I have no experience with their tools but know can buy handled or unhandled. They are a new turning tool vendor and know they stand by their tools from reading post on other message boards. They have more vendors selling there products.

More familiar with Doug Thomson tools which can buy handled or unhandled. Again Doug will make things right if something goes south. Better to from him, just few other vendors sell his tools.

Could tell if those tools had anything to do with metal spinning not beefy enough but might be.

Back in the day could buy a wood lathe strictly for metal spinning or combination of woodturning too right from lathe manufacturer. Tool rest & tools either optional or bought from lathe manufacturer. Have several metal spinners using wood lathes today all you need is different tool rest & set of tools. Know several metal spinners have demonstrated the craft at different turning clubs & symposiums.
