If you like to turn miniatures such as dolls house furniture, jewellery and similar items then this is a great little set of five turning tools. Featuring high speed steel blades with fine hardwood handles. Overall length of each tool is approximately 280mm. The set includes 3.2mm(1/8") and 6.3mm(1/4") gouges, 1.6mm(1/16") parting tool, 6.3mm(1/4") domed scraper and 6.3mm(1/4") skew chisel, all neatly contained in a wooden box.

Good value setGreat for my purposes (I make small scale dolls house furniture). The finish on the handles could be better and the scraper seems a pointless inclusion for small scale work, but the tools take a good edge, and at this price you can't really complain. If you've got the cash buy the Henry Taylor set, But I've been using these for a year or more, and got excellent results.

Absolute RubbishReceived these chisels as a present and must say I am extremely disappointed. The handles look like they were made and finished by nursery kids! The chisels are all fitted squint in the handles, the small gouge is actually bent and as for HSS mmmm I'm not so sure. For the first time ever I'm not impressed with Axminster I'm sad to say. Would not Recommend even at this cheap price.
