>At least they are not NEW!
A while back I was given a set of 8 turning tools with the following on the wood handles: Ward's Power Kraft. I think they are carbon steel.
I understand these date back about 25 years or so, from the times when Montgomery Ward was a Sears competitor.
When I got the tools, they were dirty and rusty. I have cleaned and sharpened the gouges, of course being very careful not to overheat them. They cut very well, I get nice wood ribbons from the roughing gouge.
Anybody remember these ?
