I still consider myself as a newbie as I have not turned near as much as many of you. I'm asking Santa for some $$$$ to buy a decent quality tool. Right now I have a HF set that is being sharpened by a member of our turning club. I was looking at the Easy Wood Tools in the Woodcraft magazine. The mid size looks about the same size as my HF tools. I don't expect to turn large bowls, etc., but keep to the smaller things. I like the idea of the replaceable tips. The roughing tool with the carbide tip look like it can be a versatile tool. Your opinion is greatly appreciated.
