No Longer Here, BY CHOICE
When I got my lathe, I went and purchased a cheap set of tools. I think it has 8 tools in it. I will eventually replace the ones I use with higher quality tools once I get this sharpening thing down.
My question today is about hollowing. My set came with a couple spindle guoges, a detail gouge, a couple of scews, a parting tool and a couple scrapers. It didnt come with anything for bowls and end grain hollowing and I'd like to start messing around with some lidded boxes and small bowls. I think I have narrowed it down to Sorby tools but which ones would you reccomend for small bowls and such?
Also, I dont have a roughing guoge. What size do most of you prefer? Ive been using my 1" (largest I have) spindle gouge and my home made easy wood tool for roughing.
