Most of what I see are bench chisels. They are not what you want on a lathe, but these are for your hand drill lathe, right?
Not much torque there, I wouldn't be scared to try them, but I 'd wear a full face shield anyway. Bench chisels have shorter tangs to hold them in the handle.

You need a gouge. Scrapers and parting tools you can make out of any good steel,but I've not yet seen a homemade gouge.

I got this set at a flea market for $2. http://www.harborfreight.com/8-piece-wood-lathe-turning-tool-kit-60663-9915.html Watch for it on sale. I usually would not recommend these. The gouge profiles are wrong for what I like, they don't stay sharp , but for $2 I'll grind them into whatever I want.
