Quality set of turning toolsAfter sharing tools in my woodturning class, I decided to buy a set of my own and found this set perfect for me. I use all the tools in the set regularly to make bowls and for spindle work. I especially like the diamond parting tool (the diamond shape is very good for gently getting into a parting groove) and the spindle gouge. The 3/8" size feels perfect for shaping even small and delicate areas and the cut is very smooth. I like the bowl gouge as well, but I think it would be better with more of a swept-back profile than it comes with by default. My teacher was pleased with the quality of the tools and only had one complaint: the handles were shorter than handles for individually bought tools. I don't mind the shorter handles and because they're black, it's easy to tell which ones are mine. The only tool I bought in addition to this set is the Crown thin parting tool. I think if you're looking for a set that will allow you to do both bowl and spindle work, this is a good set.
