set.

    I'm not the user but my Daughter in Law who's a high skilled artist and Professor of fine Arts. She's very pleased and surprised with our gifts; the Jet Lathe and these Turning tools. We offered these objects to underline the opening of het new built Studio.
