making small tools

>I've made some 3/8 " hollowing tools from O-1 drill rod. Now I would like to make some 1/4 " tools, but I keep thinking that they will vibrate too much -- even for fairly small forms. Is there a readily available material that would vibrate less? Do you recommend any commercial hollowing tools in the 1/4 diameter size?
