I have a good supply of lathe chisels. There are a few I’d like to try before I buy so I’m considering perhaps joining a club in my town and maybe get to try some hollowers out.
I’ve been looking at some good HSS steel blanks. They say they are M2 – M42 which indicates good high speed steel. They need to have an edge put on them about every 15 minutes or so to keep cutting good. But they are a breeze to sharpen or even change the angle on.
I wondered if any LJ’s make their own chisels and if they had any resources to share.
