DIY Carbide Tools

The past couple days i decided to try and make my own carbide tip lathe tools.  I have watched a few videos on how to do it.  I made my handles first as seen below with the raw steel.

Once my carbide tips came in, I drill the holes at the tips of the steel.  Did some shaping of the ends.  I must admit knowing what tap to use is a pain int he arse!!!!

Here they are in all there glory!!!
