I’m new to turning… I picked up the Rikon 70-220VSR Midi Lathe that has 12.5” clearance and 20” centers
I want to make my own carbide tools.
I would like to get 1 of each of the round, square, radius & diamond.
I plan to mount the square cutter on a square bar, the round cutter on a round bar, not sure if to go round bar or square bar for the diamond and radius. I”m planning to use 1/2” stock for both the round and square. What do you recommend?
What size of each do you recommend for the size stuff I would be turning with the above lathe?
Any feedback and information would be greatly appreciated.
