Last weekend the Woodpeckers rep was demonstrating their new line of carbide lathe tools at the Fort Worth Woodcraft. The shafts have flat bottoms and angled sides so they can be held at a 45 degree angle left or right. He was getting amazingly smooth results in everything he turned.

If you take a small cut, soft skimming pressure you should be able to get a good finish cut. Sanding will still be required of course but the amount of pressure will dictate the finished product. The diameter comes into play but controlling the tool and pressure will really turn the carbide into something extremely easy to use to hog off loads of material or smooth out for some easy sanding.
