The hurricane bowl guage set Bruyet shared is a great set but they are pretty long so if you have a mini lathe as I do they area a little long. You might look for some with shorter shafts and handles. Benjamin’s Best makes a good one that is relatively inexpensive. Another good tool for beginners are the Rockler carbide tools. They are a little easier to learn to use than the bowl gauges, though they are a little pricey for what you get so look for other brands that might be cheaper.
