I recently picked up a few older Craftsman carbide tipped lathe tools for a couple bucks. I have a spindle gouge, skew and scraper. I'm wonder do you sharpen these tools as you would any HSS tool? Or?

Wow I've never seen craftsman tools with carbide tips. Are you sure they aren't High Speed steel.
Anyway it requires a special carbide grinding wheel. Mine is green I don't know if they all are. Or you can use diamond hones that you can get at a lot of hardware stores. I use the E-Z lap paddles. You can also get them at Knife stores or Woodcraft.
