Subject:
Maybe I shouldn't ask but..........

Ray Carson, New Jersey
>I bought a set of basic turning chisels when I purchased my lathe just a couple of months ago. A gouge, a round nose, a parting tool and a skew.
I've been making some wood chips trying to get back the feel for the lathe and ..........quite frankly I'm ready to upgrade to something better.
I did sharpen the chisels once, and I know I didn't do the best job but they never seemed right from the beginning.
So......
Questions:
1) What's a decent brand name of chisels to buy.
2) What can $200.00 bucks buy that's decent. Maybe $300.00 if needed.
I haven't done any fancy work yet, probably never will but I think a basic set would suit my needs.

Ready everyone..........what would you recommend?

This outa get interesting. :-)
Thanks,
Ray
