It's a better set from the content point of view but again I don't think they are of the quality of recognised turning tools manufacturers - the big "HSS" stamped on them is the give away. This is just a cheap set put together for Axminster. If you compare these with Axminster's own tools you can spot the difference - Axminster's own are I believe made by Henry Taylor/Hamlet (one and the same company). Another issue is that where a set contains a Bowl Gouge it is supplied with a shortened handle simply so it fits into the box! Consequently it makes the tool harder to use. If memory serves me right the only set I've come across where this wasn't as obvious was a Sorby set.andersonec":3sbzn1ka said:Mark, thanks for that, any idea where I could get them? tried searching on here but keep going round in circles, pun intended!!
What about these? http://www.axminster.co.uk/axminster-ax ... rod822073/
Try Classic Hand Tools http://www.classichandtools.com/ They stock Sorby and Hamlet, have a price match promise, you'll get free shipping on orders over £45 and they're a good company to deal with.andersonec":2u3bxn51 said:Mark, thanks for that, any idea where I could get them? tried searching on here but keep going round in circles, pun intended!!
