Great. Thank you. I have CBN wheels, so I won't have a problem sharpening it. They stay sharp for so long, that I will be able to use it at the center and just bring it home from time to time to sharpen, honing it on a diamond hone as needed at the center.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. That is from my three turners. I gave them the loot I collected over the holidays. A 4jaw chuck from Taig, a Jacob's chuck for drilling on the lathe, the pen press for the lathe, and a 15mm carbide roughing tool my husband made each of them. (He is also making them a 12mm round carbide finishing tool, but the inserts are coming by passenger pigeon from China and won't be here for several weeks.

The turning tools were also a big hit. I kept the scraper and the carbide skew for the center...the skew because I can sharpen it with my CBN wheels, and the scraper because we don't have one! The rest I divided among them. Came out with one extra parting tool, and one extra small skew. We can use them at the center.

I cut and drilled blanks for the handles for the carbide tool and each of them turned their own handle today. Happy campers.

Thank you all for helping us, and thank you to mredburn for telling us about the 4 jaw chucks.
