Those are "mini" tools, Larry. A 1/4" roughing gouge? A 1/8" spindle

For a set, the HF is the best for the money. But all the OP really needs

diamond parting tool
3/4" or 1" roughing gouge
3/8" or 1/2" spindle gouge
1/2" or 3/4" round nose scraper

that gets old pretty quick. When he gets around to bowl (faceplate)
turning he can add a 1/2" bowl gouge.
But don't listen to me, here's a list from the local turners club:
