Tool bits grinding

Jonathan Spool
>I recently acquired an ornamental attachment that also has a tool bit holder that allows you to use the attachment to "mill" wood on your lathe if you so please (using the cross feed tables). I am thinking of experimenting with this, and have ordered some 3/8" square stock, and 1/2" round stock HSS, for this purpose. The only info I can dig up reffering to shaping these tool cutters is for boring bars. I was thinking of trying to cut some boxes with them, and was wondering if anyone out there has had any experience with this that they might want to share.
