Osprey Tools … If you are comfortable with a conventional gouge, you will like the Osprey for finish cuts. It is used like any conventional gouge. Anchor, Bevel, Cut. It is a gouge that never needs sharpened.

Hercules Tools … Especially for the new turner, you will take to this tool quickly. Just traverse the tool back and forth along the tool rest. For roughing cuts, the impact shock goes into the tool, to the rest blade, and is dispersed into the lathe. For finish cuts, drop the handle and ride the bevel on the cutter.

Tapered Tools … If you like to turn small hollow forms such as hollow globe Christmas ornaments, boxes, ort bowls or other small hollowed items the #1 Taper 3-piece set is an excellent choice. The #1 Taper straight tool can open up a hollow form to provide room for the swan neck tools. The #1 Taper shoulder tool allows hollowing to the area under the shoulder of a hollow form. The #1 Taper C-hook tool cleans up the belly of small hollow forms.

Badger Tools … For boxes, bowls with undercut rims, vases and other hollow forms the long and strong Hunter Badger #5 straight and swan neck tools are the best choices. Both tools are fabricated on round 5/8” shafts with tapers near the cutting edge where 3/8” round carbide cutters do the work. The Badger #5 Straight tool can hollow to the user’s desired depth and open up the form to provide room for the Badger #5 Swan neck. The Badger swan neck has the perfect shape to reach under the rim of boxes or hollow forms for difficult under cuts.
