Overview

Buying on a budget doesn't always mean a sacrifice in quality, and this Robert Sorby turning tool set proves it, offering an excellent turning set for those on a budget who still want the best. With three of the most versatile turning tools available - an 1/8" Parting Tool, a 3/8" Spindle Gouge, and a 3/4" Roughing Gouge - the kit makes an excellent starter set for beginning turners and experienced turners alike. The chisels come in a beautiful burgundy box, so it's a great gift item. The set includes the instructional DVD, "Starting Out Woodturning". All tools are made from top-quality HSS with solid ash handles and brass ferrules in Sheffield, England.
