Thought I Already Had a Good Set of Tools
By: Leigh McQueen (Feb, 2017)
Although new to woodturning, I wanted to outfit my shop with first-rate tools. I picked up a set from a highly rated tool-maker, but found that I was not satisfied. I stumbled upon TFW's website during a web search and was very impressed and was drawn to the description of the Ashley Iles tools. So I decided to give them a try and have not put them down since. The tools are top-notch. Great weight and balance, very nicely machine, razor sharp out of the box. I started turning pens in November, having turned about 20 now in both wood and acrylics - the majority with the Iles tools. I have a set of carbides and the other set of high speed steel tools but I won't use anything other than my Ashley Iles woodturning tools.
I own this product.
