A great set of lathe tools
The tools arrived sharp and ready to work. I particularly like the large and relatively heavy handles. The wood handles are very comfortable. I strongly recommend this tool set for beginners and experienced wood workers.

Reasonable priced spindle turning set.
These probably don't compare to Sorby tools, but for someone just starting out turning, this is a pretty decent set of tools. They sharpen well, and will hold the edge throughout a project. They are the perfect length for turning smaller items.

Turning Tool Set by Great Neck.
This tool set was very useful for most of my turning projects.The only tool missing from this set was a Bowl Gouge. I will need to purchase this tool by itself. All the other tools were well built with good balance and wood stocks.I did purchase the Wolverine tool sharpener kit to keep all the tools handy with sharp cutting edges. The length of the tools are perfect for that balance when cutting.Good job on the design.

good starter set
A good set to learn with that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. The tools do need to be sharpened often.

Good tools for the price
After a little sharpening these tools work great. I am very pleased with this set. Not the top quality of turning tools but the price cannot be beat.

Jim B on Feb 11, 2019
I bought a new Lathe and did not want to spend a lot of money on the turning tools as I plan to add better tools over time. I also felt that some tools are used for roughing and used infrequently and I could get by with a lower quality tool.
