Another hollowing tool

Iím kind of getting ahead of myself just because I still have not made a single bowl on my lathe and even though I already have all the tools to do so, just not the knowledge lol. So one of the machinist made me this tool, I would call it a deep hollowing tool with interchangeable tips, the shaft is made out of ĺ high strength steel and its high strength chrome plated, I think this was used as part of a cylinder in a bobcat, so I know its strong, on one end would be the handle and on the other would be the hole to accept Ĺ round steel with whatever cutter I want, it will most likely be cold rolled steel, I can probably make attachments out of Ĺ square and somehow turn one end round, not sure what to do as my experience is not at that level yet on my lathe, Iím still a new turner as of 2 months ago. I may even sell it to fund other stuff or possibly trade for pen or bowl blanks, not sure, what do you guys think?

If your interested in turning hollow vessels get John Jordan's DVD. He uses tools not too different from what you have designed with HSS cutters.
If you interested in turning bowls correctly get Bill Grumbine's DVD on bowl turning.
You can find these at Amazon.com
These are the two best DVD's on those techniques that I've seen and will guide you and hopefully reduce the learning curve which can be substantial if you try to learn by just going at it or some of the Youtube video's that teach incorrect methods.
