    Can't help. Mine are Don Pencil. I believe most are pretty similar. Sorby has a good reputation. I'll betcha you would not be disappointed with a Sorby set.

    I think that is a decent unit. The neighbor has one and he likes it a lot.

    got home today and this was sitting on my porch. It's the sorby hollow master and a new hunter #4 carbide cutter.

    Congrats, Steve. I've not used the Hollowmaster (my hand's are too weak for much freehand hollowing), but I've got one of the Hunter cutters for my hollowing rig, and I like it.

    Happy shop-cleaning.
