Default Robert Sorby Turning Tools

I am selling a lightly used set of Robert Sorby woodturning tools (item 67HS). They have recently been professionally sharpened. I am asking $195.00 plus shipping. I originally paid over $300 for them and they are now listing for $237 on Amazon.

I like these tools but I need to raise some money and I have some carbide tools that I prefer.

Thanks!







(The bit you see on the tip of some of them is a rubberized protector that they came back from the sharpener with.)

Sorry, just saw this reply (forgot to subscribe to my own message )

The two longest tools have 12" handles (the metal part of the longest is 7"). The three shorter ones have 10" handles.

Thanks

Suggest you try the carbide before selling these. Even though I have made and sold carbide turning tools, I know they are not to everyone's liking. A lot who try carbide quickly revert to their steel turners.

Dropped again... $150.00. If I can't sell them at that, I'll need to do something else with them.

Thanks much!
