Looking to expand my arsenal, currently I’m working with the harbor freight set and I’m starting to turning 16” plus’s bowls so I think I need to upgrade. Ideally I would like to buy some light/heavily used tools to see what works for me before investing in a nicer set. I think specifically I’d like to try a 5/8 bowl gouge.

Over the years I have purchased used turning tools from Craigslist & eBay. Any set of HSS High Speed Steel tools will be an upgrade to the cheap Harbor Freight turning tools. Robert Sorby or Hurricane Turning Tools make a decent set of HSS you can find a used set for around $200.00 and under if you look around.

I recently purchased a large tool lot with a number of tools you may want, including some larger bowl gouges from Sorby, Henry Taylor, and Packer. Push me your email address and I’ll send you a list of what I have.
