questions on turning tools..
howdy all. first post! very excited to be picking up my first lathe this weekend_ found a used very for a reasonable price.. anyhow, im sure this has been covered before but i was wondering about hss chisels. locally there is a 8 pc set of record power hss chisels from sheffield for $125. about 10 yrs old but never used.. (coincindentally somebody is selling the same exact set on ebay -but that one has some cracked ferrules) annnyway, wanted to know if anybody has any experience with these?
btw read somewhere else that this brand used to be of very high quality but started outsourcing from china about 2 yrs ago..
