I wanted to try the carbide tipped turning tools but did not want to pay over $130
for one tool. I purchased the steel and carbide cutters from Capt. Eddie and made
the handles myself. The top one is made from scrap walnut and a copper fitting.
The bottom tool is a heavy steel pipe that I drill and tapped for set screws. Then I used
a black hose I had left over from a garbage disposal install. The carbide cutters work
great. I don’t do a lot of turning but have found myself using the carbide tipped tools
often.

I too purchased one of Cpt Eddie’s packages and am very happy I did so!
