I am a very mediocre turner, despite having made over 100 bowls. What I do well, is shop around and buy, buy, buy. Anyway, Hartville tools has a 15% off of woodturning tools, and if you buy more than $75. the shipping is free. On the last sale, I bought a bunch of Oneway strongholds as their price was the best around. I have no affiliation with them, don't know the owners or salespeople personally, but my dealings with them have been excellent.
