An Alternative Approach

Turning Type: Spindle
Turning Tools Used: Spindle Roughing Gouge (SRG), Parting Tool, Calipers
Other Items Used: 5/16-24 Set Screws, 5/16-24 Tap, 1/4″ Drill Bit

A great way to save a few dollars on your next turning tool purchase is to buy your tools un-handled and make your own. I came up with a design that works really well. It includes set screws which allow you to remove the tool from the handle if needed.
