The mailman brought me my Thompson lathe tools today! I got the 1/8” parting tool, 3/8” spindle gouge, 3/8” Bowl gouge, and 3/4” bowl gouge. Now all I have to do is wait for my lathe to get here that I ordered on black friday so I can make some handles for them and try them out! If I like them I might order some more! :D

Looking forward to hearing how they work for you. Debating on buying a bowl gouge myself. There seems to be so much snake oil with lathe tools, but there website seems straight forward.

Better pics upon request lol, my internet is slow so loading a lot of photos is difficult and annoying.

Congtats on the purchase of quality tools.. I purchased a 1/2 deep V bowl gouge about 3 years ago, and it scared to stuff out of me every time I used it. It took 2 years before I could just get it and use it like it’s meant to be used….. Jerry (in Tucson)

Maybe do a blog on how to use the V bowl gouge Jerry as it looks

like a challenge to master.
