With no pictures didn’t happen.

Biggest draw back to carbide steel is cost and need to replace when can no longer sharpen. True most commercial carbide tools are scrapers but that’s okay for somethings turners turn they cannot be beat. Talking about dense antlers, exotic woods, bone or stone.

Yes carbide scrapers are okay for what they can do but don’t think will ever completely replace conventional turning tools. Not sure average turner has time or money to make their own cardbide gouges, but prehaps some company will start making them some day.
