I only have used carbide, made my own tools so it wasn’t that expensive, bough my cutter from captain eddie. One good thing about them is the learning curve is pretty quick and easy. I really want to use traditional tools but haven’t, been nervous about trying to figure out how to use them and sharpen them. One thing I’ve noticed about watching guys use traditional tools, besides a cleaner cut, looks like they’re a lot faster at getting the job done. Carbide seems to take awhile, bogs down my HF lathe pretty easy if you try to take a big cut.
