small hollowing tools?

>Hi all -

I am looking to purchase some small hollowing tools for making boxes and ornaments on my mini lathe. I have been experimenting with grinding down Allen wrenches and have not been too happy with the resulting surface not to mention the difficulty in reaching the ?shoulder? area around the opening. I am considering the mini Keltons or the Stotts or one or more of the Hamlet formed scrapers. Any comments or suggestions on these choices or other alternatives will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Eric
