Hunter carbide tool gloat/question
Jul 6th, 2019 at 3:29pm
 
Went to an estate sale today and picked up 3 different hunter carbide tools and holders - they seem a little short and they are of the no handle option - my gloat is I picked them up for $15 dollars apiece - a lot of stuff was already sold - and these were passed by a bunch of other woodturners  - I guess my question is - has anybody used these? Do you have a picture of a handle you turned ? I also picked up a Australian brand scraper, a small gouge with no handle , a burnisher , and some dust masks!

Hunter makes a few different tools, which ones did you get?

The scrap pile ( it is a very heavy piece of wood)

I am reminded of the fact that I watched the tv show celebrating the anniversary of the discovery of the resting place of the titanic and how they Shouted and jumped for joy - at the discovery - But come to a somber realization that a lot of people had perished me too - somebody passed away and I was buying his stuff dime on a dollar.

Your perspective is refreshingly thoughtful in today's climate...still...I'm guessing the previous owner would be glad to see a fellow turner relish in what he found and to see that they'll still see the light of day, or should I say, new wood to turn.

My wife knows I love Woodcraft and knows how expensive anything with Woodcraft on the name is - she actually helped me by picking up stuff and pointing them out to me - the one way 24x36 lathe went to another turner - it was out of my financial reach !

I know the feeling...three years ago I had an opportunity to upgrade from my NOVA DVR XP to a Vicmarc VL300 for $3k.  I figured I could get at least $1k for my NOVA as it also had the cast iron legs but just couldn't 'justify' the costs even though that would have easily been my 'forever' lathe.  I still think I made the right decision but admittedly there are times when the shoulda, woulda, could-ofs come over me.  Ours is not a cheap hobby and the more experience we get the more we realize 'where' to put our money.
