Solid turning tools


Solid turning tools

Anyone have solid models of turning tools they are willing to share. I am looking for 3/4" shank turning/grooving/facing/threading tools and any kind of boring tools. I have used Pro/Man for milling, but I am new to using Pro/Man for turning and could use some help getting started.

Thanks for any help,
