Nice read on HSS tools. You can see from list of ingredients what goes into making HSS. The list not really complete but should make you feel better about your purchases.

Resellers of PSI tools often run sales or may or may not be little cheaper than ordering from PSI. Check shipping cost too!

Normally Bodger turning tools carbon steel and work very nice. Not sure Highland Hardware’s China made Bodger tools worth the money. Since many of the foundries in Sheffield England close hard to get quality carbon steel tools. Foundries still operating in Sheffield England do produce exotic steels today.

Craft Supplies (woodturnerscatalog) artisan tools made by Henry Taylor always worth a look. Packard Woodworks Hamlet M2 tools worth a look too. Both offer discounts for buying more than one tool.
