Hi Jeffrey,

I'm an old fuddy duddy when it comes to tool selection. However, here in DK, we have some very "good" salesmen, promoting carbide cutters to inexperienced turners. It usually does not turn out well.

My suggestion is to make a small investment in a bowl gouge or two and a round nosed scraper - and learn to sharpen and use them. They do the inside job much better and the learning curve is much shorter, and you can always use the carbide gizmos later to what they are really good for.
