I really enjoy woodworking and especially hand tool and turning. I really like to make small lathe tools for detail work. I use HSS in different sizes depending on the tool I need or want to make. In this picture from left to right, point detail tool, 1/4” point and round nose scrapers, 1/4” round skew, 1/4” double ended three point tool, small Allen wrench hollowing tool, 1/4” fluteless gouge.

In this picture from left to right: 3/8” three point tool from and old screwdriver, 3/8” x 3/8” round negative rake scraper, 1/4” fluteless gouge again, 1/2” round skew.

I use these tools pretty regularly and they give me a lot of options when doing different small projects. I use the Oneway thread-lok ferrule so that I can just change out the tool needed.

Very interesting and I really like the Oneway thread-lok ferrule handle idea.
Will be great on the small stuff I will be doing for my models.

-- There's a hundred ways to do anything, alot depends on the tools at hand.

Thank you. What is really nice about the Oneway TLF is that it goes on via a taper and tightens down onto the taper. You can take it off and use it on different handles you make. I also keep a long and a short handle depending on the tool and application. Also the hole you drill in the handle isn’t as critical. As long as the taper is turned the TLF will line up and the tool with always be straight.
