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".

Donated

San Diego woodturner Brian Saunders has worked for several years with programs that teach veterans the art of woodturning, so when Brian won a mini lathe donated by Woodcraft at the Penturner’s Rendezvous it seemed logical to give it to a veteran.

    Great tools, terrible packaging

    These are great tools. They hold a sharp edge for a long time and are super easy to sharpen with a One Way/Wolverine sharpening jig system including the Vari-grind. The grips are good, but should have an offset so that they don't roll when set down on a table. Unfortunately, the box into which Robert Sorby packs them is terrible. The tools are barely held in place with flimsy cardboard slots. My set of 8 arrived with only 2 tools still in their slots. The rest were jumbled up and the tow of the skew was chipped, so I had to re-grind it (which was less trouble than shipping it back.) For a set of tools this expensive and well-made, the manufacturer should show more respect for their product and the customer by packaging them securely. Had they done so, my rating would have been 5 stars.

    Sorby 8 pc. Turning Tool Set

    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.
