Beading tools ?

Pete in Holland, MI
>Any of you folks use bead forming tools ? This guy is struggling turning beads with detail gouges and skews on rims of bowls. Penn State has a new 4 piece set of HSS tools for $42. Not a Sorby, but probably adequate for my limited purposes.

Wondering if beading tools do in fact work, or if I'd be better to focus practicing with the skew & detail gouge?

Your thoughts ?

Thanx........
