Guess if can sharpen HSS, TN, & tungsten cutters that go with Sorby’s Turnmaster tool might prove more economical than carbide cutters. They sell a sharpening jig, guess can make your own.

While nice kit, more into cutting than scraping so probable would not buy a Turnmaster tool and cutters.
Do not own any carbide tools either prefer traditional turning tools.
