I was looking through a Penn State Industries catalog and saw a three piece carbide tipped, pen turning lathe chisel set. The caption said the chisels were 11 inches overall in length with 8 inch handles. When I looked them up on the internet the description said that you may never need to sharpen these chisels. The price was $44.95 for the set of three. A 1/8 inch parting tool, a 1/2 inch oval skew chisel, and a 3/8 inch spindle gouge. The description also said this set was perfect for the "sharpening challenged." It's as if they knew all about me. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts about this set.
I'm a complete novice when it comes to the lathe, so everything is a learning experience. It seems that the people on this forum have a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Thanks in advance.
