I use carbide cutting tools on all my turning projects in addition to some traditional HSS tools.
Each carbide tool only costs me about $13 each. I only purchase the cutters and the bar stock.
Carbide cutters are about $10 – $12 (depending on size) and the bar stock (1/2” x 24”L) is $5.
24”L stock gives me 2 pieces. The handles are scrap wood or pipe. I prefer the pipe because it makes the tool
heavier and helps dampen vibrations. I add some hose over the pipe.
