You are in a spot that all turners were in at one time or another. Some of us are still there (me). For what it is worth, my opinion is do not buy sets. You will not use most of the tools. Before you buy too much, try to decide where your interests lie. i.e. pens, bowls, spindles, etc. It could be difficult to use a scraper on a pen. However, sharpening will always be needed. This issue must be addressed asap. If you are interested in carbides, visit Capt. Eddie Castilin, great videos, advice, and prices on his website. Good luck and stay with it, turning is always worthwhile pastime.
