Hank:

Not to much more to add to topic.

I for one when first getting into turning attended a class in Utah CSUSA where Richard Raffan was the instructor, so I was able to learn from the start from the master of scrapers and bowl gouges.

Then there is another turner named David Ellsworth who is the master on the fingernail gouge, who has good material in both DVD and books.

Alan Lacer is by far the master of the Skew, he also has DVD and books of instructions. Good You Tube stuff.

So the bottom line of all this is that there are lots of information out there and you just have to gather it up and practice. Don't for get what is on You tube.

Good luck mastering the tools of out trade.
