    like those that Jet Axminster Record Power and Charnwood among other companies produce in great numbers However it is vital not only to use the right tools for the task in hand but those tools must be capable of being presented to the timber correctly when using any particualr woodturning lathe For that to happen tools and lathe need to be in the correct proportion to each other The popular bench top lathes typically have a fixed headstock and a 10 to 12 inch diameter swing over the bed However tools need to be of a size that allows them to be manoeuvred over the bed of the lathe and in the restricted space that separates the workpiece from the tailstock The tools created by the mainstream manufacturers are simply too large to enable this to happen which is why we have intervened here at The ToolPost The result is a set of woodturning tools that really does answer an ever present specific and vital problem which is impairing the performance of very many woodturners Such a recurrent mismatch between the most common tools and the most common lathes is only going to result in more and more woodturners never achieving their full potential These tools are the no compromise solution having been specifically designed for easier and more successful turning on a smaller lathe They are not miniature tools they are simply smaller versions of the full size tools with which many woodturners will be familiar with appropriately proportioned handles to suit the situation in which they are designed to be used This unique set consists of a 1 2 roughing gouge 3 8 spindle gouge 3 8 bowl gouge 1 16 narrow parting tool with modified tip geometry 1 2 rolled edge skew chisel and 1 x 1
