I’d like to buy used and that is kind of my intent. Thanks for the help thus far! my problem is I wouldn’t know a decent cutting tool from a bargain basement crap tool. Any particular brands I should look for or stay away from? Am I fine as long as the tool is a decent (C3 or better) grade carbide or are most lathe cutting tools HSS?

Edit – also I just picked up a worksharp for my plane irons and bench chisels. Is that practical for sharpening turning tools as well?
