WT Tools and Enco carry “tool bits” in round and square a farily reasonable prices. Ie at WT tool in square stock ¼ X 8 HSS is $2.25 or ¼ X 6 HSS 5% cobalt is $4.50. Eight inch is the longest they carry but even 6” length gives you lots of tool usage.

Most woodworking tools are M2 HSS. This is the about the lowest classification for HSS but works fine for woodturning.

If you have a dead drill (or see someone throwing one away) it is easy to make a handle. This is a ¼” chuck from a $2.00 yard sale drill.
