Lathe parting tool

I've ordered a bunch of tooling from RDG (, Chronos (, and CTC ( for the lathe. There's at least one more of these deep-discount tool stores: These stores sell tools of mostly Chinese origin, but I think they will do just fine for hobby use, and the price-level certainly is only a fraction of what European tooling costs. If anyone knows more of these let me know!

The first things to arrive were a set of center drills and this Glanze parting tool from Chronos. I've settled on only a "Myford-size" T00 tool-post which has holders for max. 13 mm tools.
