A little handy work, I have been looking at the carbide lathe chisels but unwilling to shell out $100+ for one when I knew that I could make one myself with a carbide insert, some hot rolled 1/2 inch steel bar, a copper pluming fitting and a little scrap ash lumber..From tip to butt 25" long handle finished with comes one with a radius cutter and one with a round cutter.

Have People say to me "I wish that I could do that." I respond with "Did someone tell you that you couldn't."
