I bought this tool set knowing full well that it was not a top quality product. A single tool of top quality would be priced far above what I paid for the 8 pcs. plus case. Saying that....if you are just starting out and want a set to learn on, this set will do the job for you. Please note, that the case was in less than perfect condition. I needed to reglue some seams, and I varnished the case inside and out, just because I wanted to.

Some of the tool handle ferules were loose and needed to be reglued...
Most of the tools were not super sharp, and had burrs on the edges. Keep in mind that to use these tools, you will need to know how to properly sharpen your lathe tools properly. You will be sharpening them often (they are not carbide, just high speed steel). With the tools sharpened, they worked just fine. But this is a process that any wood turner will need to learn anyway, and this set will give you plenty of experience.

The tools came in a timely fashion, so I am not displeased with my purchase. I got exactly what I expected, and nothing more. But then I am a frugal person. This tool set will do the jobs for me that I need.

Ok.

For what these cost I have to say that I am happy.
To get into even the lousy quality low end "good" lathe tools you are looking at spend around 40 to 80 dollars.
These are less than half.

I have been able to sharpen them and use them to make some really nice things, I have little to no money and without these I would have no lathe tools. They do not hold an edge well at all but I like sharpening and I have no issues with reprofiling these edges in all different shapes due to their cost.

First thing I did was make new handles because the included ones are lightweight and in my opinion poor. Once I removed the blades I noticed that the tang on the tool is very small. like about an inch and a half, If you make your own handles make sure to use a decent sized collet as I worry about the integrity of the tang.
But again, for the price I find these to be more than adequate.

If you are strapped for cash and you really need a set of turning tools, OR if you are looking for a set to practice shaping new profiles on then I can't see you going wrong with this set. To say save your money and buy a nice set would definitely be the best advice but considering exactly how cheap these are you could purchase them and still begin saving again and not have made much of an impact to your "better lathe tools fund"

I say buy them. If you can't risk losing the money for these then you may be in for a surprise regarding the costs associated with this hobby.

for a new lathe user these are great for learning how to turn wood and they are good for learning how to sharpen chisels, Since they are inexpensive you don't have to worry about damaging and expensive tool.

What more can I say. I got a lathe real cheap, so didn't want to invest a lot in chisels.

These are working great for what I'm using them on and for learning the basics. Most of the wood I'm using them on is pine, so not sure how they'll work on harder woods. As I start turning harder woods, I'll probably start replacing them one by one with higher quality chisels.

I am new to wood turning. I took a wood turning class at my local community college and loved it. In fact, I loved it so much that I bought a lathe. Since I am new to wood turning I did not know how much of a difference the right tool makes. During my class, I was able to turn a square stock into around stock very quickly using the roughing gouge provided to us in the class. When I bought this set of chisels I was expecting a similar result at home. Boy, was I wrong!!! It takes forever to turn a square stock into a cylinder using the roughing gouge included. Out of the box, the tools are extremely dull. Even after sharpening, they do not stay sharp at all.

These tools are very low quality as 3 of the tools also came with lose handles. If you're new to wood turning like I am, stay away from this set... Wood turning was fun using the tools at my school, it was nothing but frustration when I used these tools.

Save your money and buy a better set.

One has to realize the price vs value in this. Considering the set is about 20 bucks, it's a decent starter set. As many have pointed out it can use some significant sharpening (which is why I give it only 3 stars). The handles are long, the cutting tips large. Should stand up well to use, but if you know nothing about sharpening blades, you'll have to learn before even using them.

Would I recommend the set? Depends. If you'll looking to experiment, it might be what you need. But it's kind of like a guitar: does a beginning guitarist want to buy a cheap guitar that might not play very well (and thus discourage playing) or invest in a good guitar and risk it sitting in a corner because he doesn't use it? That's the age-old question. My suggestion: always buy a good guitar, then you'll appreciate the instrument more.

So do you want to pay $20 for this set or $75 to $150 for a professional set? Depends on your pocketbook and intent. This set is worth $20. That about says it all. ; )
