The term "turning tools" can apply to any tools that are used in the process of turning. Turning is a machining process that involves the use of a cutting tool like a tool bit to shape, cut, or grind away at a workpiece that is turning or rotating, usually with the aid of a lathe. There are various different types of turning tools, including wood turning tools and lathe cutting tools like spindle gouges, oval skew chisels, roughing gouges, and hollowing tools.
Turning tools are used together with a lathe. A lathe is a machine tool which spins or rotates a workpiece around a set axis. This allows the turning tools to be used to cut, sand, face, shape, or turn the actual workpiece in an even and precise way. The way in which turning tools and lathes are used is quite similar to how potter's wheels and tools are used to spin and shape pieces of clay into pottery.
